Alley Cat Allies Pursues Policy Change to Ensure No Cats Are Killed Again

The East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) based in Oakland, California, has operated for decades with a policy to kill cats in parklands. Most of the killing involved shooting cats in the dead of night. These horrific acts of animal cruelty were carried out using taxpayer money in an outrageous abuse of the public trust.

Alley Cat Allies is working to bring an end to lethal policy and enact humane, effective measures that will protect all animals.
