In-Store Adopt-A-Thon With Wag!

Featured

TCR_adoptathonWAG_11x17Join 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.

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.
