Global Cat Day 2017

On October 16, compassionate people around the world come together to stand up for policies that protect the cats in their communities. Join Sandpiper Cat Blog and Alley Cat Allies for their Global Cat Day campaign. Take a pledge, your support helps us better advocate for cats who call the outdoors their home!

FACT: Local animal control laws often don't consider that the only safe home for a community cat is the outdoors. Inf act, many ordinances go as far as fining those generous caregivers who know all too well that community cats aren't socialized to humans and would be considered unadoptable in a shelter. Together, we can change local laws that punish kind-hearted cat lovers who help community cats.

FACT: Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the gold standard of cat population control. It's the only humane and effective method proven to stabilize and reduce cat populations. Under TNR, cats living outside are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, ear tipped, and then returned to their outdoor home.

FACT: So far, over 650 municipalities have implemented TNR ordinances and policies. Over the past fifteen years, the number has increased tenfold, and that number continues to increase. It's thanks to the advocacy of people like you that communities are embracing the humane, effective approach to community cats. 

I have recently moved to Cape May, New Jersey, and they have two programs for TNR. One being the New Jersey Trap Neuter Return Project. The other program is Animal Alliance of Cape May County, which offers low-cost spay and neuter programs.
