Activists Uniting For The Benefit of Animals

Update from Alley Cat Allies who broke story of Audubon recommending citizens poison cats

Great work for stray cats!

On Friday, we broke the story of a National Audubon Society editor-at-large who took to the Orlando Sentinel, a major metropolitan newspaper, to advocate that citizens get rid of cats by poisoning them with a common over-the-counter medication.

Together, we sent an incredible 30,000 emails directly to Audubon CEO David Yarnold and Chairman B. Holt Thrasher. Because of your response, the Audubon Society suspended the author, Ted Williams, from his position over the weekend.

This is a huge win and I am proud of our response – of your response – but our work’s not done yet. Extremist, anti-cat attacks are on the rise following the Smithsonian’s junk science cat “study.” To respond just as aggressively the next time cats are under fire, we rely on your continued support. Will you help us now to continue to show the strength of our movement?

Click here to donate $5 or more to Alley Cat Allies so that we can continue to be the leading national voice for defending cats.

Thank you for being such a reliable, dedicated ally for cats.

Gratefully,

Becky Robinson
President
Alley Cat Allies
