Feral cats of Toronto have a safe, warm place to recover after they have been spayed / neutered! The Toronto Feral Cat Coalition continues to offer the community a free space in Scarborough to recover feral cats.  But we need help!

We need approximately $10,000 to run the Recovery Center for the year - and that's not including utilities.  A much-needed dumpster service, alone, costs $3,600.

Here is our average monthly breakdown:

Rent - $169
Dumpster - $300
Insurance - $100
Internet & Phone - $50
Cleaning supplies - $100
Cat food - $200
Litter & puppy pads - $100

You can help us make this happen!

So if you have a few hours to spare, volunteer with any one of our Coalition member groups - www.torontoferalcatcoalition.ca 

And please share news about this important campaign, for the animals.

THANK YOU!!!


Background:

The Toronto Feral Cat Coalition is a coalition of municipal animal services, humane societies, rescue groups and advocacy organizations, working collectively to improve the lives of feral cats through strategic Trap-Neuter-Return programs and to address the numbers of homeless and feral cats living on the streets.

In the spring of 2010, Toronto Animal Services announced the opening of a new spay/neuter clinic and the start of a free monthly feral cat sterilization programme. This amazing breakthrough was the catalyst that formed the Toronto Feral Cat Coalition. Later in 2010, the Toronto Humane Society also began offering free spay / neuter clinics for feral cats. A third group, Toronto Street Cats, also provides free services.

Since our formation, we have sterilized over 10,000 cats for free!

The Impact:

As far as we can tell, our Recovery Centre is the first of its kind in North America.  Feedback from colony caretakers pushed the Coalition to respond to the need for a space to recover cats.  Many caretakers live in apartments with no room to keep a cat for 3-4 days post-surgery.

And when there aren't cats recovering at the Centre, we use the space for caretaker workshops and volunteer training.

Please - for the cats - help us keep this much-needed space operational.
