It’s a brand new decade and Toronto Cat Rescue is growing again! We are currently seeking a part-time Veterinary Care Coordinator to help with our busy operations department and complex cat rescue.
The health of our rescue cats and the support of our foster coordinators and foster homes is paramount to our mission. Saving nearly 2,800 cats each year and spending over half a million dollars in veterinary costs takes a huge amount of resources. Our goal with this new position is to reduce our veterinary spending and save more cats, with a primary purpose of providing much needed support of our volunteers and teams who deal with difficult health issues every day.
Ideally, the successful candidate will work 4-5 days per week, 4-5 hours per day, but not more than 20 hours per week. Visit our Careers section for more information and to see how to apply.
Did you have your eye on one of our awesome products? For this year’s Boxing Week Sale we are offering 25% off your entire order when you shop via our online store. Shirts and accessories for humans of all ages, cat hammocks, cat mats and cat toys (filled with the best catnip!) for your favourite felines. All proceeds from our online store go to helping rescue cats in need.
Did you know? We rescue on average 2,500 cats per year! Every cat that we rescue receives a visit to the vet, spay/neuter, and age appropriate vaccinations. These amazing cats then go to friendly foster homes to prepare for adoption into their forever homes.
UPDATE: Rescue In Action: All 25 adults + 4 babies have a safe, warm spot in TCR foster care! We are overwhelmed by the amazing people who stepped up to help – it is truly a holiday miracle. THANK YOU!!!
All the cats will be placed with TCR volunteers in foster care by tomorrow. The ones that are currently in our foster homes are settling in okay; they are shy, but eating, drinking and using the litter box.
***URGENT: We are asking anyone with a small room or separate space who can foster a cat (or two!) to please step up and open your heart and home NOW!
Rescue In Action: We are trying to help our main partner rescue 20+ cats from a single source, but we need new foster families as soon as possible to be able to help! The cats have been neglected, not spayed or neutered, and need special care. If you have an extra room in your house, and a few weeks to give a cat a warm and loving space to adjust and start to live again, please, please fill in our foster application now.
Please share widely – we need to act fast and need all the help we can get! Pictured are just some of the cats seeking foster homes. Thank you!!
