Forgotten Ones Cat Rescue & Adoption Inc.

This charitable organization is a growing group of volunteers who love cats and whose main focus is rescuing from high kill shelters.  Homeless cats & kittens end up in these shelters through no fault of their own where there is little chance of placing them into loving, forever homes.

Every other month, Forgotten Ones showcase some of their adoptable cats in the adoption centre at Petsmart in Richmond Hill.  I am one of the volunteers who goes in one evening a week to tend, feed, cuddle & play with them, as well as, talk to potential adoptive families.

All of our cats with the exception of the ones that are on display at Petsmart and other locations are in private foster homes.  The majority of our cats are in the Richmond Hill or Pickering area, however, we have foster homes in Thornhill, Toronto, Scarborough, Whitby, Newmarket, Keswick, and Vaughan.

We do not have paid staff or government funding.  We rely on fundraising events, donations and grants to help us cover the costs of the many cats that come into our program.  All cats are vet checked, spayed, neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, treated for internal/external parasites and given any further veterinary care they require when we admit them into the program.

If you are interested in adding a four-legged furry kitty to your family, you can see cats currently available for adoption here
