What We Do

Based in Falmouth, we provide spaying/neutering, veterinary care, medical treatment and foster homes for unwanted, abandoned and feral cats in Nova Scotia.


We safely trap, neuter/spay feral cats and release them back to their colonies.


Foster care for abandoned cats and kittens until they can be adopted into forever homes.


When we have adoptable cats or kittens, we do our best to match them with a forever home and family.

Welcome to our website! Please follow us on facebook for up to date news, events, and adoptable felines.
