By our estimates, there are approximately 11,250 feral cats in Columbia County.

Our feral cat spay/neuter program will give a rabies/distemper vaccination and do an ear tip during surgery before the cat is released back to their colony. The clipped ear will make them easily identifiable as spayed or neutered cats. They can live out their lives happily without reproducing. The feral cats that pass temperament testing would be eligible for adoption. Research has shown this is by far the best and most humane approach to de-escalate a feral cat population. Research also proves that Euthanasia for a method of population control DOES NOT work. By starting with the large cat colonies that we have identified in the county, we can start to reduce the number of feral cats that populate and begin to reduce the total number of cats that roam our county now and the future. You can assist us by sponsoring cats spay/neuter surgery - Each cat costs us approximately $40. Click the donate button TODAY and please, be as generous as possible. Euthanasia free by 2025!

About Us

Lake City Humane Society, a private nonprofit organization, was formed in late 1964 to address animal welfare issues in our community. There was no animal shelter, and little attention was paid to the hundreds, if not thousands of animals that were picked up off the streets and killed if no one came to claim them.One city employee – the “dog catcher” was hired to catch and dispose of stray and unclaimed dogs in our area.
