We are a small group of committed volunteers with animal care and rescue experience. Many of us have jobs outside of this rescue (but not necessarily outside of animal care). We spend hours of our lives to make sure that we are doing what we can do to make a difference.
We take cats that are abandoned or born in colonies that animal control for the area they are from does not wish to accept or keep. We have taken cats that other rescues cannot place due to location, age, colour, or quantity. We will take owner surrenders if other options available are unwilling to accept and owners have not been able to rehome. In short, we take in cats that have few to no other options, but only when we have space. There are dozens currently on the waitlist that we have committed a future placement if one is not found before that time.
We are not a rescue that is using our resources to help individual owners find or pay for vet care or food. We cannot provide temporary housing for a pet, and our fosters are full of cats that had no other options. For many of the cats in our care, death was the other choice. We will treat a cat for medical issues, and assist a cat adjusting their behaviour to give them more options to find a new home. We have some fosters who have chosen to take on cats that need palliative care, who have a terminal diagnosis and will never be adopted. When nothing more can be done, euthanasia is the practice of intentionally ending a life to relieve pain and suffering. We do not make that choice lightly and at least two of our board members will be in agreement before we take that step.
