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!


We received an email asking for help with a pregnant cat that was living outdoors. We were happy to bring this beautiful cat into our care. She gave birth to 7 adorable kittens, but sadly only three survived. These three kittens have all found their forever home and now it is Penny's turn to be the center of attention.

Penny is a 2 year old female with beautiful markings. She enjoys sitting in the windowsill watching the squirrels and birds in the front yard tree. She enjoys playtime with the wand that has bells and feathers on it and will now take treats from your hand quite willingly. Her favorite game is head bump. You simply get on your knees and lightly bump heads with her and say bump and she keeps coming back for more. You will have no fear of furniture being scratched at as she has her own scratching ramps and uses them all the time. 

Penny's first foster home was with a cat friendly dog who she had no issues with and also was fine with the grandchildren who came to visit. We had to move her as she was not thrilled with the other adult cats in the foster home. Penny was never aggressive towards them. She just avoided them. We wanted her to be as happy as possible so she was moved into a foster home with no other pets and is just loving it.

Looking for a lovely companion to keep you company, Penny is the one!
