torontocatrescu. Let's get Marg adopted! She is a sweet lady who does require (simple)

Let's get Marg adopted! She is a sweet lady who does require (simple) medication and lots of love. Spread the word - she is just so darn cute! Spayed, Vaccinated, born March 14, 2011 Marg is a lovely social lady who is friendly, cute and very sweet. She enjoys lying in the sun, being petted and hanging out with her people. When you are home, Marg likes to keep an eye on what you are up to - either from directly at your side or close enough to spy on you. She greets her foster parents at the door after work, and follows them around for attention and pets. Marg loves to spend the night sleeping with you. At her current foster home, she has a designated cat bed on her human’s bed that she loves to sleep in. She is so sweet! Marg loves pets and head kisses. She has the quietest little purr and it is wondrous when you hear it. Marg really is a charmer; at mealtime she makes sure to rub up against her foster mom’s legs to thank her before she digs into her meal. Marg is a bit on the heavy side. While she is still losing weight, she needs a bit of help to clean the hard to reach areas and really appreciates your assistance - she gives a little lick to say thank you. This pretty girl eats a special diet and is on a single medication for some skin allergies. It's easy and inexpensive to manage, and Marg doesn't mind taking her medication once every other day. Her foster family has fallen head-over-heels for this girl, and they know you will also fall in love with her sweet nature and lovely personality. #catsofinstagram #marg #browntabby #foreverfriends #gorgeous #adoptdontshop #christmasmiracle

Toronto Cat R

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.

Is your home missing a snuggly, adorable feline? Dani would love to be welcomed into your family! Neutered, Vaccinated, Good with other cats, dogs and kids! Born October 10, 2017. Dani is cat that is affectionate, playful, easygoing and good company. Some of his favourite things to do are to be petted, follow his foster mom around the house and watch her work, look out the window, and play. Dani’s prized toys include pompoms, string toys, and almost anything he can get his paws on! If you play with Dani using a string toy, he will grab it with his teeth and run away to hide it. A huge lover of being petted, Dani is not shy to ask people to pet him once he knows them. He will sometimes even just lie down on his side or back, purr and look cute to try and get pets. (Who can resist his cute-ness?! No one.)

Handsome Mr. Business (Mr. B for short) is a big handsome fella with particular tastes. He is seeking his forever family. Are you a fit? Do you know someone who is? Mr. Business would love to have a family before Christmas day. Neutered, Vaccinated, Declawed, born August 24, 2012. More of an introvert, meeting new people isn't really his thing. He likes to take his time to get to know you; he’s a quality over quantity type of fella. Mr. Business takes some time to warm up to his human - but once he does, he’s a very sweet and funny weirdo! He really does have a unique goofy personality. Mr. B tends to communicate by chewing on his human. If you don't pay attention to what he's trying to tell you, he'll definitely nom on your hand to try and convince you to understand his meaning. This behaviour might upset a child, so he’d be best in an adult home. He’s got great litter box habits and stays away from plants and other things some cats love to nibble on. Sometimes he likes to run around and jump up on the couch or bed to hang out, but the majority of the time you’ll find him lounging in the middle of the room or looking out the window at the passing birds. As is the case with many declawed cats, Mr. Business would likely do best in a home where he is the solo fur-baby. He would be perfect for someone who is willing to give him the time and patience he needs to relax and feel at home. It is so rewarding earning the trust of a rescue cat, and this guy is more that worth that effort. Just look at that adorable face! Adopt him today: https://torontocatrescue.ca/adopt-a-cat/ #MrBusiness #AdopDontShop #ForeverCat

On this #ThankYouThursday 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! Donate: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/m/38448/donation We desperately need your help to rescue 100 cats at immediate risk before Christmas. We can’t do these rescues without you. 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. Please consider sponsoring 1 cat for $125. It’s a small price to pay for saving a very precious life! ***PLUS: A longtime volunteer has stepped up to match every dollar donated (up to $20,000!) That means every dollar that you donate counts as two. This incredibly generous gift will help us reach our stretch goal even faster.

#VolunteersNeeded: Intake Coordinator (Day Shift). Being a part of the Intake team means you are on the front lines, actively saving lives each day. This role is as challenging as it is rewarding. TCR’s rescue mandate is to intake cats from the three Toronto Animal Services locations (East, West, North) and other shelter partners when space is available. We will accept kittens from the public under the Kitten Support Program (KSP). N.B. We do not take in stray cats or owner surrenders As a Daytime Intake Coordinator you will support the Intake Lead with the incoming requests from TAS shelters during the hours of 10am to 3pm Monday to Friday. This may mean assisting in the intake of urgent requests of cats to vet clinics and/or foster homes.
