Abandoned Cats Rescue (ACR) is the longest established cat rescue group in the Hamilton area. We're a Canadian Registered Charity that is entirely volunteer operated and donor funded. We respond to requests to help abandoned and neglected cats, strays, and pets needing to be re-homed. All cats and kittens taken into our care are placed in loving foster homes and, prior to being put up for adoption, are vet examined, flea/worm treated, vaccinated, spayed/neutered, microchipped and provided with treatments or surgeries for any identified medical issues. We never euthanize an animal in our care unless that animal is suffering and beyond any type of medical help. We believe that there is the perfect home for ALL of our cats and that each of them deserves a chance to be loved forever!


Maki is a senior lady with an attitude. She is also timid - quite the combination. She wakes you up in the morning chirping for food and goes to bed with you. She doesn't play in the normal cat-like fashion, such as under the covers when you make the bed or chasing a toy, but put a little catnip down and her interest perks up. She keeps her claws in when she does play. When she is tired of you petting her she slaps you with her paw. It's quite the sensation. She likes to sit beside you on a chair for a nap. Sometimes she has a lot to say. She would be an excellent companion for a single person or couple with no other animals.
