Welcome A Cat Into Your Family

Feel the love this summer, and all year long! Please welcome a cat (or two!) into your family this weekend. Saturday, June 10th to Sunday, June 11th amazing cats will be in-store waiting to meet you – cats of all ages, personalities and colours. Join the fun and visit one of our five Pet Valu locations in Toronto and the GTA to adopt a beautiful cat.

Special Adopt-A-Thon Fee Only: $100 for cats over 8 months of age (vs. $175). For cats 8+ years old the adoption fee will be waived, in lieu of an adoption fee of the adopter’s choice. The adoption fee at the adopt-a-thon is payable by cash only. This ensures that the 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 6 weeks of free pet insurance. If you are a resident of Toronto, the adoption fee also includes a 1 year cat license.

Help Rescue Cats From The Comfort of Your Home!

Volunteer Adoption Administrator Needed: coverage for Thursday 3:00-9:00pm.

Our adoption lines are busy – some months handling more than 500 inquiries.

  • Checking voicemail and email messages periodically throughout your assigned shift.
  • Logging inquiries into our database (Smartsheet).
  • Forwarding incoming messages to the adoption counselor assigned to the foster home the cat resides in.
  • Gathering more information from potential adopters via phone or email if required.

The ideal volunteer will have the following skill sets and experience:

  • Highly organized and able to handle multiple inquiries at a time
