Next steps in Canada's cat over population crisis

By Derek Rumboldt-deLouche | Director Resource Development

On April 16 Humane Canada brought together Canadian Stakeholder Workshop on Developing Collaborative Relationships for Healthy, Safe, and Wanted Cats in our Communities to develop a framework that supports the advancement of collaborative cat welfare programming in Canada.

Following from our earlier initiatives, including the bench setting survey in 2013 and follow up in 2018 on cat population and welfare, we know that there are multiple stakeholders in communities across Canada committed to quality of life for all cats. This workshop was put together to advance cat welfare by uncovering how collaboration among diverse stakeholders can have a positive impact on cats’ lives.

33 participants attended included people from humane societies and SPCAs, cat rescues and sanctuaries, Trap Neuter Release and Spay/Neuter programs, veterinarians, municipal councilors and municipal managers overseeing animal control, and other community partners who are active on cat issues including funding partners.

Participants were identified as individuals committed to collaboration and/or who have experience with collaborative relationships to advance cat welfare and who wanted to listen and share, from first-hand experience, the strategies and tools that are proving effective in addressing cat issues in their communities from across the country.

Humane Canada will be working with the members of it’s Cat Overpopulation Task Force to take the results from this meeting and develop a plan for moving forward.
