Community Cat Package

The Windsor/Essex County Humane Society spay neuter clinic is actively assisting individuals and groups working on TNR programs. As similar clinics in other areas have done, we offer walk-in appointments for feral cat caregivers because we understand the uncertainties involved with trapping free-roaming cats. Anyone is allowed to bring in one free-roaming/feral cat in a trap a day without an appointment.

Walk-in community cats are only accepted until 9am; there is a limit of one per person a day. Feral cat walk-ins are only accepted on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays. Caregivers are asked to bring the feral cat in to the clinic in a live trap as this is the safest way for our staff to handle them with the least stress to the cat.  Walk-ins will only be able to have surgery if time permits; we do our best to complete them that day but depending on booked surgery volume and the number of walk-ins we may not be able to complete all of them.  All community cats brought in for surgery will be eligible for (upon request) a free community cat package.  The package includes a standard ear tip, microchip, and FVRCP vaccine.  We appreciate your understanding that this package is intended for community cats who will be released back to their outdoor homes. Respecting this requirement helps us ensure that this program is able to continue.

If you’re planning to fix a number of cats, please ask for a Frequent Fixer Card.  With this card you will receive a stamp for each cat you have spayed or neutered.  Once you have fixed 9 cats, the 10th surgery is free!

Please remember that community cats must arrive in a live trap.  Traps may be borrowed from the Humane Society (limited quantities are available) for no charge, although a deposit of $60 is required.  Have a trap shy cat?  Check out these tips from HSUS – https://www.animalsheltering.org/magazine/articles/game-changers.
