CatSnip: Partnering to prevent unwanted kittens through April 

The Rutland County Humane Society and Homeward Bound join forces in April to offer $5 male cat neuters

PITTSFORD—The Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS), Homeward Bound, Addison County’s Humane Society, and Community Cats Podcast are proud to partner up for a cat neuter-a-thon during the month of April.

All three organizations share a goal of reducing the number of unwanted kittens that will be born between April and October of this year. In 2022, RCHS and Homeward Bound saw a total of 588 community kittens enter our respective shelters.

To get ahead of this annual influx, prevent unnecessary suffering, and free up resources for other life-saving initiatives the organizations will be offering $5 male cat neuters at the RCHS shelter, 765 Stevens Road in Pittsford, on April 3, 10, and 24 and at the Homeward Bound shelter, 236 Boardman Street in Middlebury on April 1, 22, 28, and 29. No appointment is necessary but all cats must arrive in a secure carrier or trap and should skip breakfast! Drop off in Pittsford is between 9 a.m.-12 noon. No cats will be accepted after 12 noon. Drop off in Middlebury is between 8-11a.m. No cats will be accepted after 11am. Cash only; exact change required.

Rutland County Humane Society’s Executive Director Beth Saradarian shares: “Cats tend to wander, sometimes from one county to another, so we’re excited to partner with our Addison County colleagues to outsmart the Tomcats and reduce unintended breeding in both Rutland and Addison counties!”
