Maryland Residents: Urge Your Senators to Support a Bill that Protects Maryland’s Caregivers
We are lucky there are so many Good Samaritans who spend their time, money and energy caring for stray and feral cats. These compassionate people form a cornerstone of animal care in our communities by caring for cats for whom they are not responsible. In some communities, caring for cats is discouraged—or even criminalized.
A bill has been introduced in Maryland that would support caregivers and protect their right to provide life-sustaining care for cats. The bill is up for a hearing this Wednesday, and we are are asking Maryland residents to contact their Senators and ask him or her to support MD SB 1010.
Providing spay/neuter surgeries and other care to stray and feral cats benefits the whole community. These efforts should not be prohibited or criminalized.
