Animal Welfare Bill Idea

Idea: Promote trap, neuter and release to the 10 animal control facilities in Northern and Southern California with the highest kill rates of cats.

Offer aid to those facilities to run these programs for three years. To do 25-40 male and female cats bi-monthly to help curb feline overpopulation.

If the budget is impacted, we could make it where we could do matching funds for counties and cities.

The goal is to reduce the number of felines in our pounds populating the cages so we can reduce future generations populating our animal control facilities.

The plan is to fund the program for 3 years, then get the program reviewed to see how effective it is before it could be renewed for another 3 years.

The idea is a winning idea for many cities already, but some cities and counties need a nudge to do the right thing.

If it works for Rancho Cuccamonga and Oakland, it should work for a cash strapped city such as San Bernardino who would be open to it, or a reluctant county such as San Bernardino who would likely consider it if they had the money.
