Kitten season’s early arrival 6 weeks ago truly caught us off guard … so we urgently need your help. We have recently taken in many sick kittens, including 4 with Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP)– which until fairly recently was a “death sentence” – but now there is a successful treatment available for this virus but the medication alone costs approx $3,500 per cat!


Due to the unprecedented number of kittens and cats in the shelter awaiting their adoptive homes, our spay/neuter bills, ongoing vet care bills and daily essential costs – from food, litter and supplies to gas and hydro — have been overwhelming. However, for 35 years, we have always believed lives are precious and ALL deserve a second chance. Won’t YOU please help US help THEM by making a financial donation to our shelter today? No donation is too small and 100% of all donations go directly to the purr-ecious ones we save. Tax receipts are issued for all donations.





and PLEASE spread the word. The busiest season has just begun !!!


was donated and painted by Dolphin Diemer with the accompanying note below:

“With this gift I honour The North Toronto “No-Kill” Cat Rescue my painting of “Snowball ” which represents the many different types of Cats and situations that come into your no-kill Rescue. With lots of love from you and your volunteers, these lucky fur-balls can piece together one of their nine lives.”

After non-stop cat rescue, NTCR has finally found our fur-ever home in York Region! The only No-kill, No-cage shelter in the GTA for 34 continuous years. We are a volunteer-run, nonprofit, registered charity committed to rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing the ailing and abused stray cats and kittens in our community. We provide them with a safe haven – a place where love lives.

Like the old axiom “so near, yet so far,” we need your support to continue without any government funding – ever. Every dollar is gratefully appreciated and is used for food, never-ending vet bills, litter and to provide warmth, safety, and shelter. We urgently need to raise money for cat care, as well as the expansion of our new building to provide a sanctuary for more cats.



We’re reaching out to YOU … Paw-lease support our fundraising activities and helps us source contractors and building materials.


If you prefer to donate by cheque: Make it payable to North Toronto Cat Rescue and mail to 28 John Stiver Cres. Markham, ON. L3R 9A8 (Tax receipts are provided for all donations). Thank you!
