Tell your supervisor to support animal resources for Yuba County people and pets
Resources are available through community relationships for the pets and people in Yuba County. On the heels of a pandemic with so many people hurting, refusing resources that would help save animals’ lives hurts the people of Yuba County. We need the board of supervisors to support utilization of community offered resources to help the people and pets.
Please sign and share this petition to show that you support safe, humane, and positive change for the pets living in Yuba County and the people who care for them.
Why is this important?
Yuba County is a community that cares for its neighbors. Your voice should lead the way in creating a community that helps it people and its animals. Pets play an important role, let’s work together to keep them safe.
The people and pets in Yuba County deserve programs that focus on providing safe and positive outlets for cats and dogs entering shelters. You are a critical part of ensuring that pets and people have access to positive programs and resources. It is important your supervisor knows that saving cats and dogs is important to the community.
Some examples of these programs include community cat programming (to ensure cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and returned to their homes), foster programming (to provide temporary housing to pets prior to finding their permanent homes), and progressive field services and resources to ensure people have what they need to keep their pets.
By advocating for these programs and continued collaboration with other community organizations, you can be part of creating a healthier community for pets and people. Show your support by signing and sharing today!
More info on cat programming and its importance:
Around two-thirds of the animals being killed in shelters nationwide are cats. Cats need community support to ensure that they have safe, positive placement outside of animal shelters.
Community cat programs utilize trap-neuter-return (TNR) which 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.
