Tell Your Legislators to Let Counties Choose to Save Cats' Lives
Dear Cat Advocate,
It would be great if communities used their funds to save cats’ lives. But first, they need to be allowed to do that. An Illinois bill would give counties the option to fund lifesaving programs for cats. We need you to voice your support to make it happen!
Ask your legislators to give counties the option to save cats’ lives—support SB 641-Amendment 1!
The Illinois Senate and Agriculture Committee is considering Senate Bill 641-Amendment 1. Under this bill, if counties put their money from dog and cat registration fees into a county animal population control fund, they can then use the money for lifesaving Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs.
Community cats are usually not adoptable, so shelters are a death sentence for them. In fact, 70 percent of cats are killed in shelters. TNR saves cats’ lives by getting them out of shelters and back to their outdoor homes.
Support TNR in Illinois! Tell your legislators to support SB 641-Amendment 1.

P.S. Please share this with your friends and family in Illinois. We need as many voices as possible if we want this bill to pass!
