Cats (like Dimitri) will be be waiting to meet you at Muddy Paws in the Guild in Scarborough on Saturday, December 22nd from 10am – 4pm! This event will be featuring adult cats only at a reduced fee of $100.00!
Adult cats come with many perks: They are much less work than kittens, their personalities are fully developed so finding a match for your lifestyle is easier. PLUS, after a longer stay in foster care, adult cats are very grateful to have a home and a family. Everyone wants to adopt the cute kittens. Give one of our adult cats the best Christmas present ever – a forever home!
Our adoption fee ensures that the cats that come into our care receive the medical attention they need, are spayed or neutered, vaccinated (and receive a rabies vaccination if age appropriate). Our fee also includes 6 weeks of free pet insurance.

June 2011 to June 2012 was a very busy year for Toronto Cat Rescue, highlights include:
- 1,587 kitties found their forever homes via Toronto Cat Rescue in 2011!
- We found homes for a few cats that had been in foster care for over two years! Finally seeing them get adopted was extremely exciting. We also saw many special needs and senior cats find their forever homes.
- We reached out to 8 new feral cat colonies and began trap-neuter-return strategies.
- We welcomed more than one hundred new volunteers who are integral in placing more cats in loving forever homes.
- We added several new affiliated pet stores, all together providing even more space and exposure than before for our many adoptable cats.
- We had more adopt-a-thons than ever, in both new and existing affiliated pet stores across the GTA!
- One of our biggest fundraisers, our annual Bowl-A-Thon changed locations and grew exponentially.
Update: Many thanks to all our new volunteers! We have the kitty cuddlers we needed for this location.
Volunteers are needed Toronto Cat Rescue’s affiliated Pet Valu location in the west end of Toronto at Bloor & Keele (Keele TTC subway station). We are currently seeking volunteers to visit the cats in-store to make sure they have fresh food and water, clean bedding, dishes and litter boxes, as well as spend time cuddling and playing with the kitties! Training is provided. Please fill in our Volunteer Application if you would like to help!

We are planning to have an *Adopt-a-thon Screener Training Session* on Thursday June 21 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm at Pet Uno . This is intended to train those who are interested in learning to screen potential adopters at TCR adopt-a-thons. We have adopt-a-thons throughout the year at our partner store locations (Torontom Mississauga, Vaughan, Brampton and Kitchener). We are always looking for volunteers to help with setting up and with screening potential adopters. As a new screener, you would be paired up with a ‘seasoned’ screener who could help to show you the ropes until you are comfortable doing it on your own.
Are you devoted to helping TCR cats find their forever homes? We are currently looking to expand our team of adoption coordinators – the volunteers at the front line who screen potential adopters calling our adoption phone line. This is an great opportunity for those who are interested in contributing in a meaningful way to help our cats. If you have a few hours available each week and have good people skills, we would really appreciate your help.
