Volunteering at the Annex Cat Rescue Booth at the CNE
Teena is a volunteer for the Annex Cat Rescue (ACR). Today I joined her and other volunteers at the ACR Booth at the CNE Cat Show.
Annex Cat Rescue is a 100% volunteer charity dedicated to addressing the plight of homeless cats in the Greater Toronto Area by:
1- Humanely trapping homeless kittens and abandoned or stray adult cats for placement in our foster and adoption program;
2- Feeding and providing medical care for feral cats in designated colonies;
3- Curbing population growth in those colonies through trapping, spaying/neutering, and vaccinating;
4- Educating the public on the compassionate treatment of homeless cats and responsible pet ownership; and
5- Improving urban environments through community cooperation.
Author Regan W. H. Macaulay donated copies of her children's book, Beverlee Beaz the Brown Burmese for the show, with 100% of the sales going to ACR. She was there to sign copies of her book.
I took some time to wander away to take see some of the cats in the show.
I loved the ears on this Oriental Shorthair and previous winner of the kitten category.
A couple of more cuties.
It was a good time for a good cause. Our two cats, Crumpet and Muffin were adopted through the ACR. Please check out their website.
