Team Cat Rescue was founded in 2013 by two individuals with a single common bond - a love of cats and a disgust of the high kill shelters and gassing pounds in Ontario and Quebec. We had a desire to help those cats that found themselves lost, abandoned, neglected or mistreated and, through no fault of their own, were without a family and a loving home. Team Cat Rescue was founded with the premise and intent of assisting cats in need of re-homing assistance that are at risk in high kill shelters and gassing pounds in Canada. We found that the other cat rescues at the time were selective about the cats they would/could help and many in need did not receive needed assistance. Instead, they languished in kill shelters; possibly meeting an untimely and unjust demise there. We were especially concerned about those discarded by their owners and placed in shelters due to age, health, behavioral or other problems that made them less likely to be adopted through an all breed shelter environment.
