We are a private, no kill cat adoption facility located in south-central Ontario, Canada. We are a registered Canadian Charity. Our “Cat House” is home to approximately 60 cats who are permitted to roam free within the shelter. Our cats need never fear euthanasia, and can stay with us as long as it takes to find the right adoptive home.
Our shelter is run by a very dedicated group of volunteers. We have no paid staff. Our funding comes from adoptions, surrender fees, our own volunteer fundraising events and private donations from individuals. We have no government or township assistance.
We mainly focus on adult cat adoptions, and kittens are usually available from about May through December. All our cats & kittens are blood tested negative for Feline Leukemia (FELV), and Feline Immune Deficiency Virus (FIV). They are vaccinated, dewormed, treated for fleas and ear mites, and are spayed or neutered.
If you would like more information about our shelter, or would like to adopt a new family friend, or would like to volunteer or make a financial contribution, please contact us.
CanadaHelps offers a one-stop shop for donating. You can donate using Visa, MasterCard or American Express credit cards, Interac and PayPal.
On their website, CanadaHelps states that they have a spotless 14 year record for safe and secure payment processing and instant tax receipting.

Life has not been easy for Franny so far … she is an insecure cat who reacts poorly to new situations and new people.
As a kitten, Franny settled into her new home with a young couple and was content there unless strangers visited the house. Then she was on guard and would try and chase the visitors our of her territory! This was managed by her owners by simply putting her in a room when company was over. Problem solved. Until the children arrived. Franny slowly accepted the 2 children into her domain, but as the kids grew and started having friends over, Franny’s aggression increased. She was spending most of her time locked away in the basement, and her owners felt that this was no life for her. It was clear that Franny needed a quiet home with no children.
As you can imagine, life in our shelter is no picnic for Franny. Although we do our best to make her comfortable, she is stressed out by the constant flow of people through her territory and the presence of all the other cats.
Franny would be best in a home with no other cats, dogs or kids – just her, being your one and only.
Franny will need a very patient and understanding person to bring her out of her shell and earn her trust. We believe that person is out there …. somewhere. Could it be you?
