Cancel the kill - Protect Stockton Breakwall cats

Craig Carmody, CEO The Port of Newcastle

Cancel-the-kill-02

The Stockton Breakwall cats are still at risk - the Port of Newcastle will not guarantee their safety.

On the night of the 17th December under the cover of darkness The Port of Newcastle sent a contract killer to slaughter the colony of Stockton Breakwall cats. Cats were shot,  killed and maimed.

We need to act now and tell CEO, Craig Carmody that the community want the remaining cats protected.

The Port of Newcastle must cancel any plans they have to kill the cats.

The cats were loved and cared for by the Stray Cats’ Project. Over 80% were desexed and microchipped, they had names, personalities and relationships with their human guardians. Every day dedicated members of The Stray Cats Project came to feed, care for, and love the cats.  

On the morning of Friday the 18th December carers were met with carnage and heartbreak as they saw cats that had been shot in the face, hobbling on broken legs and cats that had simply disappeared - cats that are now presumed dead.  These dedicated carers are now distraught and traumatised.

Please act now and sign and share this petition.


To: Craig Carmody, CEO The Port of Newcastle
From: [Your Name]

I am horrified by the cruelty and suffering inflicted on the Stockton Breakwall cats by the Port of Newcastle.

The Community does not accept your actions and we demand justice for the cats that have been killed and maimed. The remaining cats must be protected.

The cats were loved and cared for by the Stray Cats Project. Two years ago when The Stray Cats Project started caring for the cats there were over 100 cats on the Breakwall. On the night of your cull there were 40 cats as part of the colony and 36 of those were desexed and microchipped.

The cats had names, personalities and relationships with their human guardians. Every day dedicated members of The Stray Cats Project carers came to feed, care for and love the cats.

Carers came to feed the cats on Friday morning and were met with carnage and heartbreak as they saw cats that had been shot in the face, hobbling on broken legs and cats that had disappeared - cats that are now presumed dead. These dedicated carers are now distraught and traumatised.

The Port of Newcastle must cancel any plans they have to kill the cats and guarantee their safety.
