Story
Meet Lola. Lola is about 5-6 years young. She has lots of energy, is very friendly and LOVES her toys. Lola has lots to say and will tell her stories all day. While she is quite affectionate once she warms up, she is still a bit shy and will take time to adjust in a new home. A calmer home with patience would be best. Lola is tolerant of other female cats but does not like males. She had a female roomie for a few months, and they were best buddies. She is now living with 5 other female cats, and gets along great with them, but she would also be perfectly happy as an only child. Lola so deserves a loving patient forever home that will take good care of her. Lola has had a hard life. She was living outdoors on a rural property where she had litter after litter. As you can see from her pictures, she did lose an eye - this was due to chronic untreated infections. She has had dental work done including most of her teeth removed. While Lola is FIV positive, it does not slow her down – please refer below for more information on FIV. Lola has been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. If you have room in your heart & your home for this deserving girl, please message us here or email heartstohomesfelines@gmail.com. The adoption fee is $200. FIV ----- FIV is a feline only virus that cannot be transmitted to people or other animal species. FIV is not passed between cats through casual contact like sharing food bowls or litter boxes or through playing, wrestling or licking/cleaning each other. FIV is passed between cats through a deep bite wound – deep enough to inject saliva into the bloodstream of the other cat – commonly occurring in outdoor cats who fight for territory. Purdue University’s College of Veterinary Medicine conducted a long-term study in cat shelters and found that FIV-positive cats can live with FIV-negative cats and not infect the FIV-negative cats during normal day-to-day interaction. Studies over the last 10 years have also shown that cats with FIV often live as long as otherwise healthy cats that do not have this virus.

Story
Meet Arebus (male, black) & Trixie (female, calico)! Arebus & Trixie are about 3.5 years old. They were surrendered to our rescue due to allergies. Once they settle in, you will find Trixie to be more outgoing & social – she enjoys pets and snuggles but also has that Calico independent streak. Her partner in crime, Arebus, is shier and will take a little time to warm up but once he does, here is what his foster mother has to say ‘Arebus is ridiculously affectionate. He is my lap cat! Truly one of the most lovable cats I’ve met. He loves touch and stares into my soul when we’re cuddling. He just needs time!!!’ Both are gentle and playful and would be fine with another gentle cat. They are fine with the male cat in their foster home. They had a very difficult time with the hyper active puppy in their original home and consequently we do not recommend that they be in a home with dogs. Arebus’ original owners decided to declaw him in the front earlier this year because he was scratching the furniture. We do not support declawing for any reason and truly wish they had surrendered him to us before declawing him. It is shameful that any vet in Ontario would declaw a cat because he is scratching furniture. Arebus also had a urinary issue in 2022 that we believe was the result of poor diet & stress. We are firm believers that all cats should get wet food every day. A tablespoon of wet food twice a day and lots of fresh water goes a long way in helping to prevent urinary crystals caused by a dry kibble diet alone. They are both on a urinary diet now and Arebus is doing great. Arebus & Trixie have been neutered/spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. If you have room in your heart & your home for this gentle bonded pair, contact us here or email heartstohomesfelines@gmail.com. The adoption fee is $400 for the pair.

Meet Luna! Luna is about 8 months old now. She was found on the street at the beginning of winter begging for food. Luna needs a calmer home where she will be the only pet. She hides from the cats and the dog in her current foster home – she was likely bullied/chased as a kitten. Luna loves attention and likes her foster mother to sit with her. She will sleep on top of her. She will also let you know when she has had enough & is done with pets. Luna needs a loving home that will give her a little time to adjust. Luna has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped vet checked and tested negative for FIV/FELV. If you have room in your heart & your home for Luna contact us here or email heartstohomesfelines@gmail.com.

Story
These siblings were born approximately June 2/21. Chloe and Colby are very sweet kittens. They were rescued from an outdoor situation where they were probably born to an outdoor stray and the resident who found them called for some help to rescue them. They are still very shy of people in their foster home but will enjoy pets while eating. It may take some time for their new family to gain their trust but we feel in time they will settle down. They will come and eat close to the humans and they do enjoy the company of the resident cat. They are getting used to the dog slowly. They will definitely need a patient home most likely a quiet home would be best for these two. Please apply if interested in this pair. They would probably love a quiet home with another calm cat to show them the ropes. Chloe and Colby is available for adoption through Grand River All Breed Rescue. The adoption donation is $325 per cat. All of our cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. If you’d like to adopt, please fill out an application. You can also reach us by email at GrandRiverRescue@hotmail.com.

Story
This sweet, 3-year-old, former momma is very inquisitive and sweet. We’re confident that this sweet girl was previously a house cat, but we think may have had some unfortunate experiences with people in the past. She may take time to adjust to meeting her new family, but once she does, she loves attention. She is very inquisitive about life, and loves watching TV! She is great with other cats as she has offered no issues with her foster’s three cats. She will make an amazing companion to an ideally slower household, or potentially a family, who is understanding of her body language and accepts that she may need time to fully trust them. Her foster is happy to teach Shiloh’s new family her body language cues to set everyone up for success.. Shiloh is available for adoption through Grand River All Breed Rescue. The adoption donation is $325 per cat. All of our cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. If you’d like to adopt, please fill out an application. You can also reach us by email at GrandRiverRescue@hotmail.com.

Story
Dahlia is the mama of the four kittens. She is approximately 1 to 2 years old. She came terrified, unsure how to behave around people but that changed when she learned she was getting the help she needed and her sweet personality bloomed. She has a lovely voice ranging from soft meows, chirps, and trills to let you know she is very happy. Dahlia yearns for attention and loves to weave around your legs, asking for pets on her head and along her back. She is most content when all four feet are on a solid surface. Although Dahlia is not fond of being held or snuggled, she may come to accept in the future that these things are nice too! Dahlia is very good at using her litter box! In fact, she does such a good job at covering her mess that it is recommended that she have a large or covered litter box as she tends to kick litter further than she needs to. Dahlia usually minds her own business and is happy to sleep in a quiet corner away from other pets, so should there be other pets in her new home, they should be introduced slowly and with absolute patience. Dahlia’s kittens are also available for adoption: Teddy, Linus, Percy, and Molly. Each kitten is available for adoption through Grand River All Breed Rescue. The adoption donation is $325 per cat. All of our cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. If you’d like to adopt, please fill out an application.

Milo is a 5 month old tabby (as of August 8) who loves to cuddle and is generally pretty chill. He mostly wants to spend time with his human, and will go berserk for string toys.
