Over the past few years, TCR has had a partnership with the London Animal Care Centre (LACC), stepping in to help out when their shelter is overwhelmed. This week, we received the wonderful letter below from the Director of Operations at LACC – thanking us for our efforts. This has been a very successful relationship and has saved the lives of hundreds of cats. A special thanks to all of you who have opened your homes and hearts to one of the kitties from London!
Dear TCR board members and Volunteers,
I wanted to thank you for the assistance your organization has provided over the years here at the London Animal Care Centre. With the cat population challenges continuing in our community it has certainly been an ongoing concern in the City of London. It is clear to me that the assistance that Toronto Cat Rescue (TCR) provides helps us in maintaining a 90% live release rate currently for cats in our community. Your entire teams efforts have a considerable impact here in London in helping reduce the euthanasia of cats.
I wanted to also mention that your knowledge of domestic cats is second to none but your secret to success as an organization is your respect, care and concern for the relationships you build with all stakeholders in the community. Your ability to facilitate transfers is seamless and ultimately reduces stress on staff and the cats leaving our shelter. We are very grateful for your approach and have appreciated your support over the last 3 years as we have strived to improve animal welfare in our community.
We look forward to continuing working with you in the future.
Director of Operations

“A very small man can cast a very large shadow” – Lord Varys.
We need to band together – we need to work as one. We need to find our adult foster cats forever families. We have kings and queens, knights and renegades, lively and gentle felines. This August all our cats two years and older have a reduced adoption fee of $100 (vs. our standard fee of $175). Let’s make August 2017 a record breaking month for adoption.
Our adoption fee ensures that cats that come into our care receive the medical attention they need, are spayed or neutered, vaccinated (and receive a rabies vaccination if age appropriate). Our fee also includes six weeks of free pet insurance. If you are a resident of Toronto, the adoption fee also includes a one year cat license.
REMEMBER: When you adopt a kitty from Toronto Cat Rescue you save two lives; the one you adopt and the one you make room for!
