A huge wow and THANK YOU to Matt and the staff at PetSmart Bedford Commons for the donation of not one, but two cheques of $1,000 each to support the spay/neuter work of our program. And another thank you for the food donations that will assist our fosters with rescued cats. Visit PetSmart Bedford Commons to help out with the food donations that will be running until the end of January. And while there you can visit our adoptable cats, Thor and Silky. Thank You Matt and PetSmart!
The Spay Day HRM program operates on donations & fundraising. We do not always have funds available to help more cats. Approved applications are placed in a waiting list and you will only be contacted when an appointment can be made for your cat at a clinic. Send your application and we will assist you when we are able. It may take months. There are many many cats in HRM that need help and we receive hundreds of applications. In the mean time, keep your cat safe indoors, and try to prevent pregnancy.
To obtain an application to have your cat spayed or neutered, click on the tab above that says Spay/Neuter Application. Complete the application and send it back, either by email or Canada Post.
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 some weeks it is difficult to keep up, even with just the correspondence and calls. We are a small organization with limited means. We try our best to address the current backlog of applications before we move forward with new requests. When contacting for help with a cat or kittens, please include as much information as possible including your full name, address, telephone number, the age and sex of the cat and as much information on the cat as possible.
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 can afford a fee of under $135 we encourage you to use their clinic as it will be much faster then we are able to help. 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.
