Stop Harassing Community Cats and Their Caregivers

*This is the story* Moulton Texas is a little rural town in the country that has always had a cat "problem". There are countless people in Moulton that have lived there for many many years and can attest that the cat "problem" has been around for the last 40 years at the very least. Well now that there is a cat rescue in town the city of Moulton is targeting them. The city is going after them saying that they must follow the city ordinance that says only 5 cats and or dogs are allowed in every household and they are now trying to take and trap the cats form the rescue and euthanize them because they have more than the allowed 5 cats and or dogs on their property. This NON PROFIT rescue has taken more than $16,000 of their own pocket to rescue rehab spay and neuter and re-home animals in the entire city, a fact that can be proven! Something this city has never taken the time to do but of course the one thing the city of Moulton recently did was they put a city ordinance in place to where no one is allowed to feed feral or stray cats in town anymore. This rescue has also brought a $7,000 trap neuter and release grant from petsmart a few months ago and fixed about 75 feral cats in the city BUT now they are being targeted. Why try to ruin or harm the only rescue that has ever stepped up to help the city? Why pretend to tell the citizens of Moulton that they are going to fix the cat "problem" in town when in reality they are only going after the only cat rescue in town instead of helping the entire town of this cat "problem"? There are countless posts on facebook about the cat issue in town and many people are now suggesting the cats be shot or trapped and dumped further in the country. The last thing we want is a massacre of innocent animals! The sad thing is this town has been in the animal rights crosshairs back about 15 years ago when people who worked for the city were actually shooting animals to help alleviate the situation. This is not right something must be done!
