Hi, I’m GANDALF! I’m a 10 year-old grey tabby who is seeking an indoor only forever home. I’ve had a rough start to life. I was abandoned by my owners (who adopted me from a local shelter) and left to fend for myself on the streets of Toronto. Sadly, I didn’t do well... I was starving, dehydrated and very skinny.

Luckily, I was rescued! After some TLC, rest and good food, I’m now ready to forget about my past and find a loving, forever home.

I’m a very sweet, affectionate boy with soft, fuzzy grey fur. I’m extremely friendly, adaptable and curious, with a fearless approach to life. I also have a lot to talk about and like to comment on things with sweet little meows.

My foster parents gave me my name because I resemble the wise grey wizard from the Lord of the Rings. Now, don’t let my age fool you - I’m playful and definitely like to be part of the “action” and will follow you around to see what you’re up to and if I can help! But most of all, I love to cuddle on my foster parents lap and keep them company, while they stroke me as I hang out and fall asleep. Ah, what a life!

I’m now looking forward to the next chapter of my life. I’d love to be in a home that can give me lots of love, attention and plenty of company. I also get along well with my own feline kind (playmates are fun I say!), but I am somewhat reluctant of dogs (unless they’re gentle, sweet and non-aggressive, then I can learn to “tolerate” them I suppose!). But given my history, I have to be an indoor cat.

Gandalf has had a hard life and deserves a second chance. He’s earned the right to be part of a caring and loving home (and a little extra TLC and pampering wouldn’t hurt either!). Can you find it in your heart to adopt this very special boy?

About Toronto Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Toronto Cat Rescue is a registered, no-kill charity run by volunteers.

Our mission is to rescue and find homes for abandoned, sick or injured cats from situations of abuse, neglect or imminent euthanasia.

Our vision is for Toronto to be a city in which no adoptable cat is killed and rescue organizations such as Toronto Cat Rescue are no longer needed.

Our registered charity number: 889-198-727-RR-0001

Our Adoption Process...

Decided on the cat or kitten you would like to adopt? Please call 416-538-8592, or email

An adoption counsellor will return your call and give you more details about the cat you are interested in and ask some questions about your home to make sure the cat will be a "purr-fect" fit. We are happy to answer any questions you may have as well.

You will be supplied with the foster home address to have a meet and greet with your kitty. If both parties are happy, you can sign the TCR Contract of Adoption, pay the adoption fee and take your cat home with you in a safe carrying case.

Adoption fee is $175 per cat. This ensures that the cats that come into our care receive the attention they need, are spayed or neutered, and receive a rabies vaccination at the appropriate age. It includes 6 weeks of free pet insurance. For City of Toronto residents, the adoption fee includes a mandatory City of Toronto cat license that is valid for one year. As you can imagine, these fees only begin to cover our costs; donations and ongoing fundraising efforts carry us the rest of the way!


1. ALL senior cats (8 years or older) have an adoption fee of the adopters choice, vs. our standard adoption fee of $175.

2. Our adoption fee for a bonded pair is $100 per cat, vs. $175 per cat.
