The stray cat problem in Ottawa is significant and twofold: feral cat colonies exist all over the city and are not managed, in part because there are no publicly accessible spay/neuter-and-release programs.


These colonies grow ever larger when pet cats are not neutered or spayed, and are abandoned, lost, or allowed to be outside to breed with ferals and other strays.

Unfortunately The Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue is presently at capacity and cannot accept any more cats at this time. Please reach out to Ottawa Humane Society or some of the other local rescues for assistance.
