Our mission

 

Dear Animal Lover,

Thank you for visiting our website! As a Canadian not-for-profit organization, our mission is to raise funds for animal rescues in Ontario and Quebec. Since 2012, we have raised $20,000 to help rescues buy food and supplies, pay for vet bills, and implement a trap neuter-and-spay program for cats.

Our campaigns and events include fundraisers in Montreal and Toronto, the Quebec Animal Rescuer of the Year Award, a Be Kind to Animals pin you can purchase with a donation online (and also receive a certificate of appreciation).

7 Questions with Toronto Cat Rescue

Executive Director: BELINDA VANDERSLUIS

Interview by Allan Tong (photos: Jenn Wilson)

In 1994, a group of volunteers banded together to help Toronto's feral cat population and strays. Toronto Cat Rescue grew as other organizations formed also to help ferals. TCR's executive director, Belinda Vandersluis (above), explains how her rescue, one of Canada's largest, has evolved.

 

What is TCR's mission?
To rescue and find homes for abandoned, sick or injured cats from abuse, neglect or imminent euthanasia. We take care of cats having a hard time at a shelter or who need extra support to become an adoptable cat one day. Cats can be sick, shy or scared. With our network of foster homes, we can take time to assess a cat, help it be more social, get it the veterinary and dental care it needs, and provide a loving home for as long as it takes until the cat is adopted. 

 

How is TCR organized?

We have a network of volunteers and foster homes, taking in about 2,800 cats per year primarily through our partnership with Toronto Animal Services (the municipal shelters), to support their initiative to eliminate the euthanasia of any healthy or treatable cat. We also have a large chapter in Kitchener-Waterloo, ON, helping cats from their local shelters and animal control services. When we have space in our program, shelters from Quebec and Ontario also reach out to us when they have overcrowding or face difficult situations Each cat in our program receives veterinary care, age-appropriate vaccinations, is spayed or neutered, and assessed to learn about their behaviour before they are adopted.
