Trap-Neuter-Return Program For Cats

The Hillsborough Animal Health Foundation (HAHF) wants the trapping, fixing, vaccinating and returning of community cats that wander in neighborhoods, alleys, and behind stores to be outlawed. The group has a pleasant name, but it has adopted extremist positions. If they had their way, this small group would stop all efforts to allow feral cats to live their lives out in their colonies. This tunnel-vision group is dangerous and touts myths and fuzzy-science.

The Truth is that since the Animal Coalition of Tampa’s Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program began in 2002, the number of cat intakes at our county animal control facility has decreased dramatically. In the last seven years, the number of cats brought to the animal control facility has dropped by nearly 50%. Because of TNR, in the last 12 months, the county shelter “euthanized” 10,000 fewer cats than it did in 2005.

The Truth is that because of TNR, a record was set in 2011: Alongside the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, we as a community actually fixed more cats fixed through TNR than were killed at the county shelter. This is a first for our county. There are many beautiful cats still needlessly killed though. Don’t give license to make it more.

Don’t let them outlaw TNR!

Write to your County Commissioner and let them know you support feral cat colonies and TNR in our community! http://www.hillsboroughcounty.org/index.aspx?nid=2597
