A letter from Jack



My name is Jack. I was rescued by Donna off the street and have been staying at the cat shelter with 160 other rescued cats. The volunteers treat us really well here. We get food and receive the needed care for us to get well again so that we would be ready for a furrr-ever home. Lately, I see that Donna looks troubled. I heard that the cat shelter will need to be relocated soon by June 2017 to give way for real estate development in the area. We need funding to relocate and your support is much needed. Please help Donna continue this great cause that she started 28 years ago by making a donation today.


P.S. Adopt and don’t shop! The cat shelter is open daily, come play with us and check us out! Maybe you will find one of us fitted to be a new addition to your family.


Patiently waiting for my cat parent to arrive,

Our Story


North Toronto Cat Rescue (NTCR) is a registered, non-profit, 100% volunteer-run organization in its 28th year of continuous community service. It was established by Donna Cox, whose ambition was to take vulnerable cats off the street and bring them into a secure environment, where they live in complete safety until they find their permanent home.


Over the years, more than 2,400 cats have benefited from the services of NTCR and are now living the lives they deserve as part of a loving family. These cats found hope and a permanent home after having experienced varying degrees of hardship in the hostile street environment or in the hands of uncaring owners.


Approximately 160 cats are still living at the shelter today, away from the horrors of the street and the harsh lives they previously led. With the shelter relocation deadline approaching in June 2017 to give way for real estate development, these cats will face a bleak and uncertain future without your support. Please donate today to support us in finding a new home for the cats in need.
