Caregivers of free-roaming cats and low-income families with dogs and cats may be eligible to receive assistance through the Town’s 2016 Spay-Neuter Voucher Program.

Now in its fourth year, the program accepts applications for spay and neuter vouchers from eligible Essex residents who are at least 18 years of age and a resident of the Town of Essex for at least one year. Vouchers are issued on a first-come, first-served basis.

Caregivers of free-roaming cats may apply for up to a maximum of three vouchers. Low-income residents may apply for one owned dog and one owned cat.

Vouchers are valued at $75 each (inclusive of Harmonized Sales Tax) and can be used at participating veterinary clinics in Windsor and Essex County.

To help slow the growth of colonies of free-roaming cats in the municipality, Council approved a Trap, Neuter and Release (TNR) program in 2015 and extended this program for 2016. Donna Hunter, Director of Corporate Services, says that program has been very successful.

“The intent of the program was to reduce the feral cat population in our communities, along with the nuisance behavior associated with feral cats, such as yowling, fighting and spraying. We were successful in getting more than 100 feral cats spayed and neutered in 2015,” says Hunter.

The TNR program is managed by the Town’s Animal Control Officers. Residents wishing to report the presence of free-roaming cats can contact the Town’s Animal Control Officers at 519-816-7627.

To request a spay-neuter voucher application, residents may contact Town Hall at 519-776-7336.
