Feline Fiesta cat adoption blitz extended to July 20
The City of Toronto is extending Feline Fiesta, a cat adoption blitz, until July 20. Residents can adopt a kitten or cat for only $25 (plus HST and a licence if applicable) from one of the City's four animal shelters.

"The cat adoption blitz has been extremely successful and was a great way to support Shelter Cat Adoption Month in June," says Councillor Cesar Palacio (Ward 17 Davenport), Chair of the City's Licensing and Standards Committee. "We are extending the discounted adoption fees period to encourage more Toronto residents to visit one of our shelters and find a feline friend."

More than 120 cats and kittens were adopted during the first two weeks of the blitz but there are many more felines waiting for permanent homes.

While most adoptions occur at one of the City's four animal shelters, Toronto Animal Services also works with off-site pet adoption partners (such as local pet supply stores) to showcase animals that need homes in local communities. A list of the City's adoption partners can be found at

Good preparation can ensure that the first few days with your new pet are stress-free, making this time a great starting point for your new pet to build strong bonds with your family that will last a lifetime. Get tips and information about preparing for your new pet at
