It does look amazing doesn't it @Peter!!!
Peter Wolf

Contagious illnesses such as… FIV, ringworm, etc.? YIKES!
Sarah Aguilar

Even worse - URI
Peter Wolf

URI??? Lock it all down!!!
Peter Wolf

It’s SO important to track these bills! Thank you all for your tireless efforts!
Staycee Dains
40:51
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
Sarah Aguilar
40:54
Is this available publicly or beyond the T1 shelters?
Peter Wolf
41:15
(OK, maybe not exactly tireless… you’re probably tired, right?)
Kathy Duncan
41:30
This is amazing....embarrassed to say not much going on here in Ontario, and just a little bit more Federally....
Peter Wolf
41:55
@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
Kathy Duncan
42:57
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...
Peter Wolf
43:13
Boo!
Kathy Duncan
43:22
I can at least send that link to Katie so she can add it to the list.

TNR on military bases, please!
Amy Bartholomew
01:11:33
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.
Kerri Burrows
01:15:17
Peter—preach more about that TNR!
Joy Smith
01:15:43
Peter, YES! We have one near us and we constantly get calls. Lots of "not my responsibility".
Peter Wolf
01:16:17
@Kerri—apparently, it’s a VERY common problem. So many frustrated service members trying their best to look after “base cats."
Peter Wolf
01:18:09
Sounds like we need a conversation re: TNR on military bases! I nominate @kerri as the lead...
Joy Smith
01:18:37
Could the "pest control" funds be used to TNR on bases? Has anyone tried that approach?
Kerri Burrows
01:18:39
I’d LOVE to talk TNR on mil bases!!
Monica Frenden
01:18:52
I would love to join that conversation!
Peter Wolf
01:19:18
Please feel free to e-mail me: peterw@bestfriends.org
Peter Wolf
01:20:11
I love Joy’s idea of using the funds for lethal removal for TNR!
Peter Wolf
01:20:27
(Once again, the Cat People hijacked the convo!)
Danielle Bays
01:20:36
TNR on military bases is a tough one. Sometimes base by base, sometimes at the Pentagon level.
Peter Wolf
01:20:53
@Danielle—you’re in too!
Monica Frenden
01:21:04
This is all part of the Great 2021 Cat Takeover.
Joy Smith
01:21:15
Count me in on this! Beale AFB is in our area and I know we have some volunteers who stationed there.
Peter Wolf
01:21:22
(The Pentagon being in your backyard and all, @Danielle.)
Sara Pizano
01:21:24
Make sure you rope TNR/SNR rock star Cameron Moore in to TNR on Military Bases. She grew up military!
Morgan Rivera
01:21:36
Just signed up to be a boarder. This is such a wonderful resource and I'm so glad I learned about it today!
Danielle Bays
01:21:37
Thanks Peter. I'll go knock on the door.
Peter Wolf
01:22:28
Go get ‘em, @Danielle!
Peter Wolf
01:23:34
That’s really good to know, @Katie!
Peter Wolf
01:24:22
@Katie is now part of the On-base TNR Working Group!
