Each year we have made a targeted event for World Spay Day. Last year we did many cats in the area of Uniacke Square. This year our World Spay Day event will target the cats of Mulgrave Park. All units in Mulgrave Park have been delivered our flyer and registration form. We are looking for volunteer drivers who will help transport the cats to and from their clinic appointment. To be a driver you would need to (a) have a vehicle, (b) be available on Tues.Feb 23rd, (c) be able to pick up cats very early in the morning 7am and take them back to their home on the same day, around 5:00 pm. If you are available to drive cats on that day, please send an email felix@eastlink.ca with your contact information. Where is Mulgrave Park? It is an area of Metro Housiing framed by Duffus Street, Barrington Street, Richmond Street, Albert Street. It has limited drive-up access from Jarvis Lane and Connor Lane. Our ultimate goal is that every cat living in this area will be spayed or neutered and not able to reproduce. How many cats are we targeting? All of them. We will do all the cats that register.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

KrissyAs 2015 draws to a close, we share our success with our supporters. In 2015 we spayed & neutered 394 cats. We adopted out and rehomed 201 cats, of which 103 were kittens. That is 103 kittens that were not given away for free and allowed to reproduce or get tossed away when they grew in to an adult. Many of the kittens were spay/neutered this year and the remaining kittens will be done in 2016 when they turn six months old. Since we started in 2011 we have spayed & neutered a grand total of 1,432 cats. We helped many low income famlies to have their cats fixed and created more community relationships. All this was possible with the help of our volunteers; drivers, foster homes, adopters, donors, fundraisers. Special thanks to all the veterinary clinics and their staff who take such great care of the cats we bring them. Thanks to our adoption partner, PetSmart Bedford because without them we would not be able to adopt out so many adult cats. Thank you to Royal Canin, our adoption & pet food partner. Your support provides valuable nutrition for all our rescued cats & especially our kittens. Our vet bills alone were were over $90,000 and that is a lot of fundraising events, donations, and adoption fees. 2015 proves that Spay Day supporters & volunteers are once again the absolute best! Happy New Year everyone!!

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.
