DOB September 8, 2012.

Hi there! My name is Shilo - but don't worry... though I may be a bit shy at first, I promise that's not where my name comes from! Give me a few days (and maybe a couple of treats) and I will be purring up a storm and ready to play.

People say I'm stunning, and don't I know it! I love to be brushed to keep my fur lovely and soft.

I have so much energy and love to play - I'll entertain you by chasing mice and jumping for feathers all afternoon. I would probably learn to play with another young cat, but I'm also happy to have all of your attention.

I love being close to you, and will sleep on your pillow if you let me but I'm not a big cuddler and I don't like being picked up very much. Although I love to have my chin and neck scratched and be petted, I'll let you know when I've had enough. And I don't really like the loud tiny humans that try to touch me.

I've spent a lot of time in cramped cages, patiently waiting for someone who loves me for me. I want to make it work this time! I'd love to meet you and find a place in your home and you heart forever.

About Toronto Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

***ALL cats over 8 months of age have a reduced adoption fee of $100 for the month of August 2016!!***

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.
