The Town does not have a by-law regulating cats. The Town will work with residents to reduce cat nuisance issues and the overpopulation of cats.

Nuisance Cats Deterrent Program

Residents can borrow a device called "Cat Stop" to deter cats from their property. The "Cat Stop" emits an ultrasonic sound that startles the cats and teaches them to stay away from the area.

Spay and Neuter Program

The Town runs a Spay and Neuter program. Local residents have 2 options:

  1. The Town provides a subsidy program for persons with limited financial resources. To qualify for this program, residents must be pre approved and proof of income is required. The Town will pay for half of the surgery. This program is also available for dogs. You must fill out the form and receive approval prior to making a spay/neuter appointment for your pet.
  2. The bi-annual Spay Neuter Event. Parry Sound residents can have their pet spayed/neutered at a high volume spay neuter clinic. The By-law Enforcement Department provides the transportation to the high volume clinic and the resident pays for the surgery. This program is for cats only.
