It's Kitten Season!
Which isn't actually a good thing.... We recieve numerous requests to help every day and we can't keep up. The hardest thing in rescue is having to say no.
We currently have two pregnant feral mamas in care and are assisting a hoarding situation where we've pulled out 30 cats and kittens
The best way to combat the cat overpopulation in Edmonton is spaying and neutering. Our partner vets provide us with a very generous rescue discount and top-notch care, but they cannot do this for free.
Please help us help YEG's community cats by purchasing 50/50 tickets - you could walk away with up to $10,000!!
Thank you for your support!

Founded in 2019, our group began when the City of Edmonton’s Animal Care & Control Centre decided to change its intake policy to a scheduled system that only accepts a narrow subset of cats. Our group posed a BIG question: what will happen to all of the other stray, feral & community cats?
The answer has been harrowing. Most of these animals will not survive our cold & distressing climate – these animals are not self sufficient. And unfortunately with a limited intake model and no TNR (trap-neuter-return) program in place to humanely manage the population, our city continues to see the stray & feral cat population explode.
These cats need help. The kind & caring citizens that have stepped in to help these cats need our support. And ultimately, our city needs a TNR program.
