Great partnerships save cats’ lives!
Over the past few years, TCR has had a partnership with the London Animal Care Centre (LACC), stepping in to help out when their shelter is overwhelmed. This week, we received the wonderful letter below from the Director of Operations at LACC – thanking us for our efforts. This has been a very successful relationship and has saved the lives of hundreds of cats. A special thanks to all of you who have opened your homes and hearts to one of the kitties from London!
Dear TCR board members and Volunteers,
I wanted to thank you for the assistance your organization has provided over the years here at the London Animal Care Centre. With the cat population challenges continuing in our community it has certainly been an ongoing concern in the City of London. It is clear to me that the assistance that Toronto Cat Rescue (TCR) provides helps us in maintaining a 90% live release rate currently for cats in our community. Your entire teams efforts have a considerable impact here in London in helping reduce the euthanasia of cats.
I wanted to also mention that your knowledge of domestic cats is second to none but your secret to success as an organization is your respect, care and concern for the relationships you build with all stakeholders in the community. Your ability to facilitate transfers is seamless and ultimately reduces stress on staff and the cats leaving our shelter. We are very grateful for your approach and have appreciated your support over the last 3 years as we have strived to improve animal welfare in our community.
We look forward to continuing working with you in the future.
Director of Operations
London Animal Care Centre
