Community Cats

Under current county law, if you take a stray cat to animal control, and it is deemed feral, it will be euthanized. Some communities have community cats which are fed, cared for, and spayed or neutered so they cannot reproduce. If a cat in your community has the tip of its ear snipped, it means that it has been spayed or neutered. Even still, animal control under current county code must euthanize the cat if it is deemed feral.

I have a bill in that allows the cats to remain in the communities and even offers communities the opportunity to take the cat back if they have it spayed or neutered at the cost of the members of the community caring for the cat. The cats being released back will also be given a rabies shot.


1. They keep rat and mice populations under control without creating a misbalance in the ecosystem.

2. They reduce the spread of disease.

3. An established, stable, sterilized, and vaccinated colony of feral cats will deter other stray and feral cats from moving into the area. This decreases the risk that residents will encounter an unvaccinated cat, and will virtually eliminate problem behaviors like fighting, spraying, and yowling. Cats vaccinated against rabies also create a buffer zone between wildlife and the public, which greatly reduces the risk of contracting the disease.

Come on out and support my bill for the love of the chum chums!…/bills-and-resolutions/PROPOSED%20…

Who we are

We are a nationally recognized Nonprofit Charity, 501(c)(3), focused on pets and community animals.
47-1824249 Cause for Paws Cares Inc.

What we do

We interact and work with the City of Bowie Animal Control, Prince George's Animal Management, veterinarians and animal hospitals, animal adoption and shelter centers and local residents for animal wellness, protection, rescue, and adoption.

We do compassion.

Why join us

The cost to taxpayers is staggering.  By helping us, the taxpayer burden is reduced.

Education on community animals is virtually non-existent. Our education and outreach programs impact lives - both animal and human.

Seniors, families with reduced and little income, neighbors and friends, are surprisingly not aware of  help close-by or feel shame in asking.  Our assistance is deeply passionate and far reaching.

Help Us Care for the Animals!
