Another Herculean effort as Toronto Cat Rescue steps up to the plate again!
I’ve known about this for a week or so and even though it’s public now there are still elements we’ve been asked to keep to ourselves. It’s one of those terrible, out-of-control, no-single-fault-situations. The product of a lack of resources, lack of proper education on spaying and neutering, systemic lack of cooperation among organizations; a group trying to do their best and getting caught up in bad circumstances.
The sheer number of cats involved mean health issues from minor URIs to more serious life-threatening infections.
I don’t know if I’ll foster any of these cats — probably — but I’ve met a few of them at the Volunteer Centre. They are mostly young and incredibly social! Whatever problems the overwhelmed shelter may have had with resources, they’ve done a fantastic job with socialization! We have an adoption event already planned in February and are hoping a lot of them will be adopted then.
Both our Recovery Centre and the Volunteer Centre will be pushed to their limits. Not to mention our bank account! If you’re inspired to donate, thank you! Just $50 pays for a health check and vaccinations but any amount is appreciated.
Again, I can’t say enough good about the strength and determination of the executive of Toronto Cat Rescue. Their commitment is inspiring and it’s a pleasure to follow their lead!
