We Need Your Help !

Please send your adoption or donation fee via E-transfers to rescue@oscatr.ca

Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue could not continue to do its work without the contributions, big and small, of time, funds and items from our donors. We thank you all for helping us in our quest to make Ottawa a kinder place for stray cats.

From time to time, we run special fundraising campaigns to help raise money. Several times a year we hold online auctions on our Facebook page, and in the spring we hold a Chili Cook-Off Competition 

When cats with special needs, such as larger medical costs or special dietary requirements, come into care, OSCatR runs targeted sponsorship campaigns to help raise the money needed to cover the additional expense. These programs are usually run through the Facebook page and include a summary story and pictures of the particular cat in need. Sponsors are offered a special incentive of a letter, picture and OSCatR magnet as a thank you for donations over $10.

We also run a special fundraising campaign to help provide Winter Shelters to our Community Cat colonies. Please click on the link for more information.

If you would like to donate, or support us through our various fundraising initiatives, please read on.

 

DONATION INFORMATION

100% of all monetary donations go to helping the cats. Donations cover medical and veterinary fees and other costs associated with monitoring, trapping, treating and housing these cats. OSCatR does not have a facility and fosters generally cover the cost of food for their cats, so every penny donated goes to getting adoptable cats off the street and into homes, and to our TNR program.

We also accept non-monetary donations of:

  • Cat food (dry/wet, all brands, and open bags are accepted as well)

  • Cat litter (clay clumping, clay non-clumping, wheat based, paper pellets)

  • New/clean litter boxes

  • Gently used scratching posts

  • Large and extra large dog crates

  • Cleaning/disinfecting products

  • Humane cat traps

  • and more
