Making an appointment to surrender a cat to the Niagara County SPCA

All cats accepted by the Niagara County SPCA are accepted from our waiting list.  When an owner calls, the reception desk will ask for basic owner contact information and specifics on the cat(s) to be surrendered for adoption.  When space permits we will call owners from our waiting list and schedule an appointment to bring the cat(s) in.  On the day of intake, owners will be asked to fill out a feline surrender profile.  Owners may also print the surrender profile from home Feline Surrender Profile and bring the completed profile with them upon intake or fill out a profile at the shelter.  Please plan to spend at least 30 minutes for the intake process.  All cats will be updated on vaccinations upon intake, if necessary.

When a cat is surrendered the owner will be given the option to place a $15 RTO (return to owner) deposit on the cat if he or she cannot be placed up for adoption or must be removed from the adoption floor for either health or behavior reasons.  The shelter will place a call into the owner letting them know that their cat cannot be placed up for adoption or that he or she was pulled from adoptions.  The owner will have 24 hours from the time the call was placed to reclaim the cat.  If the cat cannot be placed up for adoption or the cat is pulled from adoptions due to a medical condition the shelter can treat, the cat will be placed into foster care with the owner.  Medication will be provided to the owner or foster home for treatment.  When the animal is examined and deemed healthy, the animal may be brought back to the shelter and placed back up for adoption.  If an RTO hold is not placed on the cat or the owner does not come back to reclaim the cat, the owner leaves knowing that every attempt will be made to place the cat up for adoption, but that humane euthanasia is a possibility.

 

Animal Admissions

The Niagara County SPCA is only able to accept cats from within Niagara County.  If you reside within another county, please contact your local SPCA or humane organization.  Finders of stray cats outside of Niagara County will also be directed to their local SPCA.

The Niagara County SPCA accepts cats from a waiting list ONLY.  Please call the shelter at 716-731-4368 to find out the current wait time for felines.

ATTENTION  The Niagara County SPCA NO LONGER accepts healthy feral cats.  The shelter cannot safely rehome feral cats nor will we euthanize any healthy cat.  To find out more about feral cats and options for population control through TNVR (Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate and Release) please visit Feral Cat Focus' website or Ally Cat Allies' website.  You may also contact Feral Cat Focus at
