The Spay Day HRM program is not accepting any new applications for spay/neuter or TNR until 2014. We are currently backed up with hundreds of applications and have very limited funds.
The need in this city for help with cats is great. I encourage you to discuss this dire situation with your city councillor. Their addresses and phone numbers can be found here: http://www.halifax.ca/councillors/index.html
The SPCA has a new low-cost spay and neuter clinic at the shelter in Burnside. If you are on assistance or have a low income, you would qualify to have your cats spayed or neutered there for a small fee. We can help to drive the cat to the appointment and/or provide use of a cat carrier if you have an appointment at the SPCA clinic, or any other clinic.
Requests are coming in for help with kittens, abandoned and starving cats, cats in need of rescue and large colonies of cats. We receive dozens of requests daily and can no longer keep up, even with the correspondence. We are a small organization with limited means. It is important to address the current backlog of applications before we move forward with any new requests.
Thanks for your support and understanding.
