Stop Australia Shooting Cats and Kittens

The Australian state of Victoria has passed a devastating new declaration allowing government agents to shoot all free-living cats and kittens. As if this cruel and heartless move weren't bad enough, animal abusing hunters and other recreational shooters are likely lobbying to shoot cats legally. Act now to get Australia’s cats and kittens out of the firing line!

Shooting feral cats and kittens as a way to control their numbers isn't just cruel, according to the Australian Veterinary Association, it's also costly and ineffective.

There is a humane alternative — trap-neuter-return (TNR) programs. TNR programs have been shown time and time again to effectively and humanely reduce feral cat numbers.

Help us end the senseless killing of feral cats and kittens in Victoria. Please join us in asking Victoria's Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, the Honorable Lily D’Ambrosio, to make it illegal for anyone to shoot cats and kittens in Victoria and instead adopt a humane method for controlling cat numbers through trap-neuter-return programs.
