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

Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue is looking for volunteers to help with weekend store adoption events, baking, driving, and overall fundraising initiatives! If you love cats and want to get involved, please https://www.oscatr.ca/volunteer to fill out a volunteer application.

Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue is currently in search of drivers (particularly in Orleans, downtown, Manotick, Centretown) who would be able to collect alcohol empties from various locations as a fundraiser for the rescue. The bottles would either need to be cashed in at a recycling centre (then you would send the money to the rescue) or dropped off in Riverside South, Kanata, or Barrhaven. The money fundraised is used for veterinary bills, feed, crates, litter boxes, and the many other things that go into keeping our cats healthy and happy!

What you need: a license and car or truck with space for bottles.

To sign up, please email rescue@oscatr.ca.
