Animal Services looking for Pet Adoption Success Stories


Thank you for taking the time to share your adorable pet adoption stories and photos with us. If your photo and story are chosen, Animal Services will contact you in the new year so you can pick up your free 2020 calendar. It is thanks to people like you who extend your hearts and homes to animals in need. Thank you again!

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.

Past Events
