Cat-lovers, bowlers and friends of our supports are coming together to raise money for Toronto Cat Rescue by bowling at our 9th Annual Bowl-A-Thon on May 25th! 19 fabulous teams will be participating, hoping to raise over $15,000 and break last years total.
Why are does TCR need the money? We are a non-profit, 100% volunteer organization that does not receive government funding. The money raised goes directly to helping cats in need… cats like:
- Salma, who was rescued from a hoarding situation with her babies.
- Roller who was saved from the mean streets, so he can have a forever home indoors.
- Ginger Rogers, who was rescued and in need of medical attention before being available for adoption.
- Ace who was sitting on death row at a high-kill shelter.
- Mr Bojangles who, with the help of other rescues/shelters, needed a helping hand at finding happiness. He will be available for adoption in a couple of weeks, but please click on his picture to read his story.
These cats need homes, please don’t leave them in the ‘alley’ all alone (to adopt call 416-538-8592, press #1)! You may also donate with a note that it is for our “Bowl-A-Thon”. Thank you to all of our supports – we hope you have a fabulous time on Saturday!

Just as people are living longer than they did 50 years ago, so are cats. Most people are reluctant to adopt a senior cat due to the fear of them passing away too soon.
Did you know that well cared for indoor cats can live to the age of 20 years? Cats are considered seniors when they turn eight years old! So why not consider adopting a senior kitty this March? Senior cats are some of the hardest to find forever homes for, so when you adopt a senior cat you are truly saving a life. For the month of March ALL of our senior kitties have a reduced adoption fee of $100 (vs. $175) in an effort to help them get adopted into their warm and loving forever homes. View their profiles now!
Adopt Sweet Holly!
Reasons to adopt a senior cat:
- A senior cat’s personality has already developed, so you’ll know if he or she is a good fit for your family.
- A senior cat already knows basic household etiquette like litter box use and do’s/dont’s of playing.
- Senior cats are often content to just relax in your company, unlike younger cats that can get up to mischief.
- Senior cats make great napping buddies during the cold winter months.
- If you have a senior cat already, another cat of similar age can be less stressful for him/her than a young kitten (careful introduction of course).
- Senior cats are generally less demanding than younger cats so if you work long hours, they will be more forgiving of the time left alone.
- Again, senior cats are truly some of the hardest to find homes for, so when you adopt a senior cat, you’re truly saving a life!
