Cat adoption in Toronto is very important. Why? Because according to the SPCA in 2017 there were almost 17000 feral cats in the Toronto area. As a cat lover, this breaks my heart because cats are wonderful! They have personality, they are intriguing, and funny. (Let’s admit it, cats can also be weird but in a good way!) But to think that there are that many cats without a home due to neglect, abuse or other sad circumstances is truly concerning. Fortunately, there are organizations in the Toronto area that are working hard to find many cats a home. This is great and these organizations are to be commended. Here are a few below.
