Ask Senate committee members to support the Compassion for Community Cats Law
NJ: Help community cats law move forward
Community cats - free-roaming cats who live outdoors and are cared for by local residents - face uncertain outcomes when they are taken to New Jersey shelters, with many of them being killed. That doesn't have to be the case and a big part of the problem is the lack of funding for trap-neuter-return (TNR, also known as trap-neuter-vaccinate-return or TNVR).
TNR is an animal-friendly, veterinarian-approved, cost-effective, and common-sense method for keeping community cats safe and healthy while reducing their numbers over time. Programs that utilize TNR are proven to benefit people and pets alike in the communities where they are implemented.
On Monday, October 19, the Environment and Energy Committee of the New Jersey State Senate is holding a hearing on S. 1034, the Compassion for Community Cats Law. Among other things, the bill will create a reliable source to fund municipal TNR programs, which will save countless lives throughout the state.
