Cats must be brought to the shelter in a live humane animal trap (one cat per trap). For the safety of staff, cats that are not in live humane traps are not accepted on the day of surgery. Surgeries for stray cats are offered only on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you do not have a live animal trap, one can be rented from the Humane Society for a minimal fee.
What cities does the Humane Society of Greater Dayton work with?
Currently, the Humane Society of Greater works with several areas, including the city of Dayton, Clayton, Drexel, Englewood, Harrison Twp, Huber Heights, Miami Twp., Miamisburg, Moraine and Trotwood to trap community cats as part of our Community Cat Initiative. SICSA agreed to absorb the Kettering area. If a resident or employee from these areas schedules a time with us, they can bring in a cat to our facility to have them spayed or neutered. After the cat recovers from surgery, the person can then pick up the cat and return it to where it was found in the community. The cat will also be ear-tipped the during the surgery, which is a clear identifier that the community cat has been spayed or neutered. To schedule a time to bring in a community cat or to see current fee rates for your area, call (937) 268-7387.
