Two ways to help the cats this holiday season!
Volunteers needed for our
Christmas Gift Wrap Fundraiser
It's December and that means our gift wrap fundraiser is about to get started. Please consider donating some of your time to help wrap gifts at either Canadian Tire or Mark's. We ask that all volunteers bring their own mask and wear it for the entire time they are volunteering. If you schedule to wrap with a partner (recommended for holiday cheer!), ensure that the partner is in your "bubble" and that you are comfortable sharing scissors and other tools with them. Hand sanitizer will be provided. Click on the logo above to go to the online volunteer schedule sign-up for each store. And a huge Thank You to everyone! The Kenora Cat Shelter is only made possible by all of our volunteers and donors!

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 cirMasks 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.
