Nashville’s Community Cats On MDHA Properties Need Your Help

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!


Ask MDHA to continue allowing their employees and residents to extend kindness and care for the community cats residing on their properties.  Ask MDHA not to remove the community cats by signing this petition. 

Cats have been spayed/neutered and vaccinated. Some have been adopted. The caretakers have been modeling a successful nationally recognized community cat protocol.

That protocol is trap-neuter-return (TNR) and caretaking.  Disney is one of the pioneers modeling this program with the 200 community cats living on their grounds and hotel properties.  New York City is one of several cities across the U.S. that has implemented this kind of program citywide. It is also supported by their mayor.

Nashville’s Mayor Megan Barry also supports TNR.  She has allocated $100,000 of city funding to the community cat program (a partnership between Pet Community Center and Metro Animal Control).  She has stated:  "Animal Welfare is a quality of life issue, and one that's deeply important to Nashville residents. By working together to care for and protect the most vulnerable animals, we are heading down a path that will allow us to better serve the healthy and adoptable pets and reduce animal overpopulation and euthanasia."

Part of MDHA's mission statement is to support neighborhoods, strengthen communities and help build a greater Nashville.  Caring for the community cats is in keeping with their mission statement, as well as in keeping with Nashville's growing reputation  as an animal friendly city.

Please sign this petition and share this information.  Help protect these vulnerable animals so that Nashville continues to progress in a positive humane direction.
