Nova Scotia experiencing cat overpopulation crisis

The Nova Scotia SPCA is pleading for assistance from communities across the province to either adopt or donate as it suffers higher than normal intake levels and capacity issues. 

A recent internal survey found the Nova Scotia network of SPCA branches has been forced to wait list more than 1,000 cats who are not able to be accommodated at this time. This number is up nearly 25% from the same time last year. 

As the Nova Scotia SPCA is a no-kill organization, adoption, fostering and monetary donations are primary means of dealing with over-capacity issues. In response, shelters across the province are offering discounts on adoption fees and the Provincial Animal Shelter has many cats up for adoption that have had their fees waived completely.
