  1. Having adopted almost a dozen strays over the years, I’d like to thank the mayor for bringing a little visibility to this issue. It’s not something that gets a lot of attention, and unless we’re talking about microchipping or something, it doesn’t generate a lot of interest.

    Hopefully more prospective pet owners will consider adoption.
