The Marion County Commission highlighted the success of its partnership with Cat Alliance from Tips to Tails at the Dec. 5 meeting, thanking the alliance of animal rescue organizations for their contributions.

The organizations include the Humane Society of Marion County, Marion County Animal Services, Quality of Life Rehab and Foster, Sheltering Hands and the Voices of Change Animal League. They all work to rescue animals in addition to spaying, neutering and releasing animals to control the population and preserve animal lives.

“We are so proud to have people in our community who are so dedicated to helping the welfare of our animals,” County Commission Chair Michelle Stone said. “The work these organizations do is immeasurable.”

CATT’s work also helps to reduce the strain on Marion County’s animal shelter. Sheltering Hands alone successfully spayed or neutered 910 cats in 2023.
