Trap, Neuter, and Return Programs. Permits a pound, animal shelter, or humane society to operate a program of trapping, vaccinating, and sterilizing feral cats before returning them to the sites where they were trapped. The bill excludes a person who participates in such a program from the definition of "owner" regarding custody of the subject cats. Current law makes an owner's abandonment of an animal a misdemeanor.
