North Toronto Cat Rescue (NTCR) is a registered, non-profit, 100% volunteer-run organization in its 30th year of continuous community service. It was established by Donna Cox, whose goal was to take vulnerable cats off the street and bring them into a secure environment, where they could live in complete safety until they found their permanent home.
Over the years, more than 3,000 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.
