THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  - June 25, 2019 (LSN)  –  On Thursday, June 27th, Caring Hearts Cat Rescue & Sanctuary will be facilitating a transfer of 21 cats and 21 kittens to Southern Ontario animal shelters through the North Bay Humane Society.  "This is the second transfer we’ve participated in this year", says Caring Hearts' founder, Michelle Gagnon.  


Gagnon attributes the need to transfer cats out of the city to the higher than normal number of kitten births this past spring, in addition to the increased number of owner surrenders, resulting in the rescue’s overcapacity.  "We are having an increasingly difficult time placing our cats in Thunder Bay homes. We want all our rescues to find loving adoptive homes, so it’s in the cats’ best interests to send them out to Southern Ontario. The first transfer back in April resulted in 98% of the cats and kittens being adopted in less than 2 months", says Gagnon. 


Thunder Bay continues to struggle with an over population of cats, mainly due to the large number of un-altered strays in the city. Shortly after the first transfer took place in April, Caring Hearts rescued an additional  55 cats, many of which came from 2 separate hoarding situations.  All 55 cats were vet checked and a large number of them will be transferred to Southern Ontario on June 27th.  Associated vet costs for these cats amounted to close to $1500. 


Even with the upcoming transfer, Caring Hearts remains at near maximum capacity. The rescue is always in search of foster homes and donations.  Gagnon’s plea to the public, “Help us help them!”
