Coming together to help community cats this winter

Ensuring animals are safe and comfortable is at the core of what we do at the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society. This includes our feral cat friends! Thanks to our community partners, we were able to build hundreds of feral cat shelters to help cats across Ontario.  

As a direct result of animals left unaltered and abandoned, cat overpopulation is an issue across Ontario and has resulted in a staggering number of feral cats, also known as community cats. A trap, neuter, vaccinate, return approach is the only economically viable and truly humane approach to feral cat population stabilization. These cats often spend the winter months trying to survive the outdoors in extreme weather.    

The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society developed feral cat support programs, which includes feral cat shelters, to assist feral cat caretakers in managing their colonies. With these incredibly important shelters, we can ensure that these cats stay safe and warm during the cold winter months. 

In 2023, our goal was to surpass the number of shelters built last year, and we are so excited to announce that we successfully constructed over 200 shelters for cats in need! Achieving this milestone required the collective effort of dedicated staff and corporate volunteers coming together to help animals. 

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the teams at Honda Canada, Under Armour, Liberty Mutual and Desjardins for their incredible support and hard work in helping us build these feral cat shelters. It’s through the collaborative effort and compassion of the community that we can aid animals in need across Ontario!
