NTCR Needs Your Help to Find a New Home!!!

“We Need A New Home”

North Toronto Cat Rescue has the opportunity to purchase a small piece of land in the Aurora area to construct a new shelter. We are looking for a construction company who could help with this project. If you are able to help please contact Donna at (905)758-2287




NTCR Petition – Now Closed!!!

Sign NTCR Petition!!!



MAR 14, 2021 — 

Our Petition is now closed and we were overwhelmed with over 76,100 signatures, comments, and support.  We are so very grateful to each and everyone who signed, commented, reached out, and shared our Plea.   We personally found it extremely sad that we received not one response from any elected official – the Premier, the Mayor of Vaughan or any of the Councillors despite having left many messages asking for their support and as they are aware,  our “House of Love” now remains empty.

We and our Realtors have been diligent in searching for a new shelter.  Once again we are asking for your help should you be aware of any available space –  either temporary or permanent. And we continue to need your financial support to make it happen.

Although our cats and kittens remain safe in foster care, there are so many calls for help on a daily basis and we desperately would like to be there as we have been for the last 33 years. Thank you ALL once again for also caring.
