This just in: The lifesaving bill introduced by Prince George’s County Council Member Mary Lehman to protect cats in Trap-Neuter-Return programs just unanimously passed the Transportation, Health and Environment Committee!

Under Council Member Lehman’s proposed law, most eartipped cats trapped by animal control will be immediately returned to their home outdoorsnot impounded in shelters where they could be killed.

We are not done yet! This good bill will not become law unless it is approved by the full County Council. Stay tuned in November when we will need to take further action.
