October 10, 2008 You Have The Power To Stop The Killing Machine

Dear Clara,

...A grandmother taken away by the police while playing at home with her grandchildren…A caregiver cited for feeding cats only days after an admitted cat killer walks free…A woman sued by her homeowners association for feeding the outdoor cats…

I hear stories like these every day and they break my heart.

Across this country, citizens are being punished for caring for stray and feral cats. These caregivers did not create the colonies of cats – and they are serving their communities by humanely caring for them. But according to the antiquated animal control laws and uninformed community leaders, each of these Good Samaritans deserves to be punished.

I’m sure you agree – this is outrageous!

And at the same time that these caring citizens are being punished, virtually every feral cat who enters an animal shelter is killed. It’s a “killing machine.” It’s going on all across America. And it’s got to stop. Shockingly, it is our governments and animal control agencies doing the killing. That’s right – the very system that is supposed to care about the welfare of animals is, in fact, slaughtering them.

That’s why I’m asking you to dig deep into your pockets today, and make a gift that reflects your strong love of animals and your belief in justice for our nation’s cats. 

We must change outdated animal control laws, policies and practices. We must stop caregivers from being punished for doing the right thing. We must save the lives of the countless cats who enter animal shelters each year and are killed. And we must do it together.

We cannot be silent as countless cats are killed every day. It is time for the nation’s cat lovers and advocates to stand up and be counted. Together, we’ve got the power to stop the “killing machine.” This is our chance to make a difference for cats who are dying every day.

Please join me to stop this killing by making a contribution to Alley Cat Allies today. The need could not be more urgent. The sooner we receive your gift, the sooner we can stop the killing.

Together, we can change the world for stray and feral cats. Please join me by making a donation to Alley Cat Allies today. Don’t miss this chance to stand up and be counted.

For the cats,

Becky Robinson
President

P.S. I strongly urge you to make your voice heard in your own community. Find out the policy in your town by calling your local shelter. If your city is carrying out the all-too-common policy of killing stray and feral cats, learn how you can advocate to protect your community’s cats. The more people who get involved, the more cats we can protect.
