Are Free-Roaming Cats a Problem in your Community?
Tuesday, September 3, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
Are free-roaming cats a
problem in your community?
Don’t worry, we can help!
You are invited to attend a special complimentary presentation by some of the nation’s leading animal welfare experts on a topic discussed frequently – animal control ordinance reform measures. This presentation will share effective and cost-saving measures while establishing effective Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) programs to lower feral cat numbers in our community.
There is an overabundance of community cats in all communities. Community cats are those living outdoors full-time, whether feral or domestic cats released outside. In most communities at least 50% of animals entering shelters are cats and on average three out of every 10 cats leave alive.
This presentation is hosted by the Mayors and Managers Association along with the Humane Society of Greater Dayton and will discuss options for effectively and humanely handling the issue of cat overpopulation. We will showcase how two cities, on different coasts, implemented strategies (San Jose, CA and Jacksonville, FL) to more effectively leverage resources in areas of tight budgets and limited staff through groundbreaking ordinance reform.

Target Zero Institute's (TZI) mission is to end overpopulation in shelters nationwide by working with organizations to get their communities to no kill, or zero.
We identify standout organizations to become TZI Fellows and provide them with extensive support over the course of three years in program design and implementation, fundraising and revenue generation, effective partnership-building, board development, government affairs and fiscal management. The goal is for fellows to create Target Zero plans in their communities and carry them out.
