Sweet Pea was transferred urgently to TCR yesterday with severe injuries caused by a fall from a 12th floor apartment building balcony. She is another terribly sad reminder of the dangers of balconies.
The fall broke Sweet Pea’s jaw and she has injuries to her chest and lungs. Her owners could not afford to treat her injuries, so she was surrendered to Toronto Animal Services before being transferred to Toronto Cat Rescue. TCR is getting her all the care that she needs but her surgeries will be expensive as they require the help of a specialist.
Sweet Pea’s vet bills are estimated at $2,000 and the road to recovery will be a long one. This girl is very sweet even through the pain. Please help us get Sweet Pea back to health by making a donation today.

Last October, Toronto Cat Rescue lost a very valued member of the Petsmart Kennedy Commons volunteer team. Jasun Singh, a 4th year journalism student, devoted his spare time and incredible photography talent to capture the beauty and soul of the cats at the adoption centre. Before his life tragically ended, the images he took helped countless numbers of cats find their way in to the hearts of new owners.
Despite his passing, Jasun’s family wanted to see his artistry continue to help cats in need. They collected some of their favourite images, created a calendar and generously covered all design and printing costs in effort to raise money for TCR.
Toronto Cat Rescue recognizes that we couldn’t save any of the cats that we do if it were not for each and every one of our volunteers. We decided that the best way to ensure that Jasun’s gift helped as many cats as possible was to invest the proceeds to support and further develop our volunteer program.
The TCR Executive will be honouring his memory by creating the Jasun Singh Memorial Training Centre in our new rescue centre. 100% of the proceeds of the 2016 calendar sales will fund the design, construction, supplies and resources required to create a space in the rescue centre devoted to improving the knowledge and skills of our volunteers.
Meet Sammy, a Survivor
This month, Toronto Cat Rescue has stepped up to help two large groups of cats from Quebec. Two weeks ago, we welcomed 38 adults and 2 infants from Humane Society International (HSI). Next, we stepped up to help 30 cats from an overcrowded shelter just outside of Quebec City.
That’s 70 cats who are now safe in TCR foster homes. Your donations are what make this possible. Please donate today!
Meet Sammy. His is but one of 70 heart-warming stories to share. When Sammy was found, he was a stray cat who was suffering from a terrible cold. No one expected him to survive.
When he arrived at the shelter, Sammy was extremely emaciated and dehydrated – so much so that the shelter had to feed him small amounts of food to avoid making him sick. After a month of care at the shelter, Sammy was ready for a home, but he had a hard time standing out to adopters in an overcrowded shelter, especially as he has a moderate heart murmur.
Now settling in with a TCR foster parent, Sammy is understanding for the first time what it means to have a home and will be available for adoption very soon.
You can help cats like Sammy today. Please make a donation and stand up for abandoned cats.
