A follow up to my post yesterday, A Dark Day for Cats, about the South Newton Township decision to trap and kill all outdoor cats for two days in September…
First, thanks to all of you who signed the petition yesterday. Looks like they got the 2500 signatures they were looking for!
Alley Cat Allies has offered the Township free rabies shots for all animals in the Township if they rescind their plan. Read the press release here.
On the Facebook page for Alley Cats, PAWS of Central PA has offered to help the Township with TNR and is offering them 30 free spay/neuters…a very good offer as well. They haven’t heard back from the Township.
It seems that some local residents have also contacted an attorney about this decision…would love to see that go forward too. And I’m very glad to know that not all Township residents are on board with their governing bodies on this one.
I know others are reaching out to the Township too, including folks from our own Steelton Community Cats program.
I am keeping fingers and toes and paws crossed that the Township changes its plans and does the right thing. Especially with all the folks who are willing to help them do just that.
