The Toronto Cat Rescue (TCR) is a registered, no-kill charity powered by volunteers. Their mission is to rescue and find homes for abandoned, sick or injured cats from situations of abuse, neglect or imminent euthanasia.
Their vision is for Toronto to be a city in which no adoptable cat is killed and rescue organizations such as Toronto Cat Rescue are no longer needed.
TCR relies on volunteers to foster cats in their homes until a cat lover adopts them. Having a network of foster homes allows every cat in their care to be part of someone’s home.
It gives a rescued cat a chance to adapt to living with a family, sometimes with other cats, dogs and/or children.
On average they have over 300 cats in foster care at any given time.
As you can imagine, caring for these cats is expensive. Not only do they need to be fed, there are medical expenses (spaying, neutering, injuries, and medicine).
For this purpose, TCR organizes an annual Bowl-a-thon. Participating cat lovers turn to family and friends and even complete strangers for a donation. All donations are welcome, whether it’s $100 or $1, every single bit of help is appreciated.
I remember the first Bowl-a-thon I played. Only a handful of people showed up, but one of them was LeAnn Rimes and we raised about $3,000. Today, eleven years later the number of participants has grown significantly and in 2014, we raised close to $20,000. This year, we’re hoping to do even better.

Remember, any amount is welcome, but for $20 or more you receive a tax receipt.
Thank you in advance.
