Our Mobile Spay Neuter clinic is here!
Launched in summer of 2016, the clinic will enable us to address feral cat colonies in rural areas across the province, by spaying /neutering feral cats close to where they live. We hope this will help reduce the cycle of unwanted breeding and the stress that causes on feral cats and on shelters and rescues constantly rescuing kittens from these situations.
The Nova Scotia SPCA believes that successful management of the feral cat population can be done through Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) Population Control Programs. The objective of Trap-Neuter-Return is to gradually eliminate colonies by a process of “aging out.” Feral cats are humanely trapped, neutered, ear tipped and then returned to their colony.
This Mobile Clinic was made possible through generous bequests by the late Dr. Susan Roberts, and Eleanor Dyke. The day to day expenses and operating costs of the mobile clinic comes from fundraising and bequests, donations are always needed to help us continue to operate!
Sponsor a single Feral cat spay/neuter surgery or gather a group and fundraise to bring the Mobile Spay/Neuter clinic to an area in need in your community.

Many are aware there are thousands of homeless cats but it is important that we gather actual data to determine just how big the problem is and where the colonies exist. It is important that we identify the locations of cat colonies and their caretakers from around the Province so we can collaborate with individuals and other cat rescue groups to better work together supporting cats in need.
Please pass this link on to anyone who might be interested in identifying a colony and complete this form for each new colony you wish to identify.
If you have any questions regarding this survey please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 844-835-4798
