Donations are desperately needed to support Trap-Neuter-Return (Monitor) efforts in a West End colony that TCR has just started working with.
This colony, located at Hurontario and Dundas in Mississauga, consists of at least 35 cats that have been cared for by community members for approximately a decade. With all the inbreeding that has taken place over the years, almost the entire colony is grey, black & white, or black! The cats are fed every day by dedicated caregivers, and they are well sheltered. The colony sits behind a strip plaza that backs onto a park.
All they need is to stop breeding! TNR(M) is well under way, with 9 cats already fixed, vaccinated, ear tipped and returned to the colony. However it is an expensive endeavour for a rescue group to carry all of the costs associated with TNR(M). Each cat costs at least $100 in vet bills.
Will you donate towards the cause? All donations over $10 will receive a tax receipt and go directly towards the spaying/neutering efforts. If you make a $100 donation one more cat from this colony can get fixed! Please donate online via CanadaHelps, please make a note that your donation is for “Sue G’s Mississauga Colony”. If you have any questions, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Few Words from Colbey: “I am an extremely curious, excitable and hyper guy! I love lots of activity and attention, but prefer attention from humans than from other cats. I came from a life on the streets, where I was in a very busy subdivision trying to fend for myself. Now with the hard times behind me I am really soaking up the love in my foster home! An ideal day for me is playing with my catnip pillow, getting lots of rubs, talking to my people, then eating a big meal and curling up for cuddles and purrs”.
DSH, silver tabby, male, neutered, vaccinated, DOB March 27, 2008. Colbey is a very handsome fellow who is almost more pewter-coloured than grey. He is so loving and seeking of affection. He gives kisses and sometimes gently nips to express his love. He is very talkative, so will make a very loyal, doting companion! He is best suited in an adult-only, single-cat family where he can bask in your attention. He is so entertaining with his wide-eyed expressions that he will delight you all day long. You will always know love with Colbey in the home!
If you would like to set-up a meet & greet with his charming fellow, please contact TCR: (416) 538-8592, press #1 (to see more pictures, please click his photo above).

Toronto Cat Rescue is often the only hope for a homeless, abandoned, sick or injured cat. We help cats escape situations of abuse, neglect, or imminent euthanasia. We see some terribly sad cases, but happily many of them have positive outcomes thanks to all the caring cat lovers who have adopted from us over the years.
