We are a non-profit charitable organization who helps in taking stray cats off the streets of Ottawa and surrounding area, and providing them with medical care and spaying and neutering. We provide TNR (trap-neuter-return) services to community cats (these are feral non-social cats) and help to look after community cat colonies.

Our volunteers do everything from behind the scenes coordination of the organization, fundraising, fostering cats, driving and even outside work such as trapping and feeding.


Volunteer Opportunities

Cat Fosters Needed!

What you need: A loving home, lots of patience, and commitment to animals!

Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue (OSCatR) will cover approved medical costs at our veterinary partners and fosters will cover cost of food (except veterinary food), litter, toys, etc. (except when donations allow us to provide these).

For more info and to apply, please go to https://www.oscatr.ca/foster.

Because there is never a shortage of cats, OSCatR is always in need of foster homes. Foster home volunteers are an integral part of the Adoption and Trap & Release (TNR) programs. Without foster homes, OSCatR would be limited in the help they could provide to cats who are referred to the Adoption and TNR programs.

Two types of fosters: Adoption (socializing/providing an enriching environment to cats who will be adopted out, allowing potential adopters to visit cats in your home) and TNR (providing a safe space for community cats to recover from neuter/spay before returning to their colonies).

Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue is looking to find volunteers who are able to provide nail trims for pets at our store events. Volunteers MUST be pet groomers, veterinary technicians, or veterinary assistants. Store events happen most weekends, and where possible, we'd like to offer nail trims in order to encourage more people to come out the events and raise more money for the rescue. The hours are flexible, and we are happy to accept any time you are willing and able to donate. Please apply by filling out a volunteer application at www.helpcats.ca/volunteer.
