The Windsor/ Essex County Humane Society is offering their first-ever spay-neuter promotion-focused exclusively on barn or farm cats.

While the WECHS Veterinary Clinic has long offered services for feral, or “community” cats, many people with barn cats don’t think of them that way. Clinic procedures that work for people and groups doing TNR (trap-neuter-return) don’t necessarily work for barn cats. But offspring of barn cats are frequently brought to the Humane Society as stray kittens in need of homes.

On Sunday, September 20th, the Humane Society will be offering discounted spay/neuter appointments for barn cats only. In addition to their spay/neuter, cats will be provided with FVRCP and rabies vaccines, treated for internal and external parasites, microchipped, and ear tipped (to identify them as altered) – all for the discounted fee of only $20 per cat.

Barn cat is defined as “living solely outdoors, in a barn or farm property, and having an owner or caregiver”. This event is for barn cats meeting that definition only. To book appointments for your barn cats, you can call 519-966-1118.
