NM: Protect cats in Doña Ana County

Ask county commissioners to reconsider cruel animal ordinance.

Cats in Doña Ana County need your voice!

The new section of the county's animal control ordinance, Section 134-7 (4), states that healthy cats cannot be returned to their homes if they were picked up within 2 MILES of the Rio Grande or within 2000 feet of an arroyo — instead, they will be at risk of euthanasia. 

This means most of the county is a no-go zone for cats. The ordinance also impedes the rights of residents who want to practice trap-neuter-return (TNR) on their own property. 

TAKE ACTION: Urge county commissioners to reconsider and repeal the ordinance.
