Feral and Abandoned Cat Society


Programs

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR)

We rely on the community to notify FAACS of locations where feral, stray and abandoned cats live. Our volunteers work with residents to identify caretakers or potential caretakers for homeless cats to ensure the cats have a steady source of food, water, and shelter.

We utilize a coordinated approach to identify, document and monitor feral cat colonies, maintaining location information and veterinary care data.

Our volunteers work with colony caretakers to organize trapping days to humanely capture and transport cats to be spayed or neutered and later returned. And when homeless cats are extremely ill or injured, humane euthanization is provided.

FAACS volunteers fundraise and gather donations to help pay for these veterinary services.

FAACS also supports colony caretakers, when needed, with cat food donations and cat shelters to help ensure homeless cats have the necessities for survival. Donors may purchase cat food online through our Food for Ferals Amazon account:

We do not provide foster or adoption services. However, FAACS encourages fostering and adopting the friendly, tamable cats and kittens we encounter, in cooperation with the local SPCA, rescue groups and private foster volunteers.  

Low-Income Spay-Neuter

FAACS cooperates with the local SPCA to offer cat spay-neuter services to qualifying low-income cat owners. Our volunteers assist cat owners with accessing the SPCA’s program information and transporting cats to and from their spay-neuter veterinary appointment. We also fundraise to pay for these veterinary services, asking pet owners for a donation to help cover some or all of our expenses.

Public Education

FAACS volunteers provide public education through the media, school programs, and other public outreach opportunities on TNR and responsible pet ownership to help prevent pet abandonment.

We also shares ideas, experience, volunteers, and trapping resources with other animal welfare groups, working together to manage the feral and abandoned cat population in Cape Breton.
