October 16 marked the 13th annual celebration of National Feral Cat Day® with record numbers of Americans registering their support for embracing humane animal control and sheltering practices that protect the lives of community cats.
This year, more than 430 individuals, community nonprofit groups, spay/neuter clinics, animal shelters and other organizations held events in honor of National Feral Cat Day.
Every year, the movement to protect the lives of cats grows stronger, nationwide. Hundreds of municipal and private shelters and animal control agencies have embraced Trap-Neuter-Return and abandoned the cruelty of “˜catch and kill’. Communities are seeing firsthand that these innovative programs really work.
