Community Cat Image Legislative Alert

Things are looking up for cats in Belleville and St. Clair County, and it’s time for O’Fallon to follow suit. The St. Clair County Board passed a no kill resolution and a progressive trap-neuter-vaccinate-return program for community cats, as did Belleville. But tragically, O’Fallon officials have refused to do the same to save O’Fallon cats. 

Trap-neuter-vaccinate-return (TNVR) is a common-sense, cost-effective solution for controlling the outdoor cat population by preventing additional births, rather than trying to house, feed and euthanize more cats. The process is simple: Cats are caught, evaluated by veterinarians, vaccinated, sterilized and returned to 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. 

TNVR just makes sense. Yet, the O’Fallon Police Department opposes it. Please contact O’Fallon’s mayor and city council members to voice your support for no-kill and TNVR. The lives of O’Fallon’s cats depend on your action.

Thank you for your action! Together, we will Save Them All.

Dear [Decision Maker],

As an O'Fallon resident, I am appalled that O'Fallon has yet to adopt a trap-neuter-vaccinate-return (TNVR) policy for community cats. 
 
Taxpayers deserve a program that is animal-friendly and cost-effective, and that will reduce the burden and bureaucracy placed on local animal shelters. Veterinarian-approved TNVR programs fulfill our commitment to prioritizing the health and safety of residents.



TNVR just makes sense. It's a veterinarian-proved, animal-friendly alternative that preserves, protects and promotes the health and wellness of residents. Why is O'Fallon supporting an outdated, inhumane "catch-and-kill" program that depletes taxpayer funds and has never worked? Please pass a TNVR policy. 
 
Thank you for your consideration.

Thank you,
