Support Us

Your Support Makes a Difference!
There is a variety of ways you can help abandoned cats and kittens.

Donations

Since being founded in 2000, Forgotten Ones Cat Rescue has come to the aid of more than 2800 cats and kittens—and all this has been possible thanks to donations from people who care about helping homeless animals. Every dollar you donate is used to provide for the needs of the cats and kittens in our care.

Money we receive funds the cost of food, litter, and veterinary fees. Essential veterinary procedures are our largest expense, and include spay/neuter surgery, dental surgery, emergency surgery, examinations, vaccinations, testing for Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, and flea and ear mite treatment.

We are a registered charity and tax receipts will be issued for donations of $20.00 or more.


Foster Homes

Temporary Foster Homes

Between the time cats and kittens are rescued and when they can be permanently placed for
adoption, foster homes provide an important stepping stone.

The number of animals we can rescue depends on the number of foster homes available to provide the cats and kittens with a safe temporary haven. If you can open up your home and your heart to an animal in need, you will be rewarded with a marvelous experience. Forgotten Ones Cat Rescue pays for veterinary care—you provide the love!

Forever Foster Homes Our goal is to find wonderful forever families for every cat we rescue but, in some cases, the decision is made for the cat to join our Forever Foster Program. This may be due to the cat’s age, chronic or terminal illness, or behavioral issues, such as shyness. These factors may limit its chances of being adopted but it doesn’t limit the joy they can bring to foster families.

Please fill out the Foster Application Form and email it to contact@forgottenones.ca. We look forward to having you join our team!

Foster homes enable Forgotten Ones to save cats like Howy (above) from a life of hardships.


Volunteer

Forgotten Ones is 100% volunteer-based; we have no paid staff. Volunteering for Forgotten Ones Cat Rescue is a way for people to give back to their community and make a positive impact on the lives of people and abandoned animals where they live.

Scheduled positions are available to care for cats that are temporarily homed in adoption centres in PetSmart Elgin Mills and Tru Pet. In addition, we need volunteers to help at adopt-a-thons and fundraising events. Join our passionate, dedicated team today by filling out our Volunteer Application Form and emailing it to contact@forgottenones.ca.

We regret that we are unable to offer volunteer opportunities to those under the age of 18.


ADDITIONAL WAYS TO CONTRIBUTE

  • Fundraising Events Hosting your own fundraising event is a creative way to raise money for Forgotten Ones Cat Rescue. Hold a garage sale, a 50/50 draw, or a bake sale at your workplace.
  • Milestone Celebrations Requesting donations to Forgotten Ones Cat Rescue in lieu of gifts is a meaningful way to celebrate milestone occasions, such as birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, baby showers, bar/bat mitzvahs.
  • In Memory Gifts When we lose a loved one or cherished animal companion, we can find comfort in celebrating their lives. The recipient of your gift will receive a card announcing that an In Memory donation has been made in their name.
  •  Planned Bequests You can continue to lend a helping hand to animals in need through a planned legacy. It is a significant way to leave a lasting expression of your personal priorities.
