Support the city council in making cat-friendly changes to the municipal code.

Great news! The Marion City Council is considering making common-sense changes to the city code that will make Marion safer for people and cats. If the proposed amendments pass, caring citizens will more easily be able to carry out lifesaving trap-neuter-vaccinate-return (TNVR) programs.
A community cat program that implements TNVR in Marion is a common-sense, cost-effective solution that controls the community cat population by preventing additional births, instead of trying to house, feed and euthanize more cats. The process is simple: Cats are caught, evaluated by veterinarians, vaccinated, sterilized and returned back into their original habitat. The goal is to keep these cats out of shelters, save taxpayer money and save the lives of thousands of cats every year. 

Please act now to help make these lifesaving measures a reality in Marion. Urge the city council to put cat-friendly improvements up for a vote.
Thank you for taking action for Marion’s cats. Together, we will Save Them All.

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a Marion resident, I'm asking you to allow trap-neuter-vaccinate-return (TNVR) amendments in Marion to move forward for a vote. TNVR is an animal-friendly, cost effective program that will help our community by reducing the outdoor cat population and its current burden on shelters.

Thank you for taking this opportunity to help control the outdoor cat population and reduce the number of cats in shelters by supporting the necessary amendments to the code.
