A NEW FOCUS ON COMMUNITY CATS!
As many of our friends and followers are aware, we here at Pride Rescue have always had a soft spot for feral cats! We have worked with feral and street cats for many years, and take part in and support the implementation of T.N.R (trap, neuter, return) programs for unowned “Community Cats” in order to control and reduce the population of homeless cats trying to survive on our city streets.
Over the years, Pride Rescue has assisted to provide spay/neuter/vaccinate/return services to many unowned cats and kittens, and we currently support and maintain 18 colonies of community cats within the Hamilton/Dundas/Burlington areas, helping on-site colony caretakers to provide adequate shelter, food and protection for the cats, as well as providing support and funding to ensure all newcomers to these colonies are also provided with spay/neuter/vaccinate/return.
Proper colony management and care ensures that no further breeding takes place within these colonies, ending the cycle of suffering, and working to reduce the number of homeless community cats in our city.
Pride Rescue will be taking an even closer look at the community cats in our city moving forward, continuing to maintain the colonies of cats under our direct care, and working with a number of new colony caretakers that have sought out assistance to gain control of and manage the number of cats at each location.
We are in the early planning stages of another amazing “Spay it Forward” campaign, and will be launching some fund-raising initiatives soon to assist in raising funds to provide spay/neuter/vaccinate and other essential veterinary services for the cats in need this spring.
Please be sure to stay tuned on our Facebook page for ongoing updates and information.

Pride Rescue is pleased to offer a Beat The Heat Program for pregnant or nursing mother cats and their families — we will provide your cat with a FREE spay, microchip, FVRCP & Rabies vaccination and flea treatment — all YOU have to do is surrender your litter of kittens to the rescue, so that they too will be spayed/neutered and will be found loving and responsible homes.
EMAIL US AT email@example.com using the subject line “Beat the Heat” if you need to surrender a litter and to have your female cat spayed.
PLEASE TELL US the name, age and colour of your mother cat(s) and the number of and date of birth of their kittens so we can determine how soon we can spay your cat for free!
Please include the full name, phone number(s) and mailing address of the cat owner/care giver, so your cat’s microchip is registered correctly at the time of spay surgery.

CAT SAVVY TEMPORARY FOSTER HOMES NEEDED!
Pride Rescue is currently seeking the assistance of cat lovers in our community to open their homes to community cats in need.
Pride Rescue is currently gearing up to provide T.N.R (trap, neuter, return) services at 3 new colony locations, and we require community assistance to provide safe and comfortable housing for community cats who are recovering from their spay/neuter surgeries before being re-released at their colony locations.
The foster duration for each recovery period will be 7-10 days in most cases, however in some cases cats will require treatment or recovery in excess of the norm. should treatment for illness or injury be required to ensure the best possible health of the cat before he or she is safely re-released.
Most of the cats who require assistance are poorly socialized and do not enjoy human interaction, interested fosters should understand these cats are not suitable adoption candidates, and will need to be treated with respect and caution at all times during the recovery process.
If you can help by providing a safe recovery foster home for community cats in need, please select the link below to submit a foster application.
THANK YOU for helping us to help community cats in need!
