A Busy Season

Toni's Kitty Rescue is ending a very busy season. We successfully fostered over 800 kittens, attended many fund raising events and established many new friendships/supporters!

We work hand in hand with SF Animal Care and Control and in 2012 they lowered their adoption fees. The low fee made it possible for us to do double adoptions...many of our kittens found their forever homes with a special foster buddy!

The Second Wave

During late summer and early autumn in San Francisco, Toni's Kitty Rescue experiences a 'second wave' of orphaned kittens. Just this morning one of our volunteers rescued a stray mom cat and her six 4 day old kittens! Like this tiny guy in the picture, the new mom and her kittens will find a warm and safe foster home with one of our dedicated volunteers. As of September 5, 2012 Toni's Kitty Rescue has fostered and save over 580 kittens!

Here we see volunteer Rocky, our founder Toni Sestak and S. F. resident,Teresa Tam attempting to rescue a stray feral kitten who was born on a back porch behind building tiles. The effort was a success.... we found and rescued the kitten you see in the photo below!  Our little girl is now safe and snug indoors.....we know there are two more kittens and will go back this week to rescue them.  UPDATE: 9/26/12- Rocky was called back twice and on the second visit he did rescue the two remaining kittens!
Rocky is a very experienced handler so the kitten was picked up easily. He placed her safely inside the small cage, covered it with a towel to keep her calm, and transported her to a new, safe temporary home.

Toni's Kitty Rescue Summer Events

Summer is our busiest time of year! To help facilitate adoptions, we travel with our kittens to 'meet and greet' our supporters. We make wonderful new friends along way... Thank you to Kelly Hensley, owners of Leftovers furniture store and thank you to Bloomingdales, S.F.   

 Volunteer Linda posed with Snow at the Bloomingdale's Event. Our kittens were set up right between Dior and Louis Vuitton....no competition for our cuties!
 Snowy is a calm kitty and likes to sit on Tonis' shoulder
We made many new friends at Blommingdales last Saturday....including this little girl who stopped by with her mom via Brazil!

Party Time at Leftovers!

Toni's Kitty Rescue was invited to a grand opening yesterday!  Kelly Hensley, animal welfare activist and entrepreneur invited us to her party....she is celebrating the new location of Leftovers!
Snowy, one our TKR foster kittens, was present for an informal 'meet and greet'...
Snowy was responsible for many smiles throughout the evening, just ask Katy and Jeremiah!
Diane stopped by for a look with her cute pooch Liz.
Whew!  When the kitties were partied out they got to nap in their Folding Play Pen, donated to us from our Amazon Wish List!
Thank you Kelly for the great party and congratulations! Best of luck to you with the new store!

Leftovers new location is fabulous....located at 1350 Van Ness @ Sutter. This huge store is filled with gorgeous furniture, paintings, lamps and of course, very polite resident cats!  Go check out this exceptional store...

The Adoptathon was a Success!

Jen Clark and Toni were happy to review the adoption stats from the Adoptathon! It was a great success. Many of our foster kittens found their permanent homes over that very busy weekend!  Thank you volunteers and congratulations to all who adopted a new feline family member!
