With an annual budget of just under $1 million, 1,000 dedicated volunteers, and over 2,500 cats adopted a year, Toronto Cat Rescue (TCR) is a growing organization with a huge impact in the animal rescue community. TCR is in need of an innovative and collaborative leader to strengthen its structure and increase its ability to save lives.
Established in 1994, Toronto Cat Rescue (TCR) is a volunteer-driven, registered charity, cat rescue in Southern Ontario. As one of the largest rescue groups in Canada, TCR has a prominent place in cat rescue across the country. TCR receives no government funding – we operate on our adoption fees, private donations, fundraising activities, and grants. While we have Toronto in our name, over the years TCR expanded geographically from as far east as Whitby to as far west as Oakville. TCR also operates a Kitchener-Waterloo Chapter. TCR has no shelter. We are a network of volunteer foster homes that care for the cats we rescue until they are adopted.
TCR has recently undergone several large and exciting changes. We have gone from an all-volunteer group to having our first paid employees this summer. We have five new board members who bring a wealth of experience and skills. And, we are in the midst of a transition in leadership – and that is where the Executive Director role fits in. The Interim Executive Director is assisting with this transition.
We are searching for a very special, dedicated individual who can help us move forward with these exciting changes. If you love leading and collaborating with dynamic and incredibly dedicated volunteer teams (almost) as much as you love animals, this job may be the perfect fit for you.
TCR supports flexible work arrangements, and professional development consistent with its budget. The salary range is $84,869 – $96,240.
