A Step Toward Justice for Larry

In January, a police officer in Bloomfield, Nebraska shot and killed a beloved two-year-old pet cat named Larry. He then dumped Larry’s body behind a shed. The officer was only given a written reprimand. Thanks to your support, Bloomfield’s officials have agreed to meet with Alley Cat Allies about humane education for law enforcement and other programs to prevent this from happening again. We need you to pledge your support to make sure we get justice for Larry. Add your name to the petition »

Alley Cat Allies has been working with local groups and individuals to encourage these cities to save cats’ lives. Read more »
