Fort Bend Pets Alive! to help promote National Feral Cat Day on Oct. 16 !
Fort Bend Pets Alive! is helping to promote continued animal welfare in our community by participating in National Feral Cat Day on Oct. 16, 2015. There are hundreds of events taking place across the country in honor of National Feral Cat Day, a day to call for an end to the killing of cats in animal control pounds and shelters, the leading documented cause of death for cats in the United States. The number of deaths of feral cats contributed to 16% of the euthanasia rate last year in our county shelter!!

Alley Cat Allies, the national advocate for feral and stray cats and the foremost authority on Trap- Neuter-Return, launched National Feral Cat Day in 2001. This year, thousands of people will celebrate National Feral Cat Day by calling for their local animal shelters to reform their policies and adopt Trap-Neuter-Return programs to save feral cats. Through Trap-Neuter- Return, outdoor cats are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and returned to their outdoor home. Hundreds of local governments now have ordinances endorsing Trap- Neuter-Return, which is rapidly becoming the predominant approach to feral cats!
