Cameron County believes in unity- we stand together to support our community's dogs, cats, & people

You can rally with your community to expand resources for pet owners to keep people and pets safe and healthy by advocating for community cat programs throughout Cameron County.

Please sign and share this petition to show that you support safe, humane, and positive change for the cats living in your community and the people who care for them.

Why is this important?

We need you and your voice to be a part of this community effort! The people of Cameron County are a critical part of ensuring that pets and people have access to positive programs and resources.

The Humane Society of Harlingen is working hard to ensure access to programs that save animals lives and create a healthier community for people and pets including support to help keep pets with their caretakers, pet food and supply pantries, access to adoptable animals, and animal foster programs.

The people of Cameron County deserve to see positive programs that provide safe and healthy solutions for people and pets grow and become more accessible across the county.

You can play a pivotal role in this effort to ensure Cameron county is the most humane and kind community we can be.

Additional information on cat programming:

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. Community cat programs use trap-neuter-return (TNR) to save cats. The process is simple: Community cats are trapped, evaluated by veterinarians, vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and returned to their outdoor homes, unable to have kittens. And these programs are already working around the country.
