Do you love cats? Are you available during the day to volunteer? Are you recently retired, but too young to slow down? Do you have daytime hours to fill? TCR is always looking for daytime drivers and in-store volunteers. Volunteering just one hour per week will make a big difference in bettering a TCR foster cat’s life.
Drivers: Drivers are needed to pick up cats from foster homes and drive them to and from vet appointments, foster homes, etc… We also require drivers periodically for various other reasons including picking up carriers/cat food/other supplies. Must have access to your own vehicle and have a valid drivers license.
Store Volunteers: TCR has wonderful affiliated store foster locations for our kitties while they wait for their forever families to adopt them. 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 cats. Various locations, including Toronto, Brampton, Mississauga, Vaughan and Kitchener. (Locations with maps – click here)
Please fill in our volunteer form below for more information and next steps. The kitties thank you!

We have very exciting news, Pet Uno located just east of Ossington Ave on College Street in Toronto has partnered with TCR to foster cats in their lovely store! Pet Uno carries supplies for cats, dogs, birds, fish and small animal companions. They specialize in pet nutrition, wholesome treats, pet accessories and more! Grooming is now available, with daycare and a venue for pet parties or special occasions coming soon.
TCR does not use pet stores as a shelter; instead they act as a temporary placement to give cats extra exposure outside of their foster homes, thus increasing their chances of being adopted. Currently at our new location is kitten George!
ADOPTED! George is the perfect kitten – he loves to cuddle, give kisses and play. He is no regular lazy Garfield at all!! He loves his crinkle ball and will run and follow you around the room. He likes other cats and children. He is waiting for a loving home with other playful cats or a family that will give him lots of attention and playtime. Neutered, Vaccinated, DOB October 1, 2011.
Thank-you Pet Uno for helping George, plus three TCR kittens already adopted from this store (and many future cats and kittens) find their loving forever families!
Halloween Feline Reminders: 1. NO Halloween candy for your fabulous felines, it will make them really sick. If you want to treat them, give them their favourite cat friendly snacks or catnip. Read more: Chocolate Toxicity in Cats and Dogs … Continue reading →
