The service, which runs on Friday and Saturday nights (Saturday and Sunday for New Year's Day) in Winnipeg, is free but donations are accepted and forwarded to local community organizations.

Those in Winnipeg who want the service can call 204-947-6673 (NOSE).
A team of 3 Red Nose volunteers will pick you up and drive you in your own vehicle to the destination of your choice, for free.

CARE Cat Community Outreach Program
To make an appointment please call our office at 204-421-7297

We have openings for low income residents of the City of Winnipeg for $5 cat spaying and neutering, thanks to the "We Are Here For The Animals, We Are Here For You" program, a partnership between CARE, The Winnipeg Humane Society and Winnipeg Animal Services.
Funding comes from the FixIt grant, money raised from City of Winnipeg cat licensing.
Sorry, we cannot fit in cats from outside the city.
C.A.R.E. (Cat Advocacy Rescue & Education) is a nonprofit organization that works to spay/neuter stray and owned cats of low income families within the City of Winnipeg.
