This year we have a reason to celebrate - over 500 feral cats received help in less than 5 months through SPCA partner initiatives.
Many more feral cats need help - thousands of cats right now live in feral colonies in Nova Scotia breeding and growing in numbers. Often kittens do not survive either from disease, predators, the weather or starvation.
The most humane solution is Trap-Neuter-Return, which is why in 2016 the SPCA focused on finding a way to help these cats most in need.
The overpopulation problem is so huge that it takes everyone working together to help these vulnerable cats. We are thankful to have worked with many wonderful local rescue groups and community members to achieve this milestone.
Since June over 400 cats have been trapped and spayed/neutered through the HRM TNR project; a partnership with the HRM, local rescue groups, numerous volunteers and the SPCA.
