Guildwood Cat Relief

Guildwood Cat Relief is a small, private network of foster homes that work together to find loving, permanent homes for cats and kittens in need.

Our kitties come from east Scarborough and further afield and include many that have been abandoned or surrendered due to their owner's illness, allergies, loss of housing or financial crisis. Some are young and some are old; some are healthy and some need restorative veterinary care.


Update: July 17, 2021

Congrats Ontario! We have made headway in our battle against COVID-19! Therefore Guildwood Cat Relief is resuming our adoption and foster-to-adopt programs.

IMPORTANT: Our foster program has been terminated, please do not send any more foster applications, they will not be processed.

1. Adoptions and Foster-to-Adopt Applications
Please stay tuned for our adoptees on our "Available Kitties" page. All cats listed qualify for both the adoption and foster-to-adopt programs. Also, please take note of their status.

Adoption Pending - a match has been found, but the adoption is not finalized.
Paired With - this is a cat that needs to be adopted with another cat because they  are bonded.
Not Currently Available - the cat is temporarily not available for adoption

2. Intake or Emergency Intake
We are always open for intake, and never turn a kitty away if they are in need of assistance. Please note that many of the rescues and shelters are very full at this time of year, and reconsider surrendering your cat unless you absolutely have no other option. We do ask if you are surrendering your kitty, please make sure you provide us with their most recent vaccination papers. If you kitty has no vaccinations, please inform Guildwood Cat Relief immediately.

3. Volunteer Applications
We are now accepting volunteer applications and are looking a few volunteers for the following positions:

  • Litter Attendants - positions filled.
  • General Cleaners
  • Lawn Maintenance
  • Drivers for vet visits and deliveries
  • Social Media/Webpage maintenance
  • Foster Home for kitties

* If you are interested in any of these volunteer positions please email us or contact us on Facebook.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please contact us at the following:


We hope everyone stays safe during this difficult time.
