We are not able to rescue any more cats at this time as we are full, no more foster homes available.
If you are feeding an ABANDONED but friendly adoptable cat, please contact one of the shelters and get the cat inside. Bide A While (tel. 902-469-9578) usually has space and the SPCA (902-468-7877) has an in-take waiting list, ask for it. If they stay out too long they are at risk of contracting feline leukemia or FIV. The shelters are no-kill, the cat will get medical care and they have a high rate of adoptions. Rescue groups are overwhelmed right now. Get them inside now instead of waiting for winter, pregnancy, and many months of homelessness. Shelters in our city are not a bad place.
If you are feeding FERAL CATS, and the cats are located within the boundaries of the Halifax municipality, we have a city funded feral TNR project right now. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with all the information including the address and your contact info. The project can lend you a trap, help with trapping or transportation. This funding won’t be available forever so take advantage of it now because it is free for feral cats. The TNR of feral cats also prevents disease as cats tend to fight less, no mating, less kittens being born to misery.
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.
