OSCatR is a registered Canadian Charity
OSCatR is a registered Canadian Charity and can issue official tax receipts for charitable giving. One hundred percent of all monetary donations go to helping the cats. Donations go to medical and veterinary fees and other costs associated with monitoring, trapping, treating and housing these cats.
OSCatR does not have a facility. Fosters and donors generally cover the cost of food for our cats, which means every penny donated helps to run the rescue, get cats off the street and into homes or to the TNR program.
