Do you love cats? Are you an enthusiastic runner, jogger, or walker? Join the Toronto Cat Rescue (TCR) team at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon October 19th, and help save a life! This will be our fifth year participating in this event, during which time it has evolved into our largest annual fundraiser!
Last year, the TCR team raised just under $23,000, directly impacting the lives of hundreds of cats rescued from situations of abandonment, neglect, and imminent euthanasia. This year, the team hopes to help save even more lives by raising $30,000, and you can make it happen!
Join the team today by filling out the below form.
The first 15 participants to register and raise $100 will have their registration fee waived, so contact us early! Everyone on the TCR team will receive a free t-shirt.
Not a marathon runner? Don’t worry! Most of the TCR team participates in a 5K walk/run, so cat lovers of all levels of fitness are encouraged to join!
Meet HAPPY & JOY! Adopt one, or both, of these adorable brown tabbies! The girls are already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats, DOB June 20, 2013.
Sisters Happy and Joy got their names because from the minute they walked into their foster mom’s home that is what they have given to her. Just looking at their faces makes their foster mom feel happy and full of joy! They are both so cute and small and playful that life just seems like fun to them.
Joy and Happy were rescued from a rural property where they were living outside with a small colony of cats. They were both very social so when they were trapped to be spayed it was decided they should be brought into a TCR foster home in order to get adopted rather than being returned to their former outdoor life.
UPDATE: The girls have been adopted TOGETHER!!
On Saturday, May 31, TCR supporters gathered for a fun day of bowling, pizza, and prizes! The 10th Annual Bowl-a-thon was great fun, and together we raised $10,500 for the cats!
Congratulations to our top bowler, Michelle M, who individually raised over $2,000! A huge thank you also goes out to our sponsors, especially to our presenting sponsor Minuk Construction & Engineering Co., and our silver kitten sponsors Annex Animal Hospital, Durham Fasteners, & Pet Valu Maple.
This event would not have been possible without the hard work of our organizers: Heather D., Sarah M., and Wendy S., as well as everyone who participated, volunteered, and donated prizes and pledges.
Thank you everyone! We look forward to seeing you next year at our next Bowl-a-thon!
