Fun-Loving Feline Seeks Family

gerrytop

Gerry is a special little dude who has had a rough start, but will win your heart in a second. He wants a family to cherish him as he grows up, and in return he promises to fill your home with laughter (he wears sweaters!). We are seeking a loving family for Gerry who will keep him healthy and well loved.

Gerry is an adorable, young, cuddly fellow with bright and curious eyes. His favourite place is on your shoulder with his head nuzzled against your neck. He also loves to hop on your back if you bend over and rather than jump off again, he usually decides to lie down right there and purr in your ear. Gerry is very playful and has lots of energy since he is still quite young. At his current foster home, he enjoys playing tag with his foster brother – Gerry would do well in a home with another cat that can keep up with him.

Unfortunately this little guy has had a very rough start with two bladder surgeries under his belt and is prone to urine accidents. When he was first rescued, he developed bladder stones at the rare age of four months and he needed surgery to remove them. Since then, his bladder has had trouble recovering and has persistent cystitis.  The vet says it is possible for him to recover fully but he will likely have recurring issues. Gerry is on a special diet and medication because of his bladder issues.

Despite his troubles, Gerry is a very happy guy. All the medication and treatments conducted on him could not affect the size of Gerry’s heart.  He has won many hearts at the vet’s office as well as the hearts of his foster parents and really anyone he comes into contact with. He can be a lot of work, but this sweet boy is worth it!  He lives to love and to be loved; this is what has saved him. Gerry seeks his forever family, and he hopes it is you!

60 Lives Adopt-A-Thon Saturday

IMG_1400

EIGHT very lucky adult cats found their homes via our adopt-a-thon, including two FIV+ fellows!!  Thank you to our amazing adopters, Pet Valu staff, and our dedicated volunteers who screened in-store, drove the cats to (and from) the event, and their caring foster parents!

Calling all forever families – extra special cats need you! Cats from our successful December rescue “60 Lives” are available for adoption and will be waiting in-store Pet Valu Kingsway on Saturday, January 10th from 9am – 5pm. They are vetted, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and will have a reduced adoption fee at the event for $100 (vs. $175).

The cats have waited a long time for loving families to connect with them and bring them home. They are all gorgeous felines who are very deserving of your love and companionship. Open your heart, open your home, adopt, adopt, adopt!

On December 13th, Torontonians stepped up and joined the Toronto Cat Rescue team, offering temporary homes for fifty cats rescued by Humane Society International (HSI). An additional ten cats were placed by HSI, so all sixty cats are now settling into homes while they await their forever families to adopt them (pst: that’s you!).

 

60 Cats Update: Your Help is Still Needed!

safeHSI

Thanks to generous supporters like you, we’ve hit our original goal of $10,000 – but every additional dollar helps us assist more cats in 2015. Please help us start 2015 with the resources to help cats who are desperate for a second chance.

On December 13th, Torontonians stepped up and joined the Toronto Cat Rescue team, offering temporary homes for fifty cats rescued by Humane Society International (HSI). An additional ten cats were placed by HSI, so all sixty cats are now settling into homes while they await their forever families to adopt them.

No cat was left behind. Cats with FIV, dental problems, allergies and ongoing medical needs were placed in Toronto Cat Rescue foster homes Saturday night, and we will do whatever it takes to ensure they too have a promising future.

Donations are very much needed to support this incredible rescue effort. Please click here and donate now. Although donations of any amount are greatly needed and appreciated, please consider making a contribution of $200 to provide care to one of these cats.

To everyone who has helped with this amazing rescue so far, thank you! The cats were denied the most basic care and many were visibly sick when HSI seized them from deplorable conditions and brought them to their temporary, emergency shelter. After many months of care and recovery in the emergency shelter, the cats are ready for this next step. Thanks to all of you, they now have brighter futures with plenty of love and lots of catnip!

Please make a contribution today to support their ongoing medical care and long-term needs while in foster care. We hope to raise $10,000 for these cats by January 1st, and you can help make it happen!
