This Christmas Adopt, Don't Shop

Wondering what to give to your beloved granddaughter, Emma, this Christmas? 

This Christmas, why not give the gift of love to someone you love? Consider giving the gift of a furry feline friend.

Cats Anonymous is a longstanding no-kill adoption facility in southern Ontario. They are a volunteer-run, non-profit organization (no government or township assistance) that is home to approximately 60 cats who are permitted to roam free within the shelter. "Our cats need never fear euthanasia, and can stay with us as long as it takes to find the right adoptive home."

If you would like to adopt a new family friend or make a financial contribution to this deserving charity, get in touch:
