Late last month, in a horrific incident of animal cruelty, 21 cats and other animals were found dead and stacked in an alley in South Bend, Ind. A pet cat named Tiger—pictured here sleeping in his home—had been missing for months, and his owner identified him with the other animals. Thanks to a generous donor, we’ve doubled our reward—now totaling $1,500—for information leading to an arrest. And thanks to multiple tips from citizens, police have identified a person of interest.

Alley Cat Allies has teamed up with national and Nebraska groups to call for an investigation into the case of a Bloomfield, Neb. police officer who shot and killed Larry, a pet cat, in January. Alley Cat Allies, Best Friends Animal Society, Nebraska Rescue Council, and The Cat House co-signed letters to the Knox County Attorney General, Nebraska Attorney General, and the state patrol. Reports of this cruel act created a frenzy on social media, and more than 30,000 people signed our online petition demanding justice for Larry. Find out more about our call for justice »

TNR Success at New Jersey Prison

Alley Cat Allies recently joined local groups in New Jersey to carry out Trap-Neuter-Return at Bayside State Prison. Late last year, we helped save a colony of cats living at the prison and helped protect its long-standing TNR program. On March 12, low-risk inmates and guards humanely trapped the cats, and Alley Cat Allies staff brought them to a mobile clinic where they were neutered, vaccinated, and eartipped before being returned to their outdoor homes.
