Deadline: Apr 30, 2019


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.
