Wine Cat

The Toronto Feral Cat TNR Coalition is thrilled to announce this exciting new event in support of our mission to improve the lives of feral cats through strategic Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) programs and to address the numbers of homeless and feral cats living on the streets. Our Meowsquerade is taking place Friday, October 17, 2014 at St. Lawrence Hall’s ‘The Great Hall’. This unique event is an opportunity for businesses and concerned individuals to experience the emotion, excitement and joy that comes with working collectively for the betterment of the community.

Approximately 100,000 cats live on the streets of Toronto. They are known as feral cats (or “community cats”) and are diligently
cared for by concerned citizens called colony caretakers. The only humane and effective way to reduce the community cat population is through a TNR program.

 

We rely on donations, fundraising, corporate sponsorships and extensive volunteer support to maintain our support for the community. All proceeds raised from the Meowsquerade event will be used for four specific projects.

To keep the Recovery Centre operational. The Recovery Centre is a safe, warm place for cats to recuperate after they’ve been spayed and neutered.

Volunteers keep them clean and fed and caretakers return to pick them up, thankful for the much-needed service.

To start a vet care fund for emergencies. Life on the streets can be difficult, and some cats require more than a simple spay or neuter.

Some need dental work; some have deep lacerations; some require tail amputations.

Supporting caretakers who already do so much for community cats is a service the Coalition is striving to provide.

To build “cat condos”, a more permanent wooden shelter to house community cats, as an alternative to smaller, plastic tote shelters.

These “cat condos” are more durable and less prone to vandalism.

To support the Trapping Task Force, a handful of volunteers who assist caretakers with trapping cats in preparation for their clinic appointments.

Some elderly or novice caretakers can find the process difficult, if not impossible due to the physical demands of trapping.

Our dedicated volunteers drive to all areas of the City to ensure cats are trapped properly and transported to their appointments on time.
