We love Katie here in Arkansas!!
Mary @ Maddie's Fund
Great message for a t-shirt, Katie!
Bobby is bathed in an angelic glow this morning…
It does look amazing doesn't it @Peter!!!
Contagious illnesses such as… FIV, ringworm, etc.? YIKES!
Even worse - URI
URI??? Lock it all down!!!
It’s SO important to track these bills! Thank you all for your tireless efforts!
I wonder how diverse the constituents are who contact their reps. My experience is that those going to public meetings are relatively homogenous and representing their own interezts
Is this available publicly or beyond the T1 shelters?
(OK, maybe not exactly tireless… you’re probably tired, right?)
This is amazing....embarrassed to say not much going on here in Ontario, and just a little bit more Federally....
@Kathy: “Not much going on” isn’t necessarily a bad thing!

@Sarah - so far we have only created it for the states with T1 shelters
Yah @ Peter. Except we have had a bill before the Provincial Legislature since November 2019 to repeal the BSL and it has gone nowhere......there's a pandemic don't you know...
I can at least send that link to Katie so she can add it to the list.
C’mon, Bobby—what’s NOT exciting about legislation?!?!
I totally agree @Peter!!

I look forward to seeing all of you there!
Courtney Hilborn, Executive Administrator Dogs on Deployment
Please drop your questions in the chat for Courtney :-)
No question-just really appreciate this group!
TNR on military bases, please!
Awesome Courtney! Coast Guard retiree here. Glad to hear that this gap is being filled! Probably not something a shelter or rescue would ever think of unless they had some connection to the military.
Peter—preach more about that TNR!
Peter, YES! We have one near us and we constantly get calls. Lots of "not my responsibility".
@Kerri—apparently, it’s a VERY common problem. So many frustrated service members trying their best to look after “base cats."
Sounds like we need a conversation re: TNR on military bases! I nominate @kerri as the lead...
Could the "pest control" funds be used to TNR on bases? Has anyone tried that approach?
I’d LOVE to talk TNR on mil bases!!
I would love to join that conversation!
Please feel free to e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org
I love Joy’s idea of using the funds for lethal removal for TNR!
(Once again, the Cat People hijacked the convo!)
TNR on military bases is a tough one. Sometimes base by base, sometimes at the Pentagon level.
@Danielle—you’re in too!
This is all part of the Great 2021 Cat Takeover.
Count me in on this! Beale AFB is in our area and I know we have some volunteers who stationed there.
(The Pentagon being in your backyard and all, @Danielle.)
Make sure you rope TNR/SNR rock star Cameron Moore in to TNR on Military Bases. She grew up military!
Just signed up to be a boarder. This is such a wonderful resource and I'm so glad I learned about it today!
Thanks Peter. I'll go knock on the door.
Go get ‘em, @Danielle!
That’s really good to know, @Katie!
@Katie is now part of the On-base TNR Working Group!
