Midnight and Patches have been adopted together!

These beautiful boys are 12-years old and have been well cared for and loved all of their lives. Sadly, their elderly owner passed away several months ago and we really need to find them a permanent new home where they can be well cared for and spoiled for the rest of their lives. They must go together. If you are interested in opening your heart and home to these wonderful boys, we would love to hear from you! Please contact us either by email: tapa@accesswave.ca or by phone: 864-3368 (you can leave a message during the day and calls will be returned after 6pm). Midnight and Patches are currently in foster and we will have to move them very soon. We will require an adoption application which we can either email to you or fill out over the phone! We have reduced their adoption fee to $100 for both (or $50 each)!! They have been neutered, recently vet checked, and all of their medical records over the years will be provided. Patches and Midnight are crossing their paws that they will find their new home very soon. They are truly amazing boys, both with wonderful personalities. They just want to be loved.

One of our rescued litters …

Baby kittens rescued Aug 24/11

These kittens were the lucky ones … they and their mom were brought in from outside. The kittens will be adopted and the mom will be spayed. Sadly, many more living outside won’t be so lucky. Shelters and rescues are full beyond capacity and yet we still get calls and emails daily for kittens and cats in desperate need of help! There are however, things that people can do to help.
1) If you live in Halifax Regional Municipality, contact your councillor and MLA to let them know if you have stray cats in your area. As the SPC has recently stated, the numbers of strays and ferals are at a crisis level. We desperately need a solution to this problem and low cost spaying and neutering would make a huge impact in preventing more kittens from being born!
2) Donations or help with fundraising are greatly appreciated. Contact us to see how you can help. Our recent fundraising includes yard sales, flea markets, collecting recycling and selling items on Kijiji. There are lots of creative ways to raise a few dollars!
3) Promote Tapa Cat Rescue or your local shelter or rescue group on your facebook site.
4) Have a business or know someone who does? Contact us for flyers or perhaps we could set up an information table for an hour or two!


Sponsor a Rescue!

Lucky’s hair cut!

When Lucky came to us he was covered head to toe with lice!  Having lived outside for at least 4 years we are unsure how long he had been so miserable.  Lucky is now one of our permanent rescues and will never have to worry about living on the street again!  For $10 per month, sponsor Lucky or another of our rescues.  Receipts will be issued for donations of $10 or more.  See our donation section on ways that donations can be sent to us.
