My story

Poor Rosa has had a hard-knock life so far, but is hoping for something wonderful to come her way - she really deserves it!

Rosa came to us as a single, pregnant mom along with the one surviving (4 month old) kitten from her last litter.

She raised her kids and they have all been adopted - now she needs and deserves a home of her own.
But here is the challenge - Rosa has been let down by humans so far and still doesnt trust.
She prefers to hide from new things, but has NEVER shown the slightest hint of agression.

She will occasionally allow you to pet her gently, but does not seek out attention.
Rosa is fine with other cats but does not seek out their attention

The perfect home for this fluffy and elegant cat is one with another gentle and social kitty around for companionship. Or a single person who wants a companion but doesnt mind if she keeps to herself.
Rosa may never be a lap cat - but she will be a beautiful companion and you will have given a sweet kitty a new lease on a happy life.

Additional adoption info

Adoption involves an interview, a meeting and home visit (in person after Covid, currently virtual), vet references, and an adoption fee. Our greatest concern is the animals that we care for, and matchmaking is what we do best..

Go meet their pets

Most of our cats and all of our dogs are cared for in foster homes. They are not available to meet until your application has been started, you have been interviewed and approved. Some of our cats may be featured in the Global Pet Foods store located in Alliston, ON and in Shelburne, ON. And we occasionally hold "meet and greet" events at PetValu, 184 Front St., Toronto, ON. In those cases, the adoption process is the same and conducted by CompassionForPaws - NOT by the staff at the store. We never do adoptions directly from an event but applications may be tendered.

More about this rescue

We are a network of compassionate individuals that care for homeless paws, in foster homes throughout Southern Ontario, until they can find a new, permanent place to call their own. Shelly Hawley-Yan has more than 20 years experience in rescue, and the team of Debbie Hunt, Vickie Janetos, Andrea Maenza and Dale Reilly add another several decades of combined rescue experience. Our adoptable paws come from shelters where the animals may not have been coping with that environment, or may have been surrendered by people whose lives have changed, ​ All paws have been vet checked and are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
