Helping cats to not be adopted

Toronto Cat Rescue has started a new initiative aimed at keeping cats in their homes. The rational is to try and stop pets being dumped — on the street or in shelters — or re-homed for behavioural issues. With that goal in mind, TCR has set up the Behaviour Helpline. It’s run by a small group of specially trained volunteers who can work with people on their cat’s behavioural issues and try to keep cats at home. It’s a free service for anyone — not just Toronto Cat Rescue adopters.

Combined with our Post-Adoption Support and the Food Assistance I think our Executive is coming up with some great programmes to help cats before they really need us!


About Adventures in Cat Fostering

I am a cat fosterer for Toronto Cat Rescue. I also have two cats of my own, Jonesy, the black and white, and Murphy, the brown tabby, in the photo. Both were adopted from Toronto Cat Rescue.

    When I went to the NE Fed Conference, there was a session on that which I went to. The presenter said there is a need, but there isn’t an overwhelming demand. It is one more awesome tool in the toolbox of helping cats.
