Hanover Park, IL passes feral cat management/TNR ordinance

On June 5, 2008 the village board of Hanover Park, IL passed a feral cat management ordinance which we feel will be a step forward for feral cats and their caretakers. This ordinance is very similar to the Cook County feral cat management ordinance that was passed and went into effect late 2007. The ordinance will outline and sanction proper feral colony management, including TNR. As noted in a recent news article, some love it and some hate it. We hope it will help cat lovers and their neighbors to live with more peace and more obvious guidelines about responsible feral cat management through TNR.
