In-Store Adopt-A-Thon With Wag!

TCR_adoptathonWAG_11x17ALL 15 cats were adopted by 1:30pm, and are now in their forever families!! Thank you, thank you!!

Join Toronto Cat Rescue for an adopt-a-thon Saturday, November 29th from 10am-4pm at Wag On The Danforth in the east end of Toronto.

Cats will be waiting in-store for their forever families to adopt them! They would love, love, love to be adopted and not have to return to foster care. They want to help you celebrate the holidays! REMEMBER: When you adopt a kitty from Toronto Cat Rescue you save two lives; the one you adopt and the one you make room for!

Adoption Fee: $50 adoption fees, vs. $175. For cats 8+ years old the adoption fee will be waived, in lieu of a donation of the adopter’s choice to Toronto Cat Rescue. The adoption fee at the adoptathon is payable by cash only. This 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. If you are a resident of Toronto, the adoption fee also includes a 1 year cat license.

Wag on the Danforth in Toronto: 1918 Danforth Avenue (Danforth/Woodbine) – Woodbine TTC subway stop, or street parking.

They Choose You

10476566_10152404533236681_7494571475061711504_oThey Choose You is a collaborative art mixer and ephemeral art installation for adoptable cats and people taking place at Artscape Youngplace, Flex Studio #107.

Saturday, November 22 and Sunday, November 23, 2014
10:00 am – 5:00 pm (both days)

They Choose You will feature rescue cats from Toronto Cat Rescue, all available for adoption. It is art as activism, sincere and absurd at the same time, with a motive somewhere between a cat lady’s dream and a creative way to build community. The lives of the cats are intertwined with the humans who inhabit the same city, allowing for an experiential connection in a shared space, beyond the walls of the animal shelter. Visiting with the cats is free! If you fall in love with one (or two!) and would like to adopt, the adoption fee is only $50, so if you have been thinking about adopting, MEOW is the time!

What can we learn from co-existing with other species? How can a life lived with animal companions alter our perspective and interactions in contemporary life? This event considers these questions and seeks to create an open space where visitors may interact with cats and kittens through play and touch. Such encounters carry the potential for deep connections between non-human ‘others’ and us, existing together in the present moment.

Cat Crafternoon with Emily Gove: Sunday, November 23, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Home For The Holidays (and Always!)

Featured

Our cats want to spend the holidays in their forever home, and we want to make sure they do! From November 14th to December 31st, ALL Toronto Cat Rescue cats have a reduced adoption fee of $50, versus our standard fee of $175.

Our cats want to be your holiday companions – whether it be curling up to watch classic holiday movies, wrapping presents, entertaining guests, rocking around (or in) the Christmas tree, or purring away the quiet moments of reflection and relaxation, they want to be your forever friend.

Just like Santa’s toy sack, we have cats to suit everyone!  We have old cats, baby cats, cats of all colours and sizes. Lap cats, scaredy cats, diva cats, and bonded pairs. Our adoption counsellors want to work with you on finding the right cat for your family and lifestyle. Please open your heart and home to your new feline friend. When you adopt from TCR, you save two lives: the one you take home and the one you make room for (and with over 100,000 homeless cats in Toronto alone, there is always someone waiting to be rescued).  View our Adoptable Cats now! 

As always, our adoption 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 also includes a mandatory City of Toronto cat license that is valid for one year.  To adopt, please call TCR at 416-538-8592 or fill out our online adoption form. 

From all of the cats and volunteers, thank you and happy holidays!
