Low bid

Nova Scotia SPCA offers cheaper solution to Halifax cat problem.

A meeting between regional councillors and SPCA representatives on Friday showed the non-profit organization could provide a non-lethal way to control the stray cat population for far less money than the city’s own plan.

The Halifax Regional Municipality-drafted plan didn’t involve the SPCA and allocated nearly $600,000 annually for a trap, neuter and release program. The SPCA said it could offer the same service for $208,000.

That figure included the cost of setting up a clinic and all the veterinary equipment needed to perform spaying and neutering surgery and would ensure a drop in the stray cat population without resorting to euthanasia.
