Demand Hotel Stop Using Exterminators to Remove Stray Cats

Target: John Rice, Hotel Shangri-La General Manager

Goal: Stop using a pest control company to get rid of local feral cats and urge them to use non-lethal means to manage the population instead.

Homeless cats are being brutally murdered by exterminators. For many years, Taguig Park in Manila was home to a large feral cat population that was much beloved by locals who fed and cared for the homeless animals. That was before the nearby upscale Hotel Shangri-la decided to hire exterminators to “literally dispose of the cats” under the cover of darkness so as not to attract attention. This despicable and illegal act must be condemned.

By hiring a pest control company to remove cats through any means deemed necessary, Hotel Shangri-la is likely in violation of the country’s Animal Welfare Act. Worryingly, hotel management has not provided any comment on the welfare or status of the felines, leading many to believe they have been either killed or abandoned elsewhere. If so, this is not only unthinkably cruel, but will most likely be an ineffective means of control long-term as new stray cats take residence in the park.

There are many non-lethal means of controlling cat populations, including so-called Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs that prevent the formation of new feral colonies. Sign this petition to demand that the exterminators be called away and that this hotel publicly commits to the humane treatment of all stray cats.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Rice,

The many generations of cats that have lived in Taguig Park next to your hotel are part of a beloved and well-tended cat colony. Local residents have fed, named, and interacted with these homeless felines for years, and are heartbroken at their recent disappearance. Given the fact that you have admitted to using a pest control company to “dispose” of these cats by any means necessary, they are right to be concerned that you are permitting these cats to be exterminated or dumped elsewhere.

Treating companion animals, such as cats, like vermin is in violation of the Animal Welfare Act of the Philippines. Not only that, it is an ineffective strategy long-term, as new stray cats will simply move in and take their place. We demand that you stop using exterminators to kill or abandon these innocent animals and instead commit publicly to using non-lethal and compassionate means of control.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    The vile and evil exterminators are the monsters who need to be exterminatored from our planet no the precious and innocent cats.

    These animal torturing monsters must be stopped and brought to Justice for their deliberate torture and cruel deaths of such innocent and helpless sentient beings.

    Absolutely sickening and unforgivable. Sadism and evilness at its worst.

    If I could I would kill everyone of those exterminators including that animal torturing psycho monsterJohn Rice, Hotel Shangri-La General Manager, the bastard who allows these evil exterminators to deliberately torture and murder such precious sentient beings. Death to all these animal torturing monsters including that fucking monster John Rice, Hotel Shangri-La General Manager.

  3. Why don’t u go and start exterminate the ones abusing animals?
    That is a very good idea. Start a massive extermination of animals abusers and in the way take also people with vices, any kind.
