Toronto Cat Rescue

Foster Families Needed

Give a cat the best holiday present – a temporary home!

Toronto Cat Rescue is undertaking the rescue of 100 cats from an overcrowded shelter in Quebec and we need your help! Would you be willing to provide a temporary home for a cat or kitten while they wait for their forever home? Foster homes are such an important part of TCR’s program because we would not be able to rescue any cats without them! Join our amazing team now – apply here.

Thank You Thursday

On this Thank You Thursday we are grateful for your support!

We raised enough money to rescue the 100 cats from Quebec, and ensure that they have all the medical attention, spay or neuter and vaccinations that they need. Without the donations of our incredible supporters, we would not be able to help these cats.

We far exceeded our goal and raised an absolutely incredible $68,000 with the help of our matching donor!

We promise to follow through on our commitment to rescue these 100 cats and ensure their well-being. And thanks to the incredible response, we will also be able to rescue more cats from shelters in Ontario and Quebec who need our support.

On behalf of the cats, the volunteers, the board of directors and the staff of Toronto Cat Rescue, thank you for your ongoing support! (virtual high five!)

Breaking News: Double your impact, save more cats on #GivingTuesday

We desperately need your help to rescue 100 cats at immediate risk before Christmas.  We can’t do these rescues without you.  

#GivingTuesday has come around once again and this year we are hoping to double the impact we had last year! Our friends at the SPA Quebec shelter in Beauceville have reached out to us – they are once again overwhelmed with cats and kittens in their shelter. Today we are launching a campaign to raise $12,500 before midnight tonight in order to fund an urgent rescue of 100 cats, in two separate rescues. Toronto and Kitchener Waterloo have always opened up their hearts and homes for these adoptable cats and kittens and we want to find them forever homes before the Christmas holiday. But we can’t do this rescue without you. 

For these cats and kittens, we are their last chance. The shelter cannot accept new arrivals due to overcrowding and will be forced to euthanize if they are unable to move these precious lives to a new location. Please consider making a donation to sponsor one of these cats in need. Each cat will require a basic physical exam and rabies vaccination upon arrival in Toronto. And we know from experience that there are bound to be other unforeseen medical costs – we recently undertook a smaller rescue and every single cat ended up needing additional medical services. We need to raise a minimum of $12,500 for this rescue before we can make the final decision about whether we can once again answer the call for help.

Please consider sponsoring 1 cat for $125. It’s a small price to pay for saving a very precious life!

And we have great news to share. A longtime volunteer has stepped up to match every dollar donated!* That means every dollar that you donate counts as two. This incredibly generous gift will help us reach our stretch goal even faster. 

If you are unable to fully sponsor one cat, a gift of any amount – $25, $40 or $75would be incredible. If you can, please help us save as many of these lives as possible by making a donation.

Time is of the essence and we need your help by Midnight Tonight! We want to move these cats before the Christmas break and do not want to leave a single cat behind at the shelter. We desperately need you to help us fill up that transport truck!

Toronto Cat Rescue wants to ensure the safe harbour of these precious lives and with your help, we can save them all. On this #GivingTuesday, please help us raise our goal of $12,500 to help give 100 cats and kittens a second chance to find a loving, forever home.

#GivingTuesday is just one day. But we fight every day of every year to rescue and find homes for abandoned, sick or injured cats. Thank you for ongoing support!
