Volunteers are what keep Desperate House Cat Rescue Society alive! YOU can help us!


Check out our supplies wishlist! We ALWAYS need supplies for our cats which can get very costly! If you would like to donate any unwanted cat toys, food, grooming tools etc, our volunteers can either pick them up, or you can drop them off at our main foster home.


Our cat rescue strives to provide the best and most loving home for our pets. Please take a look at our adoptable cats and read their descriptions to see if any of our furry friends would be a perfect match for your family!


Saving Pets One at a Time

Welcome to the official Desperate House Cat Rescue Society website. We are located on the outer edge of the Greater Toronto Area and have been running since 2006. Desperate House Cat Rescue Society is a volunteer run, nonprofit organization that is dedicated to the principal of finding loving homes for breed cats, feral cats, stray cats, and most of all any domestic cats.

All of our cats have been spayed, neutered, dewormed and are in excellent health and condition prior to being put up for adoption. We are a registered company and operate solely on donations. We are also licensed to provide tax receipts under a license number. Donations can be made through PayPal, Visa or Mastercard. Please click the "Read More" button, or the "About Us" section to find out more about what we do!


No-kill humane society

Desperate House Cat Rescue Society takes pride in our No-Kill policy meaning we do not put any of our animals down, no matter how difficult it is to find homes for them. We strive to ensure the well-being and complete happiness of each animal providing them with vet care, treatment, socialization, grooming and etc. in order to find them their perfect homes!

Feral Cats

Many of the cats that we take into our humane society, are homeless cats that were living on the streets from being abandoned by their families or were born outdoors. These cats are not very social and lovable at first because of the nature of their living conditions before we take them in. At our humane society, our volunteers make a huge effort, and take a lot of time to coax these kitties into trusting humans! Most of our feral cats eventually realize that we are not trying to hurt them, and become the sweetest and most loving cats.

Adopting a Cat

Cats are a wonderful addition to any family, however they are still living creatures meaning that when you make the commitment to adopt them, you need to keep that commitment! Please read the following article to make sure adopting a cat is the right choice for you!
