Webinar – 5/21/24 – Community Cats 2024: Saving Free-Roaming Cats’ Lives in the Most Humane Way Possible – CalAnimals

May 21 @ 10:00 AM - 11:15 AM PDT

Community Cats 2024 CalAnimals webinar

One of the most important work of shelters these days is serving local communities by engaging in life-saving, humane – and legal — community cat programs (CCP) for outdoor-living cats. If you want to know about the issues, and how to do CCPs right, join us for a walk through the challenges, particulars, and legalities of community cats in California, prepared by the San Francisco SPCA’s Shelter PALS (Shelter Policy and Legal Services) program.

When it comes to community cats in California, the sheltering industry is much stronger together. Standardizing CCP operations across the state will help people, animals, and local governments, so that we can lift up communities who do not yet have them, avoid problems in communities who already have CCPs, and best position the movement to defend CCPs against any challenges.

In this 75-minute webinar, attendees will learn the factual and legal basics of community cats, how to support those programs with local ordinances, and also how to sign up your shelter for free legal support to set up or shore up the CCP in your own community.

Presenter: Bruce Wagman, Attorney, SFSPCA Shelter PALS
