Demand Justice for Larry: Sign the Petition

Thank you for your supporting our work. This petition is no longer active.

LarryIn January, a police officer in Bloomfield, Nebraska trapped and fatally shot a beloved two-year-old cat named Larry. He then dumped Larry's body behind a shed. This devastating act of cruelty violates the state's animal cruelty laws and city ordinances. Yet the officer was only given a written reprimand.

Thanks to your concern and efforts, officials in Bloomfield, Nebraska have agreed to meet with Alley Cat Allies about Larry. We're hopeful that we can help turn this horrible situation into a positive for the rest of Bloomfield's cats. We look forward to discussing effective humane training for police officers and other city employees and how to adopt lifesaving programs for cats. I hope you'll continue to stand with us in demanding justice for Larry.

Speak out for Larry today. We need as many signatures as possible so please share this page with your friends and family.

Add your voice right now to show that you take anti-cruelty laws seriously and want humane programs for cats.

I take animal cruelty seriously and expect public officials to do the same. All law enforcement officers and civil servants must receive humane education. I also join the vast majority of Americans in supporting other humane programs for cats, including Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) for community cats.

Every state has laws against animal cruelty that clearly make any killing of a cat a criminal offense. Any killing of a cat must be seriously investigated, and the perpetrator must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law—whether that person is a police officer or anyone else.

I will not stand by while cats are killed.
