Toronto Animal Services recognizing International Feral Cat Awareness Day
The City of Toronto's Animal Services is working hard to reduce the feral cat population in the city. Animal Services has been running its spay-neuter clinic adjacent to its east shelter for just over a year, where more than 500 cats have been sterilized. At this clinic, the spaying and neutering of Toronto's feral cats takes place, as well as the spaying and neutering of Toronto Animal Service's adoption animals that are waiting to be placed in life-long, loving homes.

In recognition of International Feral Cat Awareness Day, Toronto Animal Services is more than doubling the number of feral cats being spayed or neutered this week.

Today, by appointment only, media are invited to visit and see a clinic in operation at the Toronto Animal Services East Spay-Neuter Clinic.

Date: Thursday, October 13
Time: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (appointments required)
Location: 821 Progress Ave., Scarborough

The public is invited to attend an event that will be held Sunday, October 16 at the Toronto Humane Society, 11 River St., from noon to 5 p.m. Visitors can learn to socialize feral kittens, build an over-wintering shelter, care for a cat colony, and trap cats for spaying/neutering. There will also be demonstrations, discussions, videos and the opportunity to observe the clinic in operation.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
