Allow the important work of the Euclid Beach Feral Cat Project to continue.

As of June 2013, the State of Ohio and City of Cleveland, appointed planning and management of the Euclid Beach lakefront to the Cleveland Metroparks. The Cleveland Metroparks do not have a program in place that deals with feral and abandoned animals.
The Euclid Beach Feral Cat Project is a non-profit organization that takes care of this area’s feral and dumped cat population. Their wish is to continue with their current program: caring for the 17 feral cats who reside at Euclid Beach lakefront by allowing them to live the rest of their natural lives, while monitoring the area for new cats and kittens abandoned at Euclid Beach. This is an ideal solution with no cost to Cleveland Metroparks.
Since the appointing of Cleveland Metroparks, the Euclid Beach Feral Cat Project has retained a verbal agreement with the Cleveland Metroparks to continue their project; a win for the cats and the community of visitors and residence who enjoy the presence of these beautiful creatures.
Moving forward to January 2014, the Cleveland Metroparks has indicated a desire to remove the Euclid Beach feral cat colonies, successfully controlled and monitored by the EBFCP. The EBFCP has made their presentation to Cleveland Metroparks, but has not been given any indication that the EBFCP would be allowed to continue their important work.
The monitoring and caring for the established cat colonies is a needed project for the communities bordering the Euclid Beach Lakefront. This project provides the home for 17 healthy - spayed/neutered and vaccinated - adult feral cats. Most of these cats are over 8 years old. The EBFCP is not adding any new cats to their colonies.
Without the EBFCP’s constant monitoring, the abandoned and feral cat population will return to over 100 reproducing, sick, starving, and shelter-less cats, exactly what was found five years ago when the project first began.
By signing this petition, you are helping the Euclid Beach Feral Cat Project by showing how important it is that the Cleveland Metroparks make the right decision. This decision will allow the current cats the ability to live out their natural sheltered lives at Euclid Beach, and let the EBFCP continue caring for these misplaced and abandon animals with food, shelter, and proper care.
The Euclid Beach Feral Cat Project will continue to rescue newly abandoned cats and kittens dumped on the lakefront, and find homes without adding to the current feral cat population.
