You can help support saving lives of animals in your community starting with community cats by advocating for lifesaving programs in your area. Please sign and share this petition to show that you support safe, humane and positive solutions for cats living in your community.
Why is this important?
You can help save the lives of cats in your community!
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.
And these programs are already working around the country. The people of Laredo deserve TNVR (trap-neuter-vaccinate-return) programs, which are animal-friendly, cost-effective, and reduce the burden placed on the animal shelter.
You can help save the lives of community cats by advocating for these programs in your area. Thank you for supporting community cats in your neighborhood, and for everything that you do for the animals.
