Durham Fights Cat Overpopulation

By July 31, 2012Uncategorized

Cat overpopulation is a serious issue that affects Durham Region.  It was announced today that forty-two veterinary clinics in the area have volunteered to work together with the Durham Humane Society to combat this problem.  This is an exciting development and we are happy to be a part of such a great cause.  This initiative, called The Durham Region Spay/Neuter Voucher Program, will provide spay and neuter vouchers for individuals on limited income who meet certain criteria.  It is our hope that over time this will help reduce the number of stray and homeless cats and the burden on the Humane Society of Durham Region.  Please read the press release at the link below:
