Hans Solo's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.

Hans Solo's Story...
Tipper and his brother Tucker were adopted as kittens from ACR, but unfortunately his human dad got very sick and they had to be returned when he was no longer able to care for them.
Tipper is a gorgeous, black and white cat with a long, soft coat of fur.  Both brothers are lovable cats and fun to have around.  Both are social and come to the door when his humans come home from work or an evening out. He may be a bit shy of strangers, but warms up quickly.  He loves to sit on our laps (or on the newspaper when its being read!) and be patted and cuddled.  He is not a vocal but, but instead will let you know he wants food by sitting patiently beside his empty bowl.  Tipper and Tucker have been together their entire lives, but it is not necessary they be adopted together.  
Because Tipper tends to give soft love bites, he would not be suitable for a home with children.

Hans Solo and Chewbacca's long fur is quite symbolic of their long journey with Annex Cat Rescue (ACR). These brothers first came to us as rescue kittens and were fortunate enough to find a loving home until their caretaker fell ill and could not longer care for them. Of course, once you're part of the ACR family, you're always part of the family so they re-entered the foster program and have been patiently waiting 4 years hoping to find another amazing home that will take them both home. Over the years Hans Solo has accumulated many stories when you meet him you can ask him whether he prefers being the big spoon or little spoon while cuddling, about his unofficial job as a the bathroom patrol guard, and also about his distain for literature. Despite his formidable name, this big boy is known to enjoy a nice warm lap and is ready for him and his big bro to make your house a home. Hans Solo is part of a bonded pair looking to adopted together. Both cats are well suited for life with adults and are okay to spend the day home alone. It is unclear if they are comfortable with dogs or children. Hans Solo has been diagnosed with a heart murmur which currently requires no special treatment other than regular vet checks.

About Annex Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Cat Adoption with a Difference

The Annex Cat Rescue began as a group of volunteers living primarily in the Annex neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. We now have members from all over the city. We share a common bond -- a love of cats and concern for their welfare. We are a non-profit organization and have no government funding.

It is our goal to eliminate cruelty to animals by providing for the fostering and adoption of cats that are homeless, abandoned, or where their owners (through illness, age, or death) can no longer care for them. We try to educate members of our community regarding the proper care of cats and to provide information aimed at reducing the feral, homeless, and abandoned populations. Throughout the year, we assist in the feeding of many feral cat colonies and operate a trap-neuter/spay-return (TNR) program.

Please lend your support to our cause by adopting one of our wonderful cats or by contributing a small donation!


The success of Annex Cat Rescue depends on the dedication of our volunteers -- not just the foster homes and trappers who work hands-on, but also those who support ACR's rescue work behind-the-scenes. If you, or anyone you know, is interested in becoming a volunteer, or expanding your work within the organization, please apply online.

Please see our website for some ways you can help. Our experienced volunteers are always there to support you, and even a few hours of your time every month can make a big difference.

Come Meet Our Pets...

The Annex Cat Rescue is a grassroots community organization. We are 100% non-paid volunteer-run. Our organization attempts to make a real difference for the homeless, stray and abandoned cats in this city through direct intervention and education. Every day, many people turn to us for help when Toronto Animal Services cannot.

ACR does *not* run an animal shelter. All of our cats/kittens live in volunteer foster homes across Toronto where they are allowed to blossom and grow in a "home" environment (rather than in cages), and where they receive individual attention and love.

While this prevents possible behavioural problems associated with caging animals, this also allows us to get to know each animal intimately and thus we can make excellent matches with adopters. Potential adopters are required to make appointments to view the animals in their respective homes.

Our organization is "no kill". This means that cats in our care remain in foster homes are not euthanized (except for dire humane reasons). City shelters do not have such a policy.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are thinking of adopting a cat or kitten, please contact us. Annex Cat Rescue has matched over 1000 cats and kittens with good adoptive homes since our group started!

Annex Cat Rescue cats live in real homes with our foster volunteers -- not in cages! This way, the cats live in normal homes and receive good food and medical care -- and lots of personal attention. We get to know each cat, so we can help you find the best cat for you. It's kind of like a kitty match-making service!

All of our cats are vaccinated, have been de-wormed, and are spayed or neutered once they reach six months of age.

We are always available if you have questions or concerns as your new cat is adjusting to your home.

Here is our adoption process:

  • Please leave a voice mail or email.

  • One of our Adoption Team volunteers will contact you to find out more about the kind of kitty you are looking for. We will suggest which of our cats might be the best match for you, and put you in touch with a few foster homes for you to contact.

  • You can go and visit the cat in the foster home and see if you think it's a match.

  • If you fall in love on the spot (so easy with kitties!) we ask you to go home and think about it overnight, since it's an important decision for you and for the kitty.

  • Then, if it's a match, you can bring your cat carrier (and the adoption fee -- which is modest and does not cover all of our expenses) then take your kitty home! We ask all adopters to sign our adoption agreement, which just sets out some basics so we all understand our roles, with the kitty's best interests first and foremost!

  • A day or two later, we'll call you to make sure all is well and provide any suggestions that might be helpful, if needed.

The Annex Cat Rescue's motto is "Cat Adoption with a Difference." If the adoption does not work out (a rare occurrence, in part due to our excellent "match-making"!), whatever the reason, the cat will always be welcomed back to our organization. We want the best for our kitties!
