CA Residents: Speak Up to Protect Cats Today!
Urge Department of Corrections officials to allow for care of prison cats
--this is ongoing -- no deadline
-- verified with Best Friends Animal Society
Last summer, due in part to an overwhelming response to a Best Friends Action Alert, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation officials lifted a ban on feeding the dozens of cats living at the agency's prison facility in Norco, California. Despite repeated requests from Best Friends, however, officials have failed to develop an adequate feeding plan, and continue to ignore reports of cats in poor health.
This lack of action jeopardizes the lives of the facility's cats, and betrays the trust of the compassionate inmates and staff who, with donated food and supplies, have been caring for them for years.
Please take a moment to reach out to Secretary of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation Dr. Jeffrey A. Beard, asking that he implement an appropriate care plan, including a rigorous spay/neuter program similar to those used successfully at some of the more progressive prisons around the country.

Please take the time to help get the word out on this very important matter for the cats at a California State Prison. Our rescue group is helping with this project since we started the Program at Avenal State Prison, Corcoran State Prison and Coalinga State Prison. Thank you.
