Good Afternoon Galveston County Community Cat Supporters,
As some of you may or may not know, although 8 cities in Galveston County work to divert community cats out of the shelter and through our program or other TNR programs in the county, Texas City Animal Control Officers are still required to bring in community cats to the Galveston County Animal Shelter. This has led to Texas City cats being euthanized at 10x the rate of any other city in the county. Even ear-tipped cats are being euthanized instead of being released to their territory of origin.
Lifeline has been working for quite some time to change this, and we are VERY excited to see some real progress. However, we could use your support!
This Wednesday, January 18th, Lifeline will be pitching a 6-Month Return-To-Field Pilot Program for Texas City cats to the Texas City Commissioners Court. Upon their approval of this program, we hope to start saving these cats as early as the beginning of February.
We would love to see you in person to show your support at the city commission meeting which will be held Wednesday, January 18th, beginning at 5pm. The meeting is held at City Hall (1801 9th Avenue North, Texas City, TX 77592) in the Kenneth T. Nunn Council Room.
I’m also looking for 2 Texas City residents who have benefited from our Community Cat Program to share their stories with the city commission, as needed. If this is something you think you could do, please let me know.
We appreciate your support! This program will help us take another step closer to being a “No-Kill County.”
Thanks for your time & support!
