National Feral Cat Day

National Feral Cat Day is celebrated in October. It will be a day for community cats to shine. It's a way to raise awareness about free-roaming felines and promote trap-neuter-return (TNR), the humane way of reducing outdoor cat populations.

Learn what you can do to shape a better future for these cats. Come down to Animal Services on Saturday, October 19 from noon until 4 pm to learn more about the City of Thunder Bay's TNR program.



Adopting a Barn Cat

Got mice! Adopt a barn cat. Animal Services has a Barn Cat Program for cats that are not suitable for traditional pet adoption.

Contact Animal Services to adopt a barn cat. The adoption fee is $50 which includes spay or neuter, initial vaccinations, microchip and parasite treatment. You can place a barn cat in a barn, warehouse or farm that needs rodent control. The adopter must agree to provide a warm shelter, food, clean water and veterinary care, and must live outside of city limits in a municipality where cats are allowed to run loose.
