Who We Are

Pet Patrol is an entirely volunteer-run, non-profit organization in the Kitchener – Waterloo area. We began in 1996 in recognition of the overpopulation problem of felines in our community and have found homes for about 3000 cats since then. We give cats a second chance and an opportunity for a full life as we are NO KILL. We are a registered charity and rely solely on donations to cover our extensive veterinary costs, which are over $100,000 per year. We receive no assistance from our municipality or government.

Our cats come from all different situations; abandoned in the country, owner relinquished, born in a shed and shelters with a high euthanization rate. They are kept in foster homes and not kennels therefore we are able to learn about their personalities and can find them an appropriate home. All our cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and any health concerns are addressed before they are available for adoption. Pet Patrol asks for an adoption donation of $175, and $25 for a second cat, to help offset the initial Vet costs. Have a look at the cats we have available and email askus@petpatrol.ca to set up a time for a visit.

Pet Patrol does not believe an animal should be euthanized just because they are unwanted or ill but can regain their health. We do everything in our capacity to make sure that all opportunities for the cat are met. We not only rely on conventional veterinary care, but also chiropractic care, homeopathy, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, specialized dentistry and allergy testing.

We also work to educate the community on the proper care of cats and provide information aimed at reducing the homeless cat population in the KW and surrounding areas.
