Create change for Pasadena cats
We need you and your voice to lead the effort in Pasadena and show city council you want resources that help people and animals in Pasadena.
Please sign and share this petition to show that you support safe, humane, and positive change for the cats in your community and those who care for them.
Why is this important?
Around two-thirds of the animals being killed in shelters nationwide are cats. 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. Many of these cats are thriving living outdoors because someone in their community cares for them.
We, the people of Pasadena, can help these cats (while keeping our communities safe!) with trap-neuter-return (TNR).
Community cat programs utilize TNR and 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.
This 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.
Sign here to show that we, the people of Pasadena, support this method for managing the cats living in our communities.
