Resolution endorsing the Orange Beach Animal Care and Control Program (OBACCP) passed

Earlier this week, the Orange Beach City Council and Mayor Tony Kennon unanimously passed a resolution endorsing the Orange Beach Animal Care and Control Program (OBACCP) and the Trap-Neuter-Release program.

The Orange Beach Animal Care and Control Program (OBACCP) commends Mayor Kennon and the Orange Beach City Council for endorsing this proactive, progressive and humane effort. The city’s dedication as committed partners will make Orange Beach a better place to live for our citizens and our cats. Trap-Neuter-Return is the only proven effective method of controlling the otherwise exponential growth in stray and feral cat colonies. 

“This is a monumental step forward in our efforts to effectively and humanely control our community cat population. It will take this continued partnership, dedicated volunteers and our citizens’ willingness to cooperate with this new approach in order to be completely effective.”

- Thomas L. "Tom" Conerly, Animal Control Officer, Orange Beach Police Department

Currently, over 430 local governments in the US have officially embraced Trap, Neuter and Release to successfully manage their community cat populations. Volunteers are important to the success of the program. Please sign up as a volunteer on the OBACCP website.

The OBACCP has raised over $10,000 in donations; contributions and City of Orange Beach start up funds. Contributions will be used toward caring for and improving the lives of our Orange Beach animals. To make a tax-deductible contribution, visit the OBACCP website.
