Our Thanks for Giving Auction

Our Thanks for Giving Auction

Since we can’t all be together this Thanksgiving, it seems the cats will be the only ones making biscuits this weekend. In the spirit of the season, we invite you to give back online this year and also treat yourself. Our auction will be held from October 11th – 25th and is filled with cozy blankets, teas, wine and lots of treats for your cats and dogs. Go check it out for yourself! Thank you for helping a cat in need this season.

PetSmart’s National Adoption Days

PetSmart’s National Adoption Days

Join us for PetSmart’s National Adoption Days, September 14-30th!

You can check out our available cats and kittens on our website (www.ninthlifecatrescue.org) or have a look at our “KITTENS UNDER SIX MONTHS” album right here on our Facebook page.

Submit an application (https://ninthlifecatrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application/) and if your application is suitable, you will be contacted to arrange a meet & greet at either one of our open adoption centres, or virtually with the foster!

While COVID is requiring us to do things a little bit differently now, there are still many cats & kittens looking for their forever homes!

FATHER’S DAY RAFFLE

FATHER’S DAY RAFFLE

Summer is fast approaching and so is Father’s Day! As adoption centres are slowly preparing to re-open, we are still processing very limited adoptions right now, receiving much less revenue as a result. We still have many cats and kittens in foster homes waiting to see vets before they can go for adoption.

We are having another exciting online, no contact, gift card raffle in order to generate funds for our vet bills, just in time for Father’s Day! The single prize is all nine gifts cards with a total value of $250! Cards include: Starbucks ($50), Canadian Tire ($50), M&M Meat Shop ($50), LCBO ($25), Metro ($25), Beer Store ($25) and Ultimate Dining ($25).

Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. You can purchase tickets through EMT (Info@ninthlifecatrescue.org) or Canada Helps (https://www.canadahelps.org/…/events/fathers-day-gift-card…/).

Please be sure to indicate how many tickets you wish to purchase, as well as your name, address and phone number or email address so that we can contact you if you win. Gift cards will either be delivered or sent by mail. Tickets are on sale now and will be available until June 19th. Draw will take place on June 20th!

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