Return-to-field programs allow shelters to return a stray cat to where it was picked up after neutering/spaying, vaccinating and ear tipping, in place of euthanization.

The majority of animals being killed at animal shelters for non-medical reasons are stray cats because they are deemed unadoptable. If you are in favor return-to-field programs for stray cats, contact your local representatives and your local shelter's board to voice your support. 

If you are not in favor of return-to-field programs, there are still several other ways to help homeless pets.
