**** NS SPCA Release
Fixing one stray or feral cat can prevent as many as 180 kittens from being born. 🐱 Halifax Regional Municipality in collaboration with Spay Day Nova Scotia and the Nova Scotia SPCA have been working to improve lives and stop unwanted litters over the last four years.
Through TNR, young kittens and friendly cats are taken to SPCA shelters where they will be cared for until they’re ready to find a forever home. Feral cats, or wild cats, are much different. What would cause your cuddly pet cat to purr would cause them stress. 🐾 This is because they were born and have spent most of their lives outside with little to no human interaction. Feral cats are much happier outside once they are humanely trapped, spayed/neutered, ear-tipped and returned to their local colony.
We are so thankful to the amazing team and volunteers who spend their evenings and weekends dedicated to TNR. Because of their hard work, less kittens are born into harsh conditions where they are at risk of food scarcity, disease and predators. Feral cats can live happy, healthy lives no longer in constant distress.
This year, more than ever, we need YOU to let us know about any cat colonies in your area. Our TNR services are FREE for you!
