If you find a stray on your property, the first call to make is to your local council to see if they can assist with a council ranger pick up of the cat, but not all councils offer this service.
If not, please call Cat Haven reception on 08 9442 3600 to arrange for our professional ranger to come out to your property, whether it's residential or industrial/commercial, to develop possible solutions to capture the cat and bring it to Cat Haven. It's a much better outcome for the cat to be brought in to our shelter than to be left to fend of itself or cause ongoing problems in the area. This helps the feral cat population issue and means less cat fights, less kitten breeding and better feline disease control, and of course is a much better life for the cat!
There is a small charge for our Ranger to cover the cost of this service as we are a charity - please check when you book the Ranger with our reception staff.
We will check if the cat is microchipped and owned by someone who is missing it, and we have a greater chance of reuniting the cat with it's owner. Or we can rehome the cat if it's homeless.
If you find a stray cat that needs rescuing from a dangerous situation or in distress, or it seems to be injured or in bad condition, we can help - the welfare of the cat is paramount to us and we often don't charge a fee for this rescue. Please check with Reception staff regarding any Ranger Service fees.
