100 Cat Lives To Be Saved By Toronto Cat Rescue This #GivingTuesday!

Sharing is caring!

After writing a story about this amazing rescue back in May of 2019, their newest–and again another massive–undertaking, was no surprise. Toronto Cat Rescue is stepping up to help another rescue in Quebec. This time though….the goal is to help save 100 cat lives in one day; which just happens to be on #GivingTuesday! So when I received their press release, I was happy to help spread the word.

TORONTO CAT RESCUE IS SAVING 100 LIVES for #GivingTuesday!

TORONTO CAT RESCUE IS RESCUING 100 HOMELESS CATS FROM IMMINENT RISK AT A SHELTER IN RURAL QUEBEC for #GivingTuesday, December 3rd, 2019.
 
Just as Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season. Toronto Cat Rescue is a volunteer-driven, virtual network of over 400 foster homes. [TCR] saves more than 2,800 cats each year from imminent risk of euthanasia. We partner with municipal animal shelters and other rescues to take cats that have little to no hope of a happy, healthy life.
 
Each cat is given all the medical and behavioural care required, spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. And [they’re] loved in a foster home before adoption into their furr-ever home. This takes a HUGE amount of money and volunteer resources.

YOUR DONATION SAVES LIVES AND THE 100 CATS WILL BE SAVED THANKS TO YOUR #GivingTuesday GENEROSITY!

As you know, we regular help a large, rural shelter in Quebec when they become overwhelmed. Too many cats with not enough homes to adopt them. Sometimes we get asked – why this shelter, why bring cats in from out of Province? The answer is simple. It’s so these cats and kittens have a better chance of adoption. And a chance at getting the life they deserve.
If we don’t step up to help, the alternative for these cats is they will languish in the shelter, mosy likely get sick, and potentially be euthanized to create space. [Space] for the endless number of stray, unspayed and unneutered cats that are brought to the shelter daily. For these cats and kittens, we are their last chance.

Not only that, an amazingly generous donor of theirs is matching the #GivingTuesday donations up to $20,000! 

Thanks to a transportation grant of nearly $15,000 from PetSmart Charities of Canada, the cost of transportation will be subsidized. [Thus] allowing us to focus on the medical costs and care of each and every cat saved.
 
$125 covers the cost of spay/neuter, vaccinations and microchip for one cat. Most cats require additional veterinary care, including senior cats who often require expensive dental surgery.

Toronto Cat Rescue wants to ensure the safe harbour of these precious lives. And with your help, we can save them all. On this #GivingTuesday, please help us with a gift to help give 100 cats and kittens a second chance to find a loving, forever home.

We won’t walk away knowing these cats need our foster and adoption program for a second chance of a better life. And we won’t walk away knowing these cats will suffer. #GivingTuesday is just one day. But we fight every day of every year to rescue and find homes for abandoned, sick or injured cats.

Thank you for all your support!
