Venue: Minnesota State Bar Association  Minneapolis, MN United States  Get Directions
Total Price: $20.00


Cities across the country have handled the unique issues presented by un-owned community cats in differing ways ranging from euthanization to trap-neuter-return.  This panel discussion will focus on the City of Minneapolis’ Trap-Neuter-Return ordinance targeting feral cat colonies within the city.  We will discuss the specific problems facing the City of Minneapolis prior to the ordinance and the efforts made to pass the ordinance. We will also outline the ordinance’s structure and requirements as well as its effects on Minneapolis’ citizens and feral cats one year after passage. 

Lunch and registration will begin at 11:30 and the program will start at noon.
