The Kitchener Waterloo Humane Society will be re-opening a clinic for rescue groups thanks to a grant from PetSmart Charities of Canada. 

The Humane Society will be putting the  $35,000 grant towards focussing on spay and neutering efforts. 

Experts say there is a problem of over-population of cats in Canada. In Waterloo Region it is estimated that there are approximately 140,000 unowned or community cats. 

“Animal overpopulation is a serious problem," Kathrin Delutis, Executive Director of the Humane Society Kitchener Waterloo & Stratford Perth said in a release. "This issue is a direct result of animals left unaltered andwe are so excited to have PetSmart Charities partner with us to help make a difference in our communities."

Previously, the Kitchener Waterloo Humane Society had a clinic that provided no-cost spay and neuter surgeries for rescue groups from London to Toronto. The clinic was in operation until July of 2018. 

The clinic is open to anyone who manages a registered cat colony. For more information you can click here
