STOP NYS Parks from Euthanizing/Relocating Feral Cats

New York State Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation has decided to take it upon themselves to decide the fate of feral cats that have lived in there homes in the parks for several years. It was brought to our attention that New York State Parks is currently trying to force the hand of rescuers and colony caretakers to remove, relocate and/or euthanize feral community cats. All cats have been TNR'd (Trapped, Neutered, Vaccinated and Returned) and do not pose a risk to any wild life or people in the park. The cats are fed on a daily basis and provided adequate shelter. The environments stay clean and the colonies are managed. 

Feral cat caretakers are tired of the constant battle we have to fight all too often for innocent animals. The New York State Parks department and the rest of the anti-feral cat community should not be going after the caretakers and the feral cat trappers of the world. This is not the fault of compassionate people. This is the fault of our municipal shelters for allowing the feral cat population for getting out of hand. Additionally, this is New York State Parks fault for not protecting the parks and keeping them from being a dumping ground for cats. The solution is not to relocate feral cats every time there is an issue. The solution is TNR! That same solution has been proven affective time and time again. When will those studies start to matter in the eyes of the law?

PLEASE STAND WITH US AND HELP FIGHT FOR FERAL CATS!! NOT JUST FOR THE CATS AT THE PARK BUT FOR ALL FERAL CATS THAT WILL NEED SUPPORT IN THE FUTURE!

THANK YOU!!
