Facts about Sammy

  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
3 years old.

This is Sammy. Sammy was a stray that was hanging around my place all summer and was sick with an URI. I trapped him in October, had him neutered, shots, de-wormed and treated for his infection. My intent was to re-release him as I thought he was totally feral. When I had him at the vets they told me he was not aggressive so I moved him to a small room off my garage to recuperate. It took 1 month of antibiotics to clear the URI and by that time the cold weather had set in and I didn’t have the heart to put him back outside. I had him tested in November (snap test) for feline leukemia and he tested positive. I intend to have him re-tested in the next several weeks in case the first result was a false positive. I already have 3 rescues and cannot responsibly take care of him. My husband is also disabled and I do not have the time to spend with him. I have been working with him for 4 months (I only have 1 hour a day to spend with him). He was extremely scared and untrusting when I first brought him inside but has made great progress with the little time I have to spend with him. He deserves a loving home where he can roam free and not be locked in a room all day. If you have the time, love, patience and experience with semi-ferals please consider offering this little fellow a forever home.

Sammy is participating in our Courtesy Adoption Posting Program and is not the property of Toronto Cat Rescue. Toronto Cat Rescue does not accept responsibility for any pet placements that result from this service. If you need more info or would like to adopt please contact Wendy Fritz directly at

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...

***AUGUST ONLY*** All our cats two years and older have a reduced adoption fee of $100 (vs. our standard fee of $175).

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!
