Don't kill the Portofino cats! Allow them to stay on the property

This petition had 2,348 supporters

Portofino Resort has decided to kill the 12 cats who have been living at the resort for over 4 years. All cats have been fixed and vaccinated, some are even microchipped.  The Trap/Neuter/Return work had the blessing of the resort, in fact Portofino Management even chipped in $500 towards the cost of the surgeries.  The HOA Board in Tower 2 recently made the decision to have the cats living there trapped and killed without input from the rest of the property owners.  The Master Association plans on recommending similar actions to the HOA Boards of the other 4 Towers.  Portofino Management has told us this via email and personal conversation. Unfortunately, there is nowhere for these cats to go.  We've offered a variety of deterrents at our expense. Portofino management hasn't tried any.  Only a small number of people are complaining, other property owners don't want the cats killed.

We have requested a list of specific grievances so we can address, as we're confident we can, and asked them to postpone trapping until we have time to review. Portofino Management has traps set up around Tower 2 without discussion.

You can’t stop people from dumping or feeding cats.  Let’s do it in a controlled manner through TNR and feeding stations to keep the cat population at a minimum.  Removing the cats will not solve the current or future problems.
