Annex Cat Rescue: Cat Adoption with A Difference

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.
  • Feature Cat: Cosette

    Cosette is one very sweet and loving kitty. This shy, once-abandoned girl will easily warm your heart every day, sitting by your side and often purring as you go about your business. She is quite content, likes to head-butt, enjoys making small toys disappear, and sometimes re-discovers her tail. Cosette has hyperthyroidism, which is currently controlled with a restricted food diet that she loves and that is available at any local veterinarian. She also needs a regular blood test at the vet clinic to ensure her levels remain stable. Don’t let this deter you; Cosette is an amazing, easy-going beauty who can be shy at first but who opens up once she knows you are in for love. She has lots of love to give in return.
