Toronto Cat Rescue

50 Cats need our URGENT help!

Earlier this week, the Quebec shelter that we have helped out with many times before reached out with an urgent need. They are unable to offer refuge to all the unwanted, abandoned and homeless cats who have entered their shelter during COVID-19 shutdowns over the past few months.

50 friendly and highly adoptable cats are at RISK. They simply do not have the resources to keep up, and may need to make decisions that no one wants to.

We simply can not say no to helping.

Most of the cats coming will need to be spayed or neutered, will need vaccinations updated and we know from experience that unknown medical emergencies will happen.

Can you help us get these cats to Toronto?

We must help cats like Lucy, pictured below, who deserve a chance at a forever home. She came into the shelter in terrible condition, desperate for help. Luckily, she has gotten the love and immediate care she needed and now she needs our help to find a forever home. She has overcome so much, can you help make sure she gets her happy ending?

Donate today –

Together we will care for these little souls and make sure they get everything they need to get adopted into their forever homes!

Thank you all for your ongoing support – we simply could not do it without you!

Thank you for a great virtual bowl-a-thon!

Yesterday, August 8th, we held our 16th Annual Bowl-a-thon…but this year it was a little different!

Due to social distancing rules, we were not able to gather in a traditional bowling alley, so we decided to go virtual! We challenged our participants to get creative and “bowl from home” and they definitely stepped up to the challenge!

Some bowled on the beach, some in their backyards and some with their Wii’s. And a few kittens and cats even got in on the action. Even James, our oldest bowler who just turned 90 (!!) joined in the fun.

Donations are still coming in and will be open for another couple of weeks, but right now we have raised almost $17,000 which is a lot of spay, neuters and vet care!

Thank you to:

  • Everyone who has donated and supported the event
  • All of our participants for joining the fun and raising much needed funds
  • Our sponsors Royal Canin, PurrPlan and VCA Canada

Rescue in Action Underway


It’s hard to believe that only two days after responding to a call for help from North Bay, we are once again asking our community to help us as we respond to call for help from our shelter partner, Toronto Animal Services

These cats are in desperate need of the kind of care that we are best at, and that our foster homes excel at. From thin coats, suffering from URI’s, ear mites and generally in poor body condition – help can not come soon enough. Time is of the essence to get these sweeties into our loving foster homes.


It’s not easy for us to come back to you so soon, but simply put – we need your help. This many cats, in care for what most likely will be months, vet visits and medications – will take any reserves we have. We would be grateful for a donation of any amount.


It takes a village to respond to numbers this large and we thank our foster homes in Kitchener-Waterloo for stepping up to get the first 50 into our care and for all the rescue groups in Toronto that are opening doors are well.

Thank you
