Legislative policy

TICA will OPPOSE legislation regarding licensing, limits, mandatory microchip programs, mandatory data kept by animal control, and taxation on pets or pet products. TICA will generally SUPPORT efforts to improve shelter conditions, voluntary microchip programs, trap-(test)-neuter-(vaccinate)-release programs, and fund raising programs such as vanity license plates which designate part of the income for animal welfare and educational programs.

NOTE: The items in parenthesis are not done in all communities that have feral programs

TICA's Legislative Committee web page provides guidance to cat fanciers on opposing legislation in their area.
