Stop the Killing of the Cats -- SUPPORT TNR!

      READING, PA

Mohnton Boro is paying $50 per cat to trap, remove and kill them when there is a PetSmart grant available in Berks County from No Nonsense Neutering to sterilize them via Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) for only $10 !! And, Fairchild, another TNR organization in Berks County, also performs feral cat sterilizations for $35.

SIGN THE PETITION TO LET THEM KNOW THAT THEIR DECISION IS NOT ONLY INHUMANE, BUT A WASTE OF TAX PAYERS' MONEY AND IT WILL NOT FIX THE PROBLEM!.

Trapping and killing these cats just leaves more space for other cats to move in to take advantage of the available resources. This is called theVacuum Effect. http://www.alleycat.org/page.aspx?pid=926

Feral cats are automatically euthanized at animal shelters. The Kill rate for all cats at our local shelter is about 85% but the feral cat kill rate is always 100%! Euthanasia should be reserved only for those that have an incurable illness or injury, not the homeless.

Trap-Neuter-Return makes feral cats healthier and ends the breeding cycle, which means no more kittens. Trap-Neuter-Return also improves relationships with the humans who live near them because sterilizing reduces nuisance behaviors and naturally decreases the size of colonies over time. TNR WORKS!

SUPPORT TNR, NOT TRAP & KILL!!!! Please sign this petition.

Thank you.
