Spay/Neuter Voucher Program for Cats

The Municipality of Leamington, in partnership with veterinary hospitals/clinics, is pleased to launch a Cat Spay and Neuter Voucher Program on March 2, 2020. This program is available to residents of the Municipality of Leamington.

In an effort to reduce the number of homeless cats in the Municipality, vouchers will be issued to spay and neuter cats. The Municipality of Leamington will provide vouchers to qualifying residents. Vouchers will be issued on a first come first serve basis.

Vouchers for owned cats are reserved for low-income families. Documentation confirming household income will be required. A maximum of three (3) vouchers per household will be issued where the cats are owned.

For feral cat caregivers, a maximum of three (3) vouchers per household will be issued to Leamington residents, with no income restrictions..

For program details including eligibility criteria, please review the Spay/Neuter Voucher Program for Cats Questions and Answers

 Nuisance Cats 

A property owner or occupier in urban Leamington is permitted to trap any cat found trespassing on its property in a humane, portable container that can be provided to you by the Municipality upon request. The cat must be kept safe by providing adequate food, water, and shelter appropriate to the weather conditions for the cat. 

The Municipality of Leamington has traps available for use. A $50.00 deposit is required and the cages may be rented for $5.00 per day.

 How to Humanely Deter Cats in Your Neighbourhood

Community cats, also called feral cats, are members of the domestic cat species just like pet cats but are usually not socialized to people and therefore are not adoptable.

Like all animals, feral cats make their home where they find shelter and food, often in close proximity to people. We understand that not everyone enjoys having cats in their yards and these simple tips may help you divert feral cats away from certain areas.
