NIAGARA COUNTY ENDORSES TNVR FOR FERAL CATS
The Niagara County Board of Health voted unanimously on January 22, 2015 to endorse Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return for controlling feral cats … rather than killing them. The board voted to send a letter to the County Legislature, recommending that it follow Erie County’s lead in passing a resolution in support of TNVR.
ERIE COUNTY LEGISLATURE ENDORSES TNVR
The Erie County Legislature passed a resolution forwarded by Legislator Ted Morton and sponsored by all legislators endorsing Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return (TNVR) as the best method for managing free roaming community cats in the County. The resolution recommends that all municipalities adopt local laws which recognize the benefits of voluntary practice of TNVR by residents. It also mandates a review of the County Sanitary Code to make sure that it is compatible with citizen based TNVR. The resolution was propounded and promoted as part of the activities of the SUNY Buffalo Animal Law Pro Bono Project. The resolution was supported by a number of local organizations, including Feral Cat Focus. READ MORE…
OPERATION “TONAWANDA ISLAND CATS” TNVR PROJECT
Feral Cat FOCUS was very proud to be part of the collaborative TNVR effort called “Operation Tonawanda Island Cats Project”. Many thanks to Danielle Coogan and Sally Merritt and to all the volunteers who gave so much of their time and love to this project. Thank you to Operation PETS Spay-Neuter Clinic of WNY for clearing their schedule to alter, vaccinate and provide medical care, as well as for helping to subsidize this project. Feral Cat FOCUS volunteers gave so much of their time and love to this project, providing transportation and post-operative care. As a result, 71 Tonawanda Island cats were trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and returned to their home on Tonawanda Island in the middle of the Niagara River. The best part of Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return is “R” (watching the cats return home). OPERATION ISLAND CATS VIDEO
