From Petition Organizer: On August 20th, 2013 we attended a meeting of the South Newton Township supervisors and because of the pressure brought on my the petition, the news media and the people attending the meeting the change their minds and allowed us to proceed with the TNR programs. We are now in the process of raising money and implementing TNR. We must be successful!

These cats are clearly being marked for extinction through the Townships' witch hunt of these innocent animals! South Newton Township in Pennsylvania is going to have a feral cat "cull" trapping and killing free roaming farmcats because of an incident with a cat having rabies in the area. They have hired a local "trapper" who will trap and kill (and I am not talking about a TNR trap, ie leg hold and other methods) and will be killing any cats caught. Residents have been warned to keep their pets indoors during the timeframe of September 7-8th. ALL cats, healthy or not will be killed!!
