Many Cats And Kittens Rescued From “Hoarding Situation” In Toronto Last Week Are Still Up For Adoption
Last week, the Toronto Cat Rescue responded to a hoarding incident in which over 100 cats, including 20 kittens, were rescued from a single home. Since then, the TCR has been working hard to ensure that these cats are placed safely in foster homes and shelters around the area. Many of the cats rescued from the hoarding situation in Toronto last week are now up for adoptions at the Etobicoke Humane Society.

The cats were well-cared for in their previous home, but the cats had continued to breed within the home. This had lead to a hoarding situation that became unmanageable within the home. The Toronto Cat Rescue, foster homes, Toronto Humane Society and the Etobicoke Humane society have all helped to house these cats until they find a better home.
On Saturday, the Etobicoke HumaneSociety arrived at the Toronto home to pick up the last 41 cats that remained inside the building. The other cats had already been transferred to other foster homes and animal shelters throughout the week.

This was a big job for the humane society, as it usually only houses around 35 cats each month. Taking on the rest of the cats within the Toronto home has led to extra volunteers helping out.
The new cats spent the weekend being weighed, medically examined, vaccinated, and given names to prepare them in finding a new and loving home. Seventeen of these lucky cats have already found homes over the weekend, but there are plenty more still waiting for their forever homes.
Since many of the cats have never been incontact with a human, many of them are "very shy" according to the Toronto Cat Rescue. Yet, many of the cats have already started to warm up to the idea of being around people.

Cristina Scassa, president of the Etobicoke Humane Society told CBC News that, "Our volunteers spend time with them so that they get used to being with people. That's normally the biggest fear that they have,".
The Etobicoke Humane Society is hoping that a majority of these cats will be able to find forever homes within the next few months.
