Pets bring responsibility

Editor, I strongly feel that there should be strict spay/neuter laws in the entire world, but let us start with Hinesville, Ludowici and Jesup. Without laws or limits, people will continue to be irresponsible, letting their animals breed and abandoning the pups if they can't sell or give them away. I firmly believe if you are not a licensed breeder, then your animals need to be spayed/neutered to stop this epic problem of unwanted/unplanned litters that keep the vicious cycle going on and on.
