Yuma Residents: Ask City Council to Support Vouchers for Sterilizing Feral Cats!
The Yuma City Council will consider changes to the feral cat program which will allow vouchers to be used for spay and neuter of feral cats.
Currently residents can get vouchers to trap feral cats and take them to the Humane Society where they are often euthanized, as they are unadoptable.
Advocates of trap, neuter, and return (TNR) have requested the option for vouchers to be used for sterilizing cats. Trap, Neuter, and Return offers the only humane, viable solution to the exponential reproduction of cats on the streets of Yuma. TNR ends the breeding cycle and stabilizes feral cat populations, and reduces euthanasia in already overburdened shelters.
The city council is considering the proposal at a meeting on Tuesday, October 16 at 5 pm.
Please contact your city council member before 5 pm on Tuesday, and ask him or her to support the option of using vouchers to spay and neuter feral cats instead of euthanizing them.
