Updated—February 3, 2020:

Great news! HB 1727 passed in the Virginia House Agriculture Subcommittee! But we’re not done yet. Now this important bill goes before the full Agriculture Committee. If it passes there, it will be heard by the full House.

The Agriculture Committee is meeting on Wednesday, February 5, so please act by February 4. Tell your legislators that you support HB 1727 to save more cats’ lives!

Original Message:

The Virginia House Agriculture Subcommittee is considering House Bill 1727, which affirms that Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) for community cats is legal throughout Virginia.

By passing this bill, we will pave the way for lifesaving TNR programs to take hold in every community in the state.

Many cities and towns in Virginia have been doing TNR for years. However, some local officials falsely believe TNR programs are illegal. We need to take action now and pass HB 1727 so every Virginia community knows that TNR is the lawful approach to community cats.

We can save the lives of more cats if we act now. Please ask your delegate to vote YES on HB 1727.
