Introducing Healthy Mandy and Kim… plus a very hefty vet bill

Update: Mandy & Kim have been adopted!

Mandy and Kim are a bonded pair of pretty nine-year old sisters that were surrendered to TCR when their owner had to move into a shelter. They are lovely, sweet and quiet girls that deserve all the love in the world. Since coming into our program, TCR has spent over $8,000 in medical bills to treat a persistent skin infection, ensuring they are healthy for their forever family. They have spent four months in a treatment program and have been little gems, but what they really need is a secure home to call their own – together of course!  Mandy and Kim deserve only the best home after all that they have been through; someone declawed them in their lifetime, and they were abandoned late in their lives for reasons beyond anything they did or did not do.  Please give these loving ladies their forever home.

Mandy is a stunning girl with her long colourful hair.  Mandy loves to lick everything and enjoys being patted!!  She is very sweet and enjoys spending her time indoors watching the world around her.  She is very quite and should go to a home without other cats (except Kim of course!).  She grew up around two children, but has never been in the company of dogs.

Kim is a sweet and affectionate lady. She is comfortable around other cats (although Mandy is not) and grew up in a home with children.  She purrs all the time and keeps herself occupied by playing with her toys.  Kim loves to have her ears and chin scratched and she enjoys being patted and cuddled.  She will complete any family looking for a little extra love!

TCR is desperately in need of donations to help cover the $8,000 vet bills that have been spent making Kim and Mandy well. We always do everything possible for the cats in our care, but it can be hard to sustain our foster program when we rely solely on adoption fees and donations. If you are able donate towards their hefty bill, please click here for Ways to Donate, or via our Cat Sponsorship page.  Please make a note that your donation is to go towards “Mandy & Kim’s Medical Bill” as we are tracking our progress via the fancy Fundraising Thermometer below!  We hope to reach our goal of $8,000 as quickly as possible, as there are always so many cats needing our help.  Check back to monitor our progress, but we will post an update next Saturday. A special thanks from Kim & Mandy!

New Affiliated TCR Pet Store!

Pet Valu: Keele & Wilson

We have very exciting news, Pet Valu located at Keele Street & Wilson Avenue in Toronto has partnered with TCR to foster cats in their lovely store!

TCR does not use pet stores as a shelter; instead they act as a temporary placement to give cats extra exposure outside of their foster homes, thus increasing their chances of being adopted.

Sweetheart Sam!

Update: Sweet Sam has been adopted!

Sam, a six year old long haired calico, is currently being fostered at the new store.  Sam was surrendered to TCR after her elderly owner passed away.  She was very traumatized after her world got turned upside down, but she is gaining her confidence back with each day.  Sam is a gentle, sweet girl that loves nothing more than to be scratched and petted.  She will push her entire body into your hand asking for more and drools when she is happy.  She has been shaved as her owner was unable to regularly brush her long coat.  Sam loves her new look and feels great now that she is no longer matted.  Sam has a runny eye which has been treated with antibiotics, however the vet believes that it will continue to clear up with a good diet and less stress.  It does not bother her at all but does need to be wiped occasionally.  Sam is fine with other cats but would be just as happy as your only feline companion.  Her new family should set up a sanctuary room to help her settle into her new home as she can become overwhelmed with new situations and hide.  She is not used to a lot of noise and commotion, so a quiet adult only home would be her preference.

Thank-you Pet Valu for helping Sam and many future cats find their loving forever families!

Rocky Urgently Seeks Home

Update: ADOPTED!

Rocky is a big lug – a pretty typical tom cat with a big loveable head! He was trapped late last week from a feral cat colony TCR is working with in Newcastle, Ontario. This boy, however, is anything but feral! He is cuddly, laid back and vocal – a real character! He doesn’t love being picked up but otherwise he is an absolute gem and he appears to be just fine with other cats as well, especially now that he is neutered.

Rocky has been neutered, vaccinated and treated for mites and fleas, and is currently healing from an injury on his ear.
