I get emails & phone call everyday & night from humans wanting to "get rid of " to quote their cats.

Felines are NOT disposeable-

So what to do??? First of all, we all need help from the super big,ASPAs,Best Friends,Alley Cat Allies & Humane Societies to get *all* cats fixed!!!! From the feral colonies to NOTHING GETS ADOPTED OUT,UNLESS HE or SHE is FIXED!!!

TNR needs to be completely legal- and the businesses and/or neighborhoods who are not helping or getting help need to be charged with negligence and cruelty. TNR is the answer. As is NOT adopting any felines out, who aren't fixed! We can not rely on the public to do this.

It's hard to get the needed attention for this topic when all people care about is the budget. Maybe you could start a letter writing campaign to show the legislaters how many people are concerned about this problem. I think there needs to be stricter punishment for violaters of the law, make them give back to the animal community they wronged. Let me know if I can help you, I'm all for some action!!

My local shelter will not adopt without the animal being spayed or neutered and I agree wholeheartedly with the policy.

The TNR program needs to be country wide for feral colonies. Now that its almost summer I'm sure its kitten season at the animal shelters. Its sad that cats are seen as "lesser" pets to begin with. I know most shelters will not adopt out an animal until it is spayed/neutered a lot of places do...for cats pediatric sterilization has been shown to have little or no effect on them in the future but for puppies it can cause early incontinence. So its a tough call-and I hope that the new homes were screened enough to be able to trust the person to get the dog fixed.
