The purpose of the proposed project is the establishment of a "Cat Program" involving the citywide coordination of actions and activities that will accomplish increased spay/neuter of cats, generally reduce the euthanasia of cats in City of Los Angeles ("City") animal shelters, accommodate the maintenance and improved management of cats in outdoor locations in a manner that minimizes their impacts on environmentally sensitive habitats, support members of the public with an interest in addressing nuisance issues relating to cats, and facilitate public and community education on cat-related issues. In addition, the proposed program includes: a minor amendment to Section 5.199 of the Los Angeles Administrative Code regarding the scope of use of the Animal Spay and Neuter Trust Fund; increasing the number of cats that may be kept without a kennel permit to five cats; allowing the feeding of free-roaming cats in colonies; and exempting cat colony operators from cat kennel permit requirements. Cat colonies would not be allowed to Environmentally Sensitive Areas or parks. Mitigation Measures have been included to further reduce potential impacts to a less than significant level.
