Offers residents resources and support for humane solution
BETHESDA, MD—Alley Cat Allies, the only national advocacy organization dedicated to the protection and humane treatment of cats, today urged residents at the Aloe Village Senior Complex and officials in Galloway Township, N.J. to adopt proven and humane solutions in lieu of catching kittens and cats and turning them into the shelter where six kittens from the Complex have already been killed.
“Six newborn kittens have already been ripped from their mothers and ‘euthanized’ at the shelter,” said Becky Robinson, co-founder and president of Alley Cat Allies. “This cruel approach is not humane and it is not a solution.”

Alley Cat Allies is ready to offer support with high-volume spay/neuter, and assistance with the adoption of kittens and friendly cats and the implementation of a Trap-Neuter-Return program. Information and education on how to use deterrents to keep the cats out of gardens and away from homes will also be provided. Alley Cat Allies has provided this type of assistance to communities all across the country for two decades.

As part of a Trap-Neuter-Return program, feral cats are humanely trapped and taken to a veterinarian to be neutered and vaccinated. After recovery, the cats are returned to their home—their colony—outdoors. Socialized cats and kittens are removed from the grounds and adopted into good homes.
Alley Cat Allies staff will be on site today at the Aloe Village Senior Complex to assess the situation and provide information and help to residents. Interview opportunities available.
Residents who are interested in helping with our efforts should contact Alley Cat Allies at or call 240-482-1992.
