Gift Card Raffle

Gift Card Raffle

We hope everyone is staying safe during these very difficult times. As you know, we are unable to process adoptions right now. We are not receiving any revenue at this time. Yet, we still have many cats and kittens in foster homes who will need vet care as soon as we are able to see vets again.

We are having an online, no contact, gift card raffle in order to generate funds for our vet bills. The single prize is all nine gifts cards with a total value of $250. Cards included: Tim Hortons, Shoppers Drug Mart, Shell Gas, Petro Canada, PetSmart, Pizza Nova, LCBO and Longos! All gift cards are worth $25, with the exception of Longos, which is worth $50! 

TICKETS are $5 each or 5 for $20.

They will be available through EMT (Info@ninthlifecatrescue.org) or through Canada Helps (credit cards accepted). Gift cards will either be delivered or sent by mail.

Thank you for your support! We wish you and your loved ones health and happiness at this very stressful time.

Playtime

Playtime

Since many of us are self-isolating with our pets, enjoy spending time playing with or even training them. Pets pick up on our stress so playtime will help settle them (and you).

Here are some links to get you thinking.

COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Update

In order to do our part to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, we have moved all of our cats from our adoption centres into foster homes. The health and safety of our volunteers, their families and our cats is our main priority right now. Without our volunteers, we are unable to do what we do every day.

Ninth Life Cat Rescue is funded entirely by donations. We rely on your generous donations to pay our vet bills. Without adoptions, we will have no incoming revenue. Yet, the need to help pregnant, stray or surrendered cats continues with numerous requests for help coming in daily.

We know this is a difficult time for everyone. However, any help is appreciated. Monetary donations, regardless of amount, are greatly appreciated. If you can spare any amount, donations can be sent to: https://ninthlifecatrescue.org/make-a-donation/

We will be posting profiles and bios of our cats in foster homes and when it is safe to do so, we will move them back into our adoption centres.

To all of our supporters, please stay safe. Practice social distancing, stay home to avoid contact with others and wash your hands. 💕🐾💕🐾

Can Cats Live on a Vegan Diet? (full article)

Cats, as a species, are obligate carnivores. In very simple terms, this means that cats require meat in their diet. They have specific nutrient needs that can only be supplied through the ingestion of animal meat.
