We have cats of all ages and colours, cats that are playful and cats that are laid-back. We have kid loving kitties, and cats that wish for adult-only homes. Cats that love dogs, and cats that want to be the the only pet-love of your life. We have low maintenance cats, and cats that require lots of tender loving care or medication. Our adoption co-ordinators can help you pick a kitty that is a purr-fect fit for your home, if you can’t decide! All of Toronto Cat Rescue’s cats are special in their own way and very deserving of a second chance at love!
Decided on the kitty you would like to adopt? Please call the TCR Hotline – 416-538-8592 (press 1 for adoptions and leave a message), or fill in the on-line adoption form below.
Adoption Process: An adoption counsellor will return your call and give you more details about the cat you are interested in and ask some questions about your home to make sure the cat will be a “purr-fect” fit. We are happy to answer any questions you may have as well.
Next you will be supplied with the foster home address to have a meet and greet with your kitty. If both parties are happy, you can sign the TCR Contract of Adoption, pay the adoption fee and take your kitty home with you (in a safe carrying case).
Our adoption fee is $175. Each cat has a two week assessment period in their foster home before being available for adoption. This ensures that the cats that come into our care receive the medical attention they need and we learn about their personalities, likes and dislikes. Our fee includes: spay or neuter, vaccination (and receive a rabies vaccination if age appropriate) and includes 6 weeks of free pet insurance. For City of Toronto residents, the adoption fee includes a mandatory City of Toronto cat license that is valid for one year. As you can imagine, these fees only begin to cover our costs; donations & fundraising carry us the rest of the way!
Note: As of March 1st, 2014 all senior cats (8 years or older) have an adoption fee of the adopters choice, vs. our standard adoption fee of $175.
TCR offers six weeks of free pet insurance for your newly adopted cat through Adopt Secure. To activate your free pet insurance, please go to adoptsecure.ca or call 1-800-268-1169 within 10 days of the adoption. We recommend that you activate the insurance when you bring your new family member home with you. For a quick Adopt Secure summary of coverage: Adoptsecure Program Summary.
