Ask Galveston, TX to please OVERTURN law that fines those who feed strays!

Galveston, TX is currently experiencing a high number of stray cats. City Council has issued new rules, one of those being, fining anyone who feeds stray cats or dogs.

We found out that the city does indeed have a Trap-Neuter-Release program in place, which should be put more into action rather than the new rule that homeowners can be fined by placing out food for stray animals, because such acts lead to an "unattractive" island. Violating the law can result in up to a $200 fine.

I'm in no way attacking the Galveston City Council, but I would appreciate if they took our more humane solutions into consideration, and also motivate those who are feeding strays to put TNR into action to overall solve the issue of stray overpopulation!!! 

TNR programs are the humane way to deal with stray animals -- rules allowing euthanization and fines for people who feed the animals are way too excessive!

Galveston should focus on its TNR program, and remove fines for feeding strays, as well as the ordinance that allows property owners to demand cats be euthanized.

Please sign my petition to ask Galveston to please repeal these rules and focus on TNR programs instead fining those who feed the animals!
