Background

In August 2012, code enforcement officials in Fort Worth, Texas, proposed an ordinance that would have placed heavy fines and restrictions on caring citizens doing TNR for feral cats. Alley Cat Allies stepped in to point out the flaws in this proposal and lobby for an ordinance that encouraged TNR and cat caregivers. After months of organizing, educating, and traveling across the country to meet with stakeholders, we prevailed; in November 2012, the Fort Worth City Council reversed their course and unanimously passed a law more supportive of TNR.
