Shelters partnering to prevent unwanted kittens

MIDDLEBURY — Homeward Bound, Addison County’s Humane Society, the Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) and Community Cats Podcast have partnered up for a cat Neuter-A-Thon during the month of April.

All three organizations share a goal of reducing the number of unwanted kittens that will be born between April and October of this year. In 2022, Homeward Bound and RCHS saw a total of 588 community kittens enter their respective shelters.

To get ahead of this annual influx, prevent unnecessary suffering, and free up resources for other life-saving initiatives the organizations will be offering $5 male cat neuters at the Homeward Bound shelter, 236 Boardman Street in Middlebury on April 22, 28, and 29 and at the RCHS shelter, 765 Stevens Road in Pittsford, on April 24. No appointment is necessary but all cats must arrive in a secure carrier or trap and should skip breakfast. Drop off is between 8 and 11 a.m. No cats will be accepted after 11 a.m. Payment is cash only: exact change required.
