The City of Toronto’s Animal Services invites you to celebrate International Feral Cat Day – and meet some of the partners Animal Services works with to address the feral cat situation in Toronto:

Here is a list of the activities:

  • Observe staff veterinarians spaying/neutering cats at the Spay-Neuter Clinic from 2 to 4 p.m.
    • Staff are expected to spay and neuter as many as 50 feral cats
  • Tour the East Shelter and the Spay-Neuter Clinic – where about 750 feral cats have been spayed or neutered since the clinic opened in 2010
  • Watch participants building winter shelters for feral cats
  • Visit the Animal Services Chip Truck from 4 to 6 p.m. and buy cat and dog licences and microchips for only $20 for cats and $30 for dogs
    • Current City of Toronto licensees can get a microchip for $5
  • Hear about the Toronto Feral Cat Trap Neuter Return Coalition
    • It’s a city-wide collaborative effort to decrease the feral cat populations, improve the welfare of street cats and decrease animal shelter euthanasia rates by strategically sterilizing colonies and communities of feral cats in Toronto
