Adopt me: Katie

Ready to be home for Christmas

Katie is a calm two-year-old lady who was just recently invited, and gratefully accepted, into ACR foster care and out of the oncoming cold weather. She loves being brushed and petted by her humans, is comfortable with other animals once she's had a minute, and has excellent litter box habits. Soft, stately, and sociable, Katie is a real catch!

Ruben finally trapped!

Keeping hungry tummies full

feed hungry cats

Every day of the year in every kind of weather, ACR volunteers feed vulnerable homeless cats in 19 managed colonies across Toronto. Without this daily feeding, many cats would simply not eat. Just $35 will supply a colony caretaker stewarding a smaller colony with wet and dry food for one month.

Donate $35 to feed a colony for an entire month

Happy Tail: Leah and Mag

Adventures with two sisters 

Leah and Mag were two adventurous kittens, now cats, born to the legendary "Batmom"—the east end cat who forever eludes ACR's TNR teams. Follow their journey from the streets, through a veteran ACR foster carer's home, and on to their furever home with Dan.

Need a winter shelter for an outdoor cat?
Toronto Street Cats will be selling shelters built in their workshops TODAY and on Saturday December 15th but you must order in advance. Shelters are $15 each and you can pay in cash on the day of pick-up. You can usually pick up some free straw too but you will need to bring a bag. More info here. Toronto Street Cats winter shelters
