Urge city council to support TNR efforts.

The Baltimore City Council needs to hear from TNR supporters! The council recently passed a resolution questioning “whether the city’s current approach to feral cats should be modified or remain the same.” Baltimore’s trap-neuter-return (TNR) program, which has become a model for communities around the country, could be at risk.

Through Baltimore’s TNR program, several thousand cats have been sterilized, vaccinated and returned to their neighborhoods. This common-sense approach is more animal-friendly, cost-effective and reduces the burden on the city’s animal shelters. Over the span of just three years, intake of kittens to the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter was reduced by 39 percent. Why second-guess this kind of success? The city council needs to hear from you!

Politics is not a spectator sport, so please take action today! There are two ways you can help:

1. Send an email directly to your elected officials using the form below.

2. Attend the hearing at 10:05 a.m. Tuesday, September 26, in the Du Burns Council Chamber, 4th Floor, City Hall (100 Holliday Street). 

Thanks! Together, we will Save Them All.


  • Your Municipal Officials
  • Mayor Catherine Pugh

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a Baltimore resident and taxpayer, I am deeply concerned that the city council is now questioning "whether the city's current approach to feral cats should be modified or remain the same."

I urge you to support Baltimore's TNR efforts.

Thank you for your consideration in this important matter.
