The "P" in the REPAIR Act now before the Senate stands for "Protection," yet this bill does the opposite of protecting. It authorizes the killing of free roaming cats and dogs, wild horses, and any other animals unfairly deemed "invasive."
Killing programs, using federal money and under few federal restrictions, would exterminate virtually any feral cat found in the wild. In the past these programs have used painful poisons, body-gripping traps, snares and other cruel procedures to kill animals.
Congress should instead support more humane programs like Trap-Neuter-Return ones that avoid taking animal life. It doesn't have to and shouldn't allow indiscriminate murdering of innocent domestic cats and other animals. Sign the petition to tell your Senator to say "No" to cruel mass killing of feral animals.
