Sign a Petition: Protect Cape May,NJ’s Cats

The Cape May, New Jersey Cats Need Your Support!
The City of Cape May has been pressured by The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to abolish its successful humane cat management program known as Trap-Neuter-Return - a move that the city does not want to make and that would endanger the lives of all cats - owned, stray and feral.
Cape May was one of the first local governments to implement Trap-Neuter-Return as the policy for feral cats – a decision which has proven enormously successful. Cape May’s stray and feral cat population has dropped 80 percent since the program’s inception in the mid-1990s, from around 450 cats to under 100 today. The population continues to decline.
If the program is forced to end, outdoor cats will be trapped and killed. Nationwide, 70 to 72% of cats entering shelters are killed, and for feral cats, this statistic rises to virtually 100%.
