Alley Cat Allies is Back in Puerto Rico to Protect Cats
We are on the ground to meet the cats and determine Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) strategy, meet with local cat advocates, and attend a meeting with the Puerto Rico government on how to ensure the cats can stay in outdoor homes where they thrive.
Since the U.S. National Park Service (NPS) announced a plan to remove community cats from their outdoor homes along the famous Paseo del Morro, Alley Cat Allies has been strategizing how to stop this lethal action. We’re taking the next steps this week.
Taking the Next Steps for Cats and TNR in Granite Shoals
Alley Cat Allies was on the ground in Granite Shoals, Texas, this week to strategize how to protect cats!
We explored the community and attended a meeting with the Granite Shoals Police Department, Hill Country Humane Society, and other advocates to discuss how to create a strong, effective TNR program for community cats in the city.
You may remember that we condemned a leaked discussion between the former city manager of Granite Shoals and a wildlife advisory committee about shooting, poisoning, and mass killing community cats.
Now, we’re looking forward to working with Granite Shoals to create true change that will save cats’ lives and benefit the community. We’ll keep you updated!
Congratulations, Sirius and Lucy
Sirius and his sister Lucy, to whom he’s very bonded, were adopted together this week!
The two have been through quite a lot, including losing their previous home, and it took care and patience to bring them out of their shells again. It’s all worth it to see them find a loving home.
We still have amazing animals waiting to be adopted, so please meet them and spread the word at alleycat.org/Adopt.
Discover Critical Resources for Cats
When we discovered orange tabby Lance had an injury we believed resulted from an act of cruelty, we rushed him to emergency veterinary care. Today, he’s healed, bold as ever (he truly acts like he owns his neighborhood), and happy!
Alley Cat Allies is here to help you access critical, affordable veterinary services for the cats you care for as well. To that end, we’re compiling a state-by-state Low-Cost Veterinary Care Directory at alleycat.org/VetDirect.
We also get questions all the time about accessing no-cost cat food for pet and community cats. To help as many people as possible find critical resources, we’re updating our state-by-state Animal Food Bank Directory.
Check it out and share at alleycat.org/FoodBank.
