Back from the brink: Buddy 

Colony cat Buddy was rushed to one of our veterinary partners, the  VETS Toronto Animal Hospital, in early December, severely dehydrated, battling a horrendous flea infestation, and suffering a mouth full of rotting teeth. After a week of IV fluids and major dental work, he is recovering in one of his feeders' homes.

Adopt me: Rocco

Comes with brother Frankie

After five years of adventuring, Rocco has lost a few teeth and now sports little fangs. What he hasn't lost is his desire for snuggles, pats, grooming, and more snuggles. Rocco and Frankie, who has no teeth left—not even fangs!—have been around the block, and will need to get to know their new furever family before soon rewarding them with loads of cute, cuddly cat love.

Winter Feeding Quick Tips
  1. Increase food portions to help cats conserve energy.
  2. Prevent wet food from freezing by avoiding metal bowls. Protect bowls with styrofoam or spray insulation foam.
  3. Warm up wet food and water before serving it.

Off the Streets

Jasper Jellybean and Rabbit

Born into a community colony, Jasper Jellybean recently managed to fall down into a storm window. The woman who owned the house opened the window and little Jasper fell into her basement. About a week later, she was able to trap and get him into an ACR foster home. Rabbit is from the same colony as Jasper, and joined him in the foster home a week or so later for assessment and care.

Thank You!
A big thank you to Julia Miller and the wonderful people at the Westway Animal Clinic for raising $175 for ACR through a holiday donation box.
An extra thanks to Julia for her part in the catnip crafting trio that includes Lana Melanson and Brenda Gibson. Their gorgeous purr pads, knots and “ravioli” squares flew off the shelves at the Tranzac Christmas Artisans' Gift Fair.

Happy Tail: Nero and Dav

Two separate rescues, now a bonded pair

Nero (formerly Niles) and Dav (formerly Frasier) were brought indoors through two ACR rescue missions. Niles was trapped just in the nick of time before a large crane was brought to the construction site where he was living. Frasier was part of a backyard colony in Scarborough. To help these little guys adjust, they were fostered together by Joanne. And then along came Kirby, taking Italian lessons from an ACR volunteer and in search of a bonded pair.
