Cat Rescues

Adopt Me! Cat Rescue

Adopt Me! Cat Rescue is a registered charity.  Our small rescue runs completely on charity from people like you. We have caring volunteers who foster and help with fundraising. We do this for our love of animals and the need to make a difference in the lives of these cats and the loving people who adopt them.

All our rescues are vet checked, spayed/neutered (when they are of age), immunized and treated for fleas and ticks before they are placed up for adoption.

Animals in Need of a New Address

“Animals in Need of a New Address” is an informal group of individuals who got together in 2013 to take dogs out of very bad situations. That year, we placed about 25 companion animals.

We, as volunteers got to know each other very well, so we decided to move on and find a way to help other companion animals in difficult situations. We opted to help individual companion animals from the general public who need to be re-homed and are in difficult situations. Sometimes, we have companion animals under our wings that other rescues will not take because of behavioral or health issues. We usually have at the most 2 -3 companion animals in our care at the same time.

We also provide support to individuals who want to re-home their companion animals themselves. We guide them, ensuring they are aware of all obstacles in placing a companion animal privately. Cats in this area, have no rescue to go to if they are surrendered by their owner. We provide the owners who contact us, with all the support possible in order for them to be able to find a home for their cat(s). e.g. placing 7 cats from the same household in a couple of weeks because the family is loosing their home.

We are also involved in home visits with potential adopters; the transport of companion animals to rescues, the vet, foster persons and adopters’ homes; and providing temporary fosters to people who would otherwise have to surrender their animal because of illness, surgery, family situation, etc.

People also contact us to adopt companion animals. We guide them with the research on breeds, on how to decide which companion animal is best for them considering their lifestyle, we link them to the rescues who may have under their wing the type of companion animal they want to adopt.

We are honest and open with the owners, adopters and fosters. Sometimes we need to lower expectations. Sometimes, we encourage owners to do all they can to keep their companion animal. Sometimes we need to place the animals very quickly.

In 2017, we have reached a milestone 150 companion animals safe just in time for Canada 150th Birthday. Quite a feat considering we are at the most 2 individuals and we place companion animals, one at a time.

Cat A Match

Cat A Match prides itself in the care and adoption of mostly cats and some dogs. Prior to adoption all animals are altered, vaccinated & vet checked. Only after they are deemed healthy and assessed for their temperament do we make them available for adoption.

Joanne has an education in Behavior Science (human) and has done ongoing research & studied hands-on feline behavior which is a key factor in the adoption process in choosing the ‘right cat companion’, which is a major reason for abandonment.

Cat Rescue Network

Based on Ottawa, Ontario, Cat Rescue Network (CRN) is a non-profit, volunteer driven organization established in 1999.  We are committed to rescuing abandoned and feral cats overlooked by the city’s animal welfare services.  As we do not have a facility, all of the cats we rescue live with volunteers in their homes (foster families) until they are adopted.

Cat Rescue Network’s motto  is to “until there is none, save one”.  We live out this motto by responding to emergency situations and taking in cats off the street.  These cats go directly into foster care, volunteers’ homes, where they begin to receive the love and medical attention they deserve.

Country Cats Sanctuary

Here at “Country Cat Sanctuary” my aim is to find homes for the abandoned cats I rescue. Regardless of how long it takes, I will find each cat a new home with someone who will provide it with loving care and attention for the rest of its natural life.

When I place a cat in your home, I want to ensure that you and your cat will enjoy many happy years to-gether. However, if the adoption dosen’t work out (or if the adopter must give up the cat at any time) “Country Cat Sanctuary” will willingly take the cat back and find another suitable home.

All the cats are wormed, fixed and vaccinated. I know my cats well and guarentee them, if your not happy with your choice I insist you bring the cat back and I will happily return your adoption fee.

There is a small adoption fee for the cats to help cover some of the costs. This also helps me continue to help other cats.

Friends of Abandoned Pets

Who knew in 1992 when Friends of Abandoned Pets was officially established, that 24 years later our volunteers would still be helping cats and dogs in our community.

The amount of volunteer hours over the past 24 years has been staggering – and we’ve done it all: driving to help rescue a cat or dog in a dangerous situation; sitting out overnight with traps, trying to catch kittens, dogs and cats; giving advice related to the well-being of cats and dogs; taking part in major dog rescues; sitting with a traumatized cat or dog for hours and hours; medicating; force feeding; organizing dog walks, bake, book and garage sales and other fundraisers; reuniting lost pets with their owners; placing dogs and cats in permanent homes.

Even in the years when there were limited funds, and there were many of those, we were always able to help, in some way. Our philosophy has always been that while we can’t save every stray or abandoned cat or dog, we can make a difference in the lives of individual cats and dogs. And, we have been true to that philosophy throughout our existence.

We’re very proud of what we’ve accomplished in the past 24 years and are looking forward to celebrating our 25th anniversary in 2017.

Furry Tales Cat Rescue

Furry Tales is a foster based agency located in Smiths Falls Ontario.
Our primary goal is to assist cats (older and middle aged) who have been displaced, abandoned or at high risk of being euthanized in the Quebec pound system – an antiquated system that sees 75% of all cats intake euthanized within 2 weeks of arrival.

We work diligently to pull these cats to safety within our rescue and co-ordinate with an amazing group of transporters – Freedom Drivers Animal Rescue Transports.

We work in conjunction with other area rescues to ensure the most urgent cases are brought into care.

Rescuing animals is a never ending cycle and only with an amazing group of supporters can we succeed.

We rely on donations for funding as the adoption fees do not cover the total cost of vetting for each cat brought through the rescue.

We also conduct our own fundraisers such as Online Auctions, Pet Adoption Days, raffles and jewelry sales to ensure each cat brought into care is vet treated and brought to maximum health prior to adoption.

Westminster Pet Sanctuary

Westminster is a dedicated, hard working, registered charity. All of our members and volunteers are unpaid so 100% of every dollar donated goes towards the critter’s care. We do this because all creatures big and small deserve to know what love is and we do not mind showing them!

Unlike some other shelters, our animals are not kept in cages. In order to better socialize them – they live as members of our families either at the Sanctuary or in a foster home. By the time you adopt them they will have had LOTS of contact with not only people, but other cats, dogs, and various other creatures!

We are a 100% “no kill” Sanctuary and will only euthanize a pet if it is in unimaginable pain that can never be recovered from. This is a belief that we do not take lightly. Our Sanctuary has never euthanized an animal due to space limitations, money, illness, or age. If the animal does not find a home it stays with us.

Westminster needs committed MONTHLY donors to keep us going, please we beg of you to help us, in our work with only the wonderful special need animals, give as little as $5 a month, or anything you can afford,EVERY DOLLAR HELPS these special needs animals that need our help or will die
