Our mission: improve the lives of Toronto’s homeless cats by offering spay/neuter services, free for feral cats, and building overwintering shelters. We are also working to increase public awareness about Toronto’s homeless cat population and the importance of spay/neuter and trap/neuter/return (TNR).
We are part of the Toronto Feral Cat Coalition, working together to implement strategic TNR programs to sterilize Toronto’s feral cats, decrease shelter intake and reduce euthanasia rates.
Here were the bins which would soon be made into the cat shelters.
Insulation was cut for inside the bins.
The insulation was placed in the bins and then taped.
Thom then drilled entrance holes into the bins.
Then we started attaching the entrance tubing.
The bins were then ready for straw.
Notices were glued to the top of the lids.
The shelters are available to caretakers and colonies in need for $15 and refurbished ones are $5.
The Humane Society donated food for anyone needing cat colonies.
There were 44 volunteers today and we broke a record ... we made 172 shelters (apparently the last record was 167 shelters built in December 2013)! Wow!
