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!


The emails asking for help never end and Winnie was one of them. Winnie was living in the country with her three adorable kittens (also brought into our care). Never knowing what awaits us until we get there but, we went prepared with traps and a possible long day of waiting. This was the easiest rescue I have ever done and these don't happen often. We were able to simply pick Winnie and her kittens up and place them in a carrier for their ride to the vet. Her mother duties are over and she will never have to worry about another litter of kittens. All her kittens have been adopted.

This is what the foster mom has to say about her: Winnie is a sweet and loving girl. She would do well in a quiet and low place household. She doesn't seem to be bothered by other cats. Winnie has come out of her shell even more. She has been fine with my dogs.. so yay! She loves to kneed and purr. She loves to have company and is a great companion to snuggle and watch movies with. Looking for a "couch" buddy" Winnie is your girl.
