Petition Calling for Trap Neuter Release

To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of New South Wales, this petition brings to the attention of the House: An un-desexed female cat and her offspring can produce 420,000 cats in only seven years and street cats can suffer poor welfare and cause harm to the environment. Community run Trap Neuter Release and Rehome (TNR) programs involve rehoming kittens, and desexing, vaccinating and feeding remaining cats in a street cat colony. These programs help stabilise and reduce cat populations and have shown to be more effective than just killing cats. However, community volunteers running these programs are at risk of breaching laws around abandonment and liberation and therefore cannot access community grants for programs. The undersigned petitioners therefore ask the NSW Parliament to ensure that TNR programs are lawful.
