National Volunteer Week – Thank you Jessica and Mike!
This #NationalVolunteerWeek, Toronto Cat Rescue is saying Thank You from the bottom of our hearts to all of our volunteers across Toronto, Kitchener-Waterloo, and beyond. Today, we say thanks to both Jessica Groen and Mike Belley who are Toronto foster parents, taking care of cats in need in the GTA.
We are Jess and Mike and we’re foster parents with TCR. Its our job to provide temporary homes to cats before they are adopted out to their forever homes. Sometimes the cats come in with health issues that need taking care of, maybe they are undersocialised or extra scared; or maybe just aren’t ready to go to their home yet.
We think we have the best job in the world because when we are fostering, our home just feels like a never-ending feed of cute cat moments. The warmth and love that the cats bring into our home is reward in itself and we love having them around.
We started fostering with TCR around Christmas 2019 when there was an urgent hoarder situation. A friend of ours had adopted her cat with TCR and only had great things to say about the organization and its people. Our experience so far has been amazing – we are so lucky to be surrounded by such a passionate and supportive group of people. The people are not only awesome but organized and efficient which we feel gives their cats the best chance of success. We are so grateful to have found TCR and can’t wait for many more happy moments to come.
