What a character Polka Dot is. He entertains everyone with his silly antics and playful nature. He often walks around the house with a toy ball in his mouth or spends his time chasing dust flecks in the air. He is currently seeking his forever home, or a single-cat foster home until he gets adopted!
Wherever he is and whatever is around him he can turn it into a game. Polka Dot is a happy boy who doesn’t appear to have a care in the world. When he is done with all of his playing, he also loves attention and will curl up in his foster mom’s lap to sleep while she watches TV. He rolls on his back for a belly rub and is fine to be picked up and cuddled. He has a cute little meow he makes when he wants attention. Polka Dot is a sweet boy with a gentle soul and a playful nature.
He was rescued from outside along with his mom (Amber) and his siblings (who have all been adopted). It is Polka Dot’s turn to find his forever family. Polka Dot is Feline Leukemia Positive. Despite having the virus he is currently in good health, but most likely the Feline Leukemia virus could cause complications down the road. However, for now he is a engaging, stunning boy who deserves a proper chance to have a forever home. Although he does get along with other cats, he can only go to a home with other cats if they are also Feline Leukemia positive, as it is a contagious virus to cats only. He lives with big dogs and a child and he is fine with all of them. Polka Dot is a real show stopper and is guaranteed to make you fall in love with him.
In hopes of finding Polka Dot his purr-fect family, we are waiving our standard adoption fee of $175 for a donation of your choice.
Polka Dot was born July 30, 2012 and has been neutered and vaccinated. To adopt, call us 416-538-8592, press #1 / email us: firstname.lastname@example.org / fill in our adoption online form on our Adopt A Cat page. To foster (single-cat family please), fill in our Foster Application.
April 21st to 27th, 2013 is National Volunteer Week in Canada. Toronto Cat Rescue would like to take this opportunity to thank our volunteers for their amazing dedication, time and passion. We are 100% volunteer with no government funding, so without our volunteers Toronto Cat Rescue would not exist.
Please take a few minutes and leave a message for our amazing Toronto Cat Rescue volunteers!
Do you love cats? Do you want to help cats have better lives? Was your New Year’s resolution to volunteer your time in 2013? Toronto Cat Rescue would love to have you as part of our team! Find out how you can help on January 17th when we are hosting our volunteer recruitment day from 4pm – 7pm at Pet Uno in Toronto. Please RSVP to Colette: Cats.Colette@gmail.com.
The end of 2012 is quickly approaching. Just a few reminders for TCR volunteers who will be submitting TCR expense receipts (food, litter, foster cat vet bills etc.) for an income tax receipt.
deadline January 15, 2013
original 2012 receipts only (2011 receipts can no longer be accepted)
include a spreadsheet with receipts listed in the same order that they are submitted
total of all receipts should be clearly marked on the spreadsheet
please group like receipts (e.g. Petsmart, Costco, Pet Valu) together
please indicate clearly what are TCR purchases if the entire receipt is not for TCR
provide name and mailing address to be used on the tax receipt on the spreadsheet
send hard copy of spreadsheet along with all original receipts to the TCR PO Box (do not email your spreadsheet)
send all receipts in one envelope
credit card payment slips cannot be accepted
parking tickets cannot be accepted
gas receipts cannot be accepted (see information for mileage calculation)
mileage can be claimed on a separate spreadsheet. List all kms driven as well as purpose for drive. Calculate total # of kms. A tax receipt will be provided based on $0.53 for the first 5000km and $0.47 for any remaining kms. e.g.January 20, 2012 Hamilton 150km / January 30, 2012 XYZ vet 40km / TOTAL 190km
it can take up to 2 months to get your tax receipt to you – get them in early to guarantee that they can be processed by tax time.
* All receipts and spreadsheets are carefully checked. If there is a discrepancy in the calculation, it can delay you receiving your tax receipt.
* For foster homes, please refer to your FAQ package for more details
Do you have holiday spirit? Would you love to help make animals Christmas wishes come true? Would you love to help Toronto Cat Rescue raise much needed funds for the cats?
We need Santas, elves and photographers. PetSmart’s Photo With Santa promotion is taking place in December and we need YOU! The event lets pet parents and their pets pose for a photo with Santa. If they purchase a digital photograph in a holiday collector frame a portion of the proceeds collected at Toronto Cat Rescue’s affiliated store locations will be donated to TCR kitties!
We need volunteers to make the event possible at our PetSmart locations. Outfits and equipment are supplied by PetSmart. It is a great way to get into the holiday spirit while helping a great cause, and seeing all the cute animals snuggle in with Santa! If you would like to help, please fill in our volunteer form below! For maps to the store locations, click here. Thank YOU!
The event takes place from 11am – 4pm: December 1 & 2, December 8 & 9, December 15 & 16.
