Support Florida Community Cat Bill

Support Florida Community Cat BillUPDATE: We’re disappointed to report that the Community Cat Bill will not move forward in the Florida legislature this year. Although the bill overwhelmingly passed the first committee hearing, it was tabled by subsequent a committee.

Know that this does not affect Trap-Neuter-Return activities in Florida. Trap-Neuter-Return is still—and always has been—completely legal. You can keep caring and advocating for cats exactly as you have been

Thank you to everyone who contacted their State Senator and Representative on this important bill.

Original Issue: The companion bills S.B. 1320/H.B. 1121 would save countless cats’ lives by encouraging communities to implement Trap-Neuter-Return programs. It would also clarify that Trap-Neuter-Return is not abandonment, ensuring that caregivers returning cats after neutering are safe from being charged. Together, these changes will encourage more residents and communities to participate in lifesaving programs for community cats—and keep these healthy but unadoptable animals out of pounds and shelters, where they do not belong.


Take action on this issue

For decades, cats have been routinely rounded up and killed in shelters as fall guys for bird population declines.
