Furry Tales Rescue is a 100 percent volunteer run cat rescue located in Smiths Falls, Ontario with adoption centres in Smiths Falls, Kemptville, Richmond Village and several locations in Ottawa including the Feline Café Ottawa.
Since opening its doors in August 2015, we have rescued over 1000 cats and in 2017 had over 500 adoptions. In 2018 alone we had an incredible 200+ adoptions. We receive no funding other than adoption fees which do not cover our vet costs as we ensure each cat is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and treated with Revolution and Milbemax. We hold online auctions to help cover the difference and receive donations from individuals who we could not carry on without their support.
We are primarily foster based, we have about 30 fosters registered and also have a Cattery where we house 10 to 25 cats at any given time.
Aside from our regular cats and kittens, we try to help as many seniors as we can. We took in 2 bonded 11 year olds. They will require dental cleaning/extractions. We also welcomed a 10 year old diabetic yesterday know as Dr. McCoy. Lucky, a lovely male adult found in a sewer in Kemptville and weighing only 4.85 pounds for a full grown male. He will require months to gain back 5 pounds so will be in care longer term. We also took in 11 un-neutered males from a home who could no longer care for them – shy boys who will need patience and love.
In order for us to continue to help these wonderful cats in need we are asking for the communities help in both financial contributions, food, litter as well as quality foster homes. We assist cats without boundaries – Smiths Falls, Perth, Morrisburg, Ottawa, Kemptville and beyond.
If you can help with a donation we have several drop off locations for food and litter – Smiths Falls Pet Valu, Kemptville Pet Valu, Richmond Village Pet Valu, Healthy Pets Hq on 420 Bank St, Hintonburg Pet Valu on 1224 Wellington ST Ottawa and the Feline Café Ottawa on 1076 Wellington.
