Care and feeding: Greenfield/Hancock Animal Management Director Jeff Leffel gives Wolfgang a treat after taking him out for a walk. Leffel plans on bringing a mandatory spay and neuter law before the city council early next year. Proponents say such a law would cut down on unwanted litters and the high cost of caring for them.

Animal welfare officials and Mayor Dick Pasco are advocating for a mandatory spay and neuter law in the city, and the ordinance will likely be brought to the Greenfield City Council for consideration in the first months of 2013.
