Toronto Cat Rescue

This “Thank You Thursday” we are grateful for YOU

Incredible…that’s the word that keeps coming to mind to describe the results of our Giving Tuesday appeal. Thanks to all of you we raised over $30,000! Such an incredible result and we will be able to rescue and rehabilitate even more cats because of your overwhelming generosity. Veterinary bills are by far our biggest expense, and this amazing amount will go towards these costs.

We are moving full steam ahead with the latest Quebec Rescue. Keep an eye on your in-box for information on the date the cats will be arriving in Toronto. We are always looking for new foster homes to help with these urgent cases, so keep that in mind as well. Apply to be a foster home

In my short time here I have been amazed by the dedication that our volunteers and supporters have to Toronto Cat Rescue and cats and kittens we save. None of which we could do without you.

So, on this Thank You Thursday, let me say how grateful I am to each of you and to thank you once again for ensuring that we are able to rescue these cats and kittens before the holidays.

Tuesday is for Giving

It’s #GivingTuesdayCA and we are launching a campaign to raise $6,250 before midnight tonight in order to fund an urgent rescue of 50 cats from the over-crowded SPA Quebec shelter in Beauceville. Their shelter is once again overflowing with adoptable cats and kittens and they have called on TCR for help before the Christmas holiday. But we can’t do this rescue without you.

Please donate today!

QCCAT1For 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 needs and some will need to be spayed or neutered. We need to raise a minimum of $6,250 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!

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

Giving Tuesday3Time 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 Giving Tuesday, please help us raise our goal of $6,250 to help give 50 cats and kittens a second chance to find a loving, forever home.

#GivingTuesdayCA 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!
