If the council considers the feral cat issue again, DeHaven said she hopes it will “involve the fantastic animal advocacy groups working in Las Cruces, including the Coalition for Pets and People, which is bringing together many voices. These groups and individuals are working with community cat caretakers, educating the community, and helping connect resources with those who need it. They understand that to reduce the number of community cats living on the streets, and the number of cats dying in the shelter, the focus needs to be on enabling as much TNR as possible,” she said.

My understanding from the shelter reports, animal advocate groups, and animal control, is that the problem, measured by the intake and euthanasia of feral cats, has been persistent for many years,” she said.
