Stand Up to Animal Cruelty

Stand Up to Animal Cruelty

Twenty-five cats were found brutally killed, many in plastic bags hanging from a tree, in Yonkers, New York late last month. Alley Cat Allies has been working with local groups and individuals to build a coalition designed to encourage the ongoing cruelty investigation, as well as develop new and expanded programs for cats in the community. We are holding a Town Hall meeting Thursday, May 15, that is open to the public, to share updates on the investigation. City Council members are scheduled to speak, as well as representatives from the Mayor’s office, District Attorney’s office and the County Commissioner’s office. Learn more about our work in Yonkers, New York.

Recognizing Good Cops who Serve and Protect Cats

Recognizing Good Cops who Protect Cats

Many media stories involving police officers and animals are bad news, unfortunately. For example, in January an officer in Bloomfield, Nebraska shot and killed a beloved pet cat named Larry. But there are plenty of cops who take saving animals and animal protection very seriously. Alley Cat Allies is taking a moment to recognize and thank those officers who, whether on-duty or off-duty, are too often unsung heroes in the movement to protect and improve the lives of cats. In our recent Care2 article, we profiled four police officers who all have remarkable stories of going above and beyond the duties of their jobs to protect the lives of animals in their communities. Click here to learn how these good cops became heroes for cats.
