The Regina Humane Society says their situation is reaching dire as the cat population continues to skyrocket in the city.
The Humane Society’s Bill Thorn says there is a variety of reasons Regina has a high number of strays.
“One of them is the warmer winters we’ve had in the last couple of years,” Thorn said. “Along with that, earlier springs and later falls. It’s given cats a whole additional time to have a heat-cycle.So it’s created another complete set of litters.”
Thorn says last year they saw 500 more cats than the year before and this year is now getting close to beating last year’s amount of stray’s coming in.
Another adoption event begins today at the Humane Society, adoption fees for kittens under 16 weeks will be cut to 50 bucks.
Adoption fees will be completely waived for all other cats until the 29th.
