Used Book Sale with Sallie
Annual Bottle Drive
Still Going Strong
Don't forget about our used book fund raiser! For a $25 donation, you will receive a bag of 10-12 books for your reading pleasure. Explore new authors and titles or reread an old friend that you forgot about. Call our Expert Book Lady, Sallie (807-548-5256) to discuss your preferences and she will curate a bag just for you. Books come in an adorable kitten reusable shopping bag (while supplies last). Contactless delivery available in the Kenora area.
Doug The Wonder Cat is doing his best to help fund the bottle drive.
Our bottle drive continues through Covid and has become our number one fundraiser. It is the shelter's main continuous source of funding so a huge thank you to everyone who has contributed to this effort. Please keep us in mind through the holiday season as you raise your glass in a toast to your loved ones. All bottles, cans and wine bladders can be dropped in the blue donation bins found in the driveway of the cat shelter (off the alley on the West side of 106 Regina Avenue).
Covid update: We are currently doing adoptions. Please be patient as our volunteer pool is limited due to Covid and it may take a bit more time than usual to process applications. We are doing the very best we can given the circumstances. Masks are required and only a limited number of people are allowed in the shelter. We have adult and adolescent cats as well as kittens available for adoption. We will be placing cats and kittens at Petvalu as they become ready for adoption.
The Kenora Cat Shelter was established in February 2003 when the local humane society was closed. With the loss of the humane society, a huge hole in animal rescue was created. Celynn Alcock recognized the need for a cat shelter and generously opened up her heart and home to the cats in desperate need of rescuing. Thanks to her dedication, compassion
and endless efforts, The Cat Shelter has saved over 2600 cats. But there is still so much more to be accomplished! With new intakes arriving every week, the cat shelter is often overflowing with adorable, adoptable cats. Do your part! Submit an adoption application and adopt a cat. Volunteer at the shelter and brighten the lives of our current residents. Or make a donation – all money goes directly to improving the lives of the shelter cats.
