Country Cat Sanctuary
Ottawa, Ontario

Here at "Country Cat Sanctuary" my aim is to find homes for the abandoned cats I rescue. Regardless of how long it takes, I will find each cat a new home with someone who will provide it with loving care and attention for the rest of its natural life. When I place a cat in your home, I want to ensure that you and your cat will enjoy many happy years to-gether. However, if the adoption dosen't work out (or if the adopter must give up the cat at any time) "Country Cat Sanctuary" will willingly take the cat back and find another suitable home.
