We Need Your Help To Save Even More Lives


Toronto Cat Rescue’s foster care program provides temporary housing and care for cats and kittens who need some extra love and attention that a shelter environment cannot provide.  In 2014, our network of foster home volunteers helped to save the lives of more than 2200 cats and kittens!   Without them, cats like Bartholomew (pictured here recovering from eye and dental surgery), may not have a chance at adoption.

For Toronto Cat Rescue, the summer brings challenges.  We are always short of foster space because the shelters are overcrowded with kittens, our foster homes get busy with vacations, weddings and other fun things!  There are a line up of cats that are waiting for your help!

We need your help to save even more lives.  Help a cat like Bartholomew recover from surgery, give a mom cat a safe place to raise her babies, let a litter of kittens take over your bathroom while they recover from a cold, help a fat cat lose weight, teach a cat to learn to trust humans again – the needs are endless.  Toronto Cat Rescue provides the medical care, but we need you to provide the love and patience they need.

Fill out this application to become a TCR foster home today!  If you cannot foster please consider making a donation toward Bartholomew’s surgery.

ChangeIt with TCR!


changeitToronto Cat Rescue is now a Charity Partner of ChangeIt®! This is a new way to give while making your everyday purchases. ChangeIt lets you automatically round up your electronic purchases and donate the difference to rescue cats in need!

For example, if you pay $2.82 for a large coffee using your BMO MasterCard*, $0.18 will be rounded up, added to your other accumulated spare change round-ups and given to Toronto Cat Rescue in one simple transaction each month. There is no change to your receipt or your purchasing experience. In fact the cashiers will never even know you are donating… but don’t let that stop you from telling them.

At the end of each month, a monthly donation notification will be sent directly to your inbox to let you know how much you contributed that month. At the end of each year, you’ll also receive an Official Donation Receipt for Income Tax Purposes from Toronto Cat Rescue for every penny you donate!

If you’re a BMO MasterCard* holder and would like to support Toronto Cat Rescue through ChangeIt, here’s how you can get started:

  • Sign up your BMO MasterCard* at ChangeIt
  • Select Toronto Cat Rescue and set your rounding limits
  • Use your BMO MasterCard* and start making a difference

You can track your donations online, adjust your rounding preferences and even set a monthly maximum to ensure you never give more than you want. ChangeIt makes giving easy, and this small change can make a huge difference towards saving lives.

Help us spread the word about this incredible opportunity for others to support Toronto Cat Rescue with every swipe of their BMO MasterCard*! Tell your friends, your family and your social networks – it all starts with a little “change”!
