We Need Volunteers Like YOU for TNR!
The formation of the Coalition has meant that caretakers in Toronto receive the assistance they need to trap, neuter, and return colonies in their community. To better support our community of caretakers, the Coalition is seeking volunteers to help with our mandate. Training and mentorship is provided for new volunteers.
For more detailed information on the trap-neuter-return process please click here.
There are a variety of tasks that we currently need assistance with, including:
If you’re an experienced cat-person, please consider fostering a frightened cat or kitten who needs to be socialized, or re-socialized, after a rough time. Remember that YOU can make all the difference in a homeless kitty’s life!
And if you have no previous cat experience, you’ll be matched with a low-maintenance feline friend and provided with all the information you’ll need.
Assisting at the Recovery Centre (in Scarborough) or providing your own space for cats to recover: Again, training will be provided for those interested in volunteering at the Recovery Centre.
For those interested in providing recovery space – the space would need to be temperature controlled to provide a comfortable environment that traps/carriers could be brought to for the cats to recover from sterilization surgery. Caretakers would visit the space twice daily to care for the cats – give food/water and clean. The cats would need to recover for a period of 1 to 7 days depending on the cat. They would then be removed and returned to their colony.
