Community Cat Program

Miami Township and the Humane Society of Greater Dayton are teaming up to help control the stray cat population in our community. The Miami Township Community Cat Program is free of charge to residents living in the unincorporated portion of the township. This program is designed to reduce the number of un-owned cats roaming township neighborhoods.

This is how it works:

Step 1: Rent a trap from the Humane Society of Greater Dayton. You must put down a $75 deposit for the trap that will be reimbursed upon the trap’s return to the shelter.

Step 2: Humanely trap un-owned, stray cats on your property. House pets are not included in this program.

Step 3: Call the Humane Society of Greater Dayton at (937) 268-7387 to schedule a time to drop off your trapped cats. Cats must be at least two pounds and eight weeks of age to safely have surgery. The Humane Society is located at 1661 Nicholas Road in Dayton (VIEW MAP).

Step 4: The cat will be spayed or neutered as well as ear-tipped, which is the universal sign of an altered stray cat.

Step 5: The altered cats will be released where they were initially trapped. Friendly cats, if space allows, will enter the Humane Society of Greater Dayton’s Adoption Program.
