Legislative Help for Feral/Free-Roaming/Community Cats

Please read Susanne Kogut’s blog post about SB 359 and follow her guide for helping this population of homeless animals.

SB 359 is a bill designed to permit more wide-scale trap, neuter, return efforts in our Virginia Communities. This Bill was introduced by the City of Charlottesville and presented to the Senate Agriculture, Conservation and Natural Resources by the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA. SB 359 was reported out (approved) by a 10 to 5 vote. This bill was discussed for over 40 minutes with opposition that we believe was simply not truthful in their statements. Fortunately the members of the Senate Committee were able to see through this smoke and mirror presentation and voted in favor of the Bill.

It’s especially important to thank Senator Deeds and your legislator (if she or he supported SB 359).
