Adopt. Volunteer. Donate.
Annex Cat Rescue relies exclusively on donations. The year 2022 marked our 25th anniversary; an amazing accomplishment for a charity that began with neighbours gathering to help homeless cats. This success is due to many committed volunteers and the generosity of our supporters. We continue to face extraordinary challenges including (but not limited to) cats requiring urgent medical and dental care as well as spay/neuter and vaccinations. Our work supporting homeless cats in our community cannot happen without ongoing support. Please consider donating. Any amount helps!
If your employer is a participant of “gifts by payroll deduction” with the United Way, you may be able to direct a portion of your donation to the Annex Cat Rescue.
Check the back of the first page of the United Way donation forms (likely available from your employer). On the bottom half of this page, there should be a section called Other Giving Options where there is a checkbox for “To Another Registered Charity.”
Fill in the amount you wish to donate.
You will also need to fill in the following information:
Full Name of Charity: The Annex Cat Rescue
Address: P.O. Box 19028, 360A Bloor Street West
Postal Code: M5S 3C9
Charitable Business Number: 871653945 RR0001
Your donation will be automatically deducted off of your pay through the year. Donations through this program are usually recorded on your T4 slip, or the United Way will issue a tax receipt to you at year-end.
United Way will collect your contribution on behalf of Annex Cat Rescue and remit the funds (minus an administration charge) to us on a quarterly basis.
Please note that the Annex Cat Rescue is not affiliated with the United Way and cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. For more information about this program, please talk to your employer or contact the United Way.
Employee Matching Program
Did you know that many companies will donate money for their employees’ volunteer hours? Some even will match your charitable donations. If you’re a current ACR volunteer or donor, please check with your HR department to see if they have an Employee Matching Program!
For any questions about submitting to this program please contact our Donations team.
