The Prince Rupert SPCA is undertaking a trap-neuter-release program for feral cats in the city and is seeking volunteers to help administer the program.

The TNR program is sustained entirely by small grants and donations from the public. It costs roughly $1,000 to spay and neuter a small colony of community cats, and there may be up to 30 colonies within the city.

“To date, the branch has successfully spayed and neutered 27 cats with the help of local volunteers,” says Jamey Morris, Prince Rupert BC SPCA branch manager.

“We rely heavily on the financial support and involvement of local residents and business that truly care about the communities of cats in their neighborhoods.”

Morris is currently collecting information about additional colonies in the city that need to be fixed and is requesting that anyone who wants to be involved to contact her at the Prince Rupert SPCA shelter at 250-624-2859.
