Do you love cats?
Are you unable to adopt a cat from the Refuge?
Are you unable to act as a foster family to a cat awaiting adoption?
Sponsorship could be for you!
Should you sponsor a cat, or a project?
There are many different types of sponsorship. You can sponsor a cat or a project.
Sponsoring a cat involves contributing to:
The basic needs of a cat rescued by the Refuge while he or she is living in a foster home (food, litter, deworming, vaccination, and spaying or neutering). You can sponsor a cat either for the duration of his or her stay with a foster family, or for a shorter period of time. You would be contributing to the cost of feeding and caring for the cat while he or she awaits adoption. Your sponsorship would end once the cat is adopted.
The specialized veterinary treatmentsrequired by a cat whose state of health necessitates tests, teeth cleaning, surgery, and/or short-term medications. Your sponsorship would end once the cat is adopted.
The purchase of long-term medications (insulin, antivirals, antibiotics) needed by cats suffering from illnesses such as diabetes or AIDS, and whose chances of finding an adoptive family are slim as a result.
PENDING REQUEST: Zeus monthly donation
Sponsoring a project involves providing funding for projects such as:
Campaign to spay and neuter homeless cats
Despite the Refuge’s efforts to find a home for all cats, the number of homeless cats that can be found in the streets and laneways of our city is striking. And as time goes by, the number of homeless cats continues to increase.
Thanks to the sponsorship of people like you, we have taken on the ambitious project of spaying or neutering as many cats as possible. Homeless cats often suffer mistreatment at the hands of people who do not share your love of cats and/or are intolerant of the habit unsterilized cats have of marking their territory (the smell is certainly unpleasant!). In lending your financial support to this project, you would be helping to limit the number of homeless cats and to prevent their mistreatment.
Campaign to distribute information on caring for cats, spaying and neutering, etc. Your sponsorship would contribute to the costs of creating, printing, and distributing informational material such as pamphlets and advertorials.
Becoming a sponsor
As a sponsor to one of the Refuge’s cats, you will receive a photo and description of the cat you are sponsoring, and information on where he or she was found, his or her state of health, the medical treatments that he or she has been given or will need, etc.
You are warmly invited to come visit your protected on adoption days. If you choose to do so, you will be able to see the positive results of your sponsorship for yourself.
You will receive an official tax receipt for your contribution in early year. Receipts are usually sent out at the end of February.
To become a sponsor, go to our Donations page and dedicate your donation at the cat that you want to sponsoring.
