Spaying female cats:

  • Prevents unwanted litters

  • Reduces the serious pet overpopulation problem
  • Prevents inconveniences to owners
  • Makes cats calmer and get along better

The Miramichi requires that you commit to spaying your pet upon adoption, should it not already be altered.
Failure to do so may result in repossession of the animal.

Kittens (under 6 months old)
Kittens should be spayed or neutered by six months of age.

Spaying and neutering:

  • Prevents unwanted litters
  • Reduces the urge to roam, mate, spray and fight
  • Protects against diseases of the reproductive system
  • Reduces the serious pet overpopulation problem
  • Prevents inconveniences to owners

"Barn Buddies" Cats

The BARN BUDDIES is a program that evolved as a result of a large/number of wild/feral cats that came to our shelter that were not readily adoptable or not well-suited to domesticated living. These cats are trapped, spayed or neutered, and are in good health. Some have been at the shelter for a extended period of time, yet have not adjusted well to domesticated life. It is these cats that we wish to pair up with owners of safe, well insulated barn or enclosures so that they may be relieved of stress and live in an environment with which they are more comfortable and familiar with.

We only ask the following:

  • The barn/building must be a protective, insulated enclosure which the cat can easily enter
  • The cat should be contained in the barn for the first several days to become accustomed to the building and reduce the risk of running away
  • You must be willing to feed and provide fresh water daily; it should not be expected to provide for itself
  • You must be willing to bring him/her to a vet if needed

If you have a suitable barn or building as well as a warm heart and want to provide the opportunity at a good life for one or more of these cats, please contact us at 1-506-622-0645. Once approved, these cats are available for a donation.

Male Cats
Male cats should be neutered by six months of age.

Neutering male cats:

  • ​Reduces the urge to roam, mate, spray and fight
  • Protects against diseases of the reproductive system
  • Reduces the serious pet overpopulation problem
  • Prevents inconveniences to owners
  • Makes cats calmer and get along better

The Miramichi SPCA requires that you commit to neutering your pet upon adoption, should it not already be altered.
Failure to do so may result in repossession of the animal.

Special Needs
"Special Needs" cats are those requiring extra tender loving care (TLC).

They may be cats that:

  • Are highly stressed by "shelter" life
  • Require special medical care
  • Have been at the shelter an extremely long time
  • Elderly and do not deserve to spend their senior years in a shelter
  • Are bonded and cannot be separated

Special cats need special humans. We hope you find it in your heart to give these cats the extra care and attention they need.

Dogs and Puppies
Puppies should be spayed/neutered by 6 months of age.

Spaying or neutering your dogs can:

  • prevent urine marking, humping, male aggression and the urge to roam
  • prevent cancers of the reproductive system (male and female)
  • nearly eliminate the risk of breast cancer (in females)
  • help control the pet overpopulation problem
  • prevent inconveniences to owners

The Miramichi SPCA requires that you commit to spaying/neutering your pet upon adoption, should it not already be altered.
Failure to do so may result in repossession of the animal.

Other Pets

Not every loving pet will come in the form of a cat or dog.

Consider welcoming a more unique animal into your home, such as rabbits, mice or guinea pigs!
