Raising Awareness

We would like to raise reader's awareness that it's kitten season and many kittens are being born around sheds, backyards or barns. Port Stanley Cat Rescue can help provide relief by capturing & socializing the kittens after they have been with the mother for at least 4-6 weeks, then getting them adopted. We are a registered non-profit charity and now an official Adoption Partner with Petsmart in London. PLEASE do not let them go unattended, saying "they are so cute...". Kittens grow quickly and a female cat can go into heat as early as 4 1/2 months and once a female has her first heat, it will happen continuously until she mates or is spayed. If the situation is left unchecked, a cat colony will soon occur, some get hit on the road, others die from preventable causes or starvation. The lucky ones have kind residents who feed them on a regular basis and hopefully get veterinary care.

We also help feral, stray or abandoned cats and try to re-unite owners with their lost pets. There are several feral colonies in the village where we feed cats on a daily basis. But all this requires financial and moral support. We conduct two garage sales every year with donated articles, we also make and sell fruit jams made from local produce over the summer (watch for further notice as to dates and locations where we sell our jams, thanks to local merchants) and we receive many generous donations from caring patrons. Our first garage sale is May 19th at 275 Edith Cavell Blvd, in front of unit 19 from 8-12 PM. Please drop by or donate any unwanted items to help us raise funds.

We always need volunteers, especially if you can help drive an animal to the vet or help at trade shows and garage sales or provide foster care for a vetted cat that needs a temporary home until an adoptive one can be found. ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED! Our telephone # is 519-782-4914. Thanks again!
