• Save Cats in the Bronx
    In order to create compassionate no-kill communities and achieve no-kill for cats nationwide, we need communities to support lifesaving programs like Trap-Neuter-Return [TNR]. The process is simple: cats are caught (often by volunteers), evaluated by veterinarians, vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and returned to their original outdoor homes, unable to have kittens. These programs are also proven to be the most cost-effective, veterinarian-approved, and animal-friendly solution for controlling and reducing free-roaming cat populations.

  • Tell city council: support cat programming in Tulsa
    Tulsa is working hard to ensure access to programs that save animals lives and create a healthier community for people and pets but community support is needed to advocate for programs that are proven to help communities across the nation. Community cat programming and why Tulsa residents should have access: Community cats (aka outdoor cats) risk losing their lives when they are brought to local shelters by well meaning residents who are trying to help them. Many of these cats are thriving living outdoors because someone in their community cares for them. Allowing these cats to return to their outdoor homes frees up shelter resources that can be utilized for cats and dogs truly in need of shelter support. That's where community cat programs come in. These programs use trap-neuter-vaccinate-return (TNVR) to save cats and reunite them with the people who care for them. The process is simple: Community cats are trapped, evaluated by veterinarians, vaccinated, spayed or neutered, ear-tipped, and returned to their outdoor homes, unable to have kittens. Your voice is a critical part of ensuring that pets and people in Tulsa have access to these resources. Become part of a driven and diverse group of people who believe that all pets and people deserve compassion, and that -- when we work together -- we can create real change for pets in need. Thank you for supporting community cats in your neighborhood, and for everything that you do for the animals!

  • Tell the City Council: Support Lifesaving Programs for Cats
    Trap-Neuter-Return is an animal-friendly, veterinarian-approved, and cost-effective method for keeping free-roaming cats safe, healthy, and out of shelters while reducing their numbers over time. The cats are humanely trapped then sterilized and vaccinated before being returned to the place where they were found. And these programs are already working around the country.

  • El Condado de Cameron esta unido para apoyar a los animales y personas de nuestra comunidad
    ¿Porque esto es importante? ¡Necesitamos que usted y su voz sean parte de este esfuerzo comunitario! La gente del condado de Cameron es una parte fundamental para garantizar que las mascotas y las personas tengan acceso a programas y recursos positivos. La Sociedad Protectora de Animales de Harlingen está trabajando arduamente para garantizar el acceso a programas que salvan vidas de animales y crean una comunidad más saludable para las personas y las mascotas, incluido el apoyo para ayudar a mantener a las mascotas con sus cuidadores, alimentos para mascotas y despensas de suministros, acceso a animales adoptables y programas de fomentar animales. La gente del Condado de Cameron merece que los programas positivos que brindan soluciones seguras y saludables para las personas y las mascotas crezcan y se vuelvan más accesibles en todo el condado. Puede desempeñar un papel fundamental en este esfuerzo para garantizar que el condado de Cameron sea la comunidad más humana y amable que podamos ser. Información adicional sobre la programación de gatos: Los gatos de la comunidad (también conocidos como gatos callejeros o gatos comunitarios) corren el riesgo de perder la vida simplemente porque han establecido un hogar al aire libre. En muchos casos, los llevan a refugios locales, donde es poco probable que los adopten porque muchos de ellos no se socializan con la gente. Ahí es donde entran en juego los programas comunitarios para gatos. Los programas comunitarios para gatos utilizan Capturar-Esterilizar-Soltar (CES) para salvar gatos. El proceso es simple: los gatos de la comunidad son atrapados, evaluados por veterinarios, vacunados, esterilizados o castrados, y devueltos a sus hogares al aire libre, sin poder tener gatitos. Y estos programas ya están funcionando en todo el país.

  • Modernize Bella Vista's Animal Ordinances to reflect TNR
    Community cats (aka stray or free-roaming cats) risk losing their lives simply because they've made a home in the outdoors. In many cases, they are brought to local shelters, where they are unlikely to get adopted because many of them aren't socialized to people. That's where community cat programs come in. These programs use trap-neuter-return (TNR) to save cats. The process is simple: Community cats are trapped, evaluated by veterinarians, vaccinated, spayed or neutered, ear-tipped, and returned to their outdoor homes, unable to have kittens. The people of Bella Vista should not be punished for working to create a healthier community with less free roaming cats. Please stop making volunteers criminals by issuing citations for roaming cats and remove mandatory cat leash laws.

  • Virginians support humane methods for managing cats
    Despite strong support from the Virginia Senate, a sub-committee in the House of Delegates voted to table Senate Bill 1390, which — if passed — would have clarified that trap-neuter-return (TNR) programs are legal throughout the state, helping facilitate lifesaving practices for Virginia's community cats. Let's show the Virginia House of Delegates that our communities care about enacting lifesaving legislation for Virginia's cats. With enough signatures, we can ensure stronger support for this important legislation next time around. Please sign and share this petition today.

  • Help save our lost and homeless cats in the Flathead Valley.
    We have cats in our valley that are falling through the cracks. When the county shelter, local humane society and Kitty Mom’s rescue are full (which is frequently) we have no safety net to support cats that are turned away and left on the streets.

  • Apoye programas de gatos comunitarios en Riverside
    ¿Porque esto es importante? Los gatos de la comunidad (también conocidos como gatos callejeros o ambulantes) corren el riesgo de perder la vida simplemente porque han establecido un hogar en su comunidad. En muchos casos, son llevados a refugios locales, donde es poco probable que los adopten porque muchos de ellos no están socializados con la gente. Muchos de estos gatos están prosperando viviendo dentro su cominidad porque alguien en su comunidad los cuida. Ahí es donde entran los programas comunitarios para gatos. Estos programas usan Capturar, Esterilizar y Soltar (CES) para salvar gatos. El proceso es simple: los gatos de la comunidad son atrapados, evaluados por veterinarios, vacunados, esterilizados o castrados. Se les cortan un poco de la puntita de una oreja para identificarlos como esterilizados y devueltos a sus comunidades, sin poder tener gatitos. Hace tres años, en asociación con Best Friends, el Departamento de Servicios para Animales del Condado de Riverside adoptó este enfoque al dar la bienvenida a un programa comunitario para gatos en su ubicación de Coachella Valley Animal Campus. A principios de 2020, se esterilizaron y castraron hasta 10,000 gatos elegibles a través del programa. El trabajo continúa hoy a menor escala debido a las limitaciones físicas y financieras provocadas por la pandemia, dejando a muchos miembros de la comunidad y gatos sin este recurso necesario. Puede ayudar a salvar las vidas de los gatos de la comunidad y apoyar a las personas que los cuidan, abogando por programas comunitarios de gatos y otros esfuerzos para salvar vidas que se implementarán en todo el condado de Riverside. ¡Gracias por apoyar a los gatos comunitarios en su vecindario y por todo lo que hacen por los animales!

  • Street Cats Need our Help
    In 2016 I found the West Orange TNVR Program. It took a year and a half to get this approved and an ordinance allowing us to TNVR in West Orange, NJ. Unfortunately, surrounding towns do not do any TNR and it is sad how the population is growing and how these animals are suffering. This can be address with support from our legislatures. West Orange TNVR receives no financial support from the township. We depend strictly on donations and fundraisers. We are all volunteers and home based. To date we have spay/neutered 1086 street cats and adopted 623 kittens and adult cats. We have had inoculation, amputations, wounds and many URI We do all we can to save a life.
