  • En bref

Starting Thursday, August 1, 2019, the Town of Mount Royal will offer a program to trap, neuter, release and maintain stray cats on its territory. The SPCA Montréal is responsible for the program, in collaboration with our Public Security Department.

Program outline

  • The objective of this initiative is to limit the proliferation of stray cats on the territory.
  • Residents who notice the presence of stray cats (i.e. without a known guardian, a license or a collar, and sick or visibly ill) can participate in the program for free.
  • Participants will be provided with a cage and detailed instructions for its use.
  • In the event of capture, participants must transport the stray cat to the SPCA, where the animal will be neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, eartipped or euthanized, depending on its condition.
  • If the cat is rescued, the participant commits to bring the cat home for a period of time, possibly to release it into the wild.
  • If he catches anything other than a stray cat, a participant is required to release the animal immediately.

How to participate

It is mandatory to visit our Public Security counter during office hours to fill out a program registration form. This form is not available online.

Once the form has been filled out and duly authorized by a Public Security officer, participants must go to the SPCA to obtain their cage and learn the detailed terms and conditions of the program.

Additional Information

The SPCA is responsible for informing potential participants about this program. The mandate of Mount Royal’s Public Security Dept. is limited to receiving and authorizing registration forms.
