I am organizing a rally in front of City Hall from 1:00-2:00 p.m. on

begins considering the proposed animal code the next day. I will

allowing Trap-Neuter-Return (instead of trap-kill) for feral cat
colonies, and (2) requiring spay-neuter for outdoor cats and dogs.
You may of course bring a poster with your own theme if you like.
Please let me know if you're interested in attending so that I can
prepare a sufficient number of posters and decide media details.

Commerce and Dolorosa. From I-37 you can head west on Commerce, or

Garage on Flores, 2 blocks south of City Hall, offers unlimited time

As you consider the proposed animal code revision, please support the
provisions requiring spay-neuter for outdoor cats, intact permits for
dogs that are not spayed or neutered, and litter permits which
In 2006, 32,799 dogs and cats were euthanized at the city pound due
to massive overbreeding. Spay-neuter laws are a reasonable attempt
to stop reckless overbreeding which results in thousands of homeless
animals being euthanized. It would protect taxpayers from
continually "footing the bill" for those causing the animal
overpopulation crisis which costs the city millions.
