A Special Home for Special Animals

We are a small (unregistered) non-profit organization located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. We rescue animals with special needs and help free roaming cats who live outdoors.

Our sanctuary space includes an indoor pond for Stacie, our rescued Yellow-Bellied Slider turtle who was once abandoned. We have accommodations for four feral cats we rescued from outdoor life on the streets of Toronto who are all making amazing progress. There is a private space for Pippa and Kiki who are feline littermates who were born with moderate-severe levels of a condition called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. Milo is another cat who calls New Cat City home who was born with severe CH and is vision impaired, who also has his own private quarters. Mrs. Floppers is our original rescued cat with CH who has mild CH adopted in 2011. Rupi is our rabbit who was found as a baby abandoned outside in the winter of 2022, who also has her own separate space.

Since December 2020 we have helped close to 40 lost, abandoned, homeless, stray, or wayward cats by scouting, containing (trapping), sterilizing/vaccinating, and networking with other individuals and other rescue groups. We have not yet been forced to release any back outside on the harsh streets of Toronto post sterilization..

About Us

We believe in a world where every animal is given a fair chance. We have given four cats who were born with Cerebellar Hypoplasia a permanent home. We have made accommodations for homeless or abandoned animals such as cats, a turtle, and a rabbit to have a home here.

We investigate unsterilized or lost/abandoned cat sightings and organize/execute rescue missions. We work with other no-kill rescues to place (sterilized/vaccinated) cats indoors for socialization. Humans created the feline dystopia that exists out there, and we feel it’s our responsibility to eliminate as much preventable suffering as possible.

Our mission is to raise awareness about Cerebellar Hypoplasia and help everyone see that cats with CH can live happy and comfortable lives under the right conditions. We do our best to give the cats here who have CH the most comfortable life. We help to address the feral cat population concerns of Toronto and dispel the myth that all feral cats must be released back outside after sterilization. We help any animal in need whenever possible, regardless of species. We are operated by two vegan humans.

We do this with a lot of care and compassion. By utilizing social media to show the day-to-day progression of the animals in our care and rescue missions, we hope you may see the value in what we do. Cats with Cerebellar Hypoplasia, feral/fearful cat socializing, and containing/trapping cats require a lot of patience and love – which is plentiful at New Cat City.

How You Can Help

Send Financial Donation

January 2023: Donate to our latest fundraiser! We were set to fundraise for little Phoenix’s hernia repair surgery in October when we discovered Blucas’ dental emergency and gave him priority. After that we had an emergency with Baby London who is now undergoing treatment for bladder stones. London will be due for a recheck for bladder stones including radiographs at the end of January after being on a strict urinary diet that hopefully dissolved the stones. Phoenix was rescued off the streets in Toronto in 2016, likely lost/abandoned. She was intact, flea/worm ridden, and had severely burned paw pads. We need your help in raising funds for Phoenix’s bloodwork and hernia repair surgical procedure, Baby London’s next medical steps, as well as a solar trail camera with dual lens for the outside cats. The outside cats are monitored very closely but we cannot be there 24/7 and I have suspicions that they are at risk of nocturnal predators. If I am able to monitor the area overnight it will aid in making the area safer for the cats.

Cerebellar Hypoplasia

Cerebellar hypoplasia is a neurological condition in which the cerebellum is smaller than usual or not completely developed. 

NIH (National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke)

Cerebellar hypoplasia most commonly occurs when a pregnant cat becomes infected with feline panleukopenia virus and passes the infection to her unborn kittens.
