OUR MISSION

HTML Code Settings


First and foremost, we plan to bring to justice any and all responsible for, taking part in, or having knowledge of the disappearance of these seven beloved alley cats.  We are committed to pursuing this as long as it takes to have this person(s) apprehended and prosecuted. 


Second, this terrible situation has brought to light weaknesses in animal cruelty investigations, the laws that prevent such acts, and the enforcement of these laws.  To address these, we advocate for:

  1. a required response (on behalf of the police or other authority) to all complaints or reports of animal cruelty;
  2. less stringent evidential requirements in order for authorities to fully investigate all animal cruelty complaints;
  3. a significant increase in the maximum punishments (fines and prison sentences) for these crimes.


Additionally, we advocate for better community outreach (in the form of mailings [in multiple languages], discussion at community board meetings, etc.), informing local residents of animal cruelty laws and the legal consequences of poisoning cats.
