This week’s Animal Awareness Wednesday feature is on the Hungry and Homeless Cat Rescue!
(Formerly known as HHWCC – Hungry & Homeless in the World’s Coldest Capital)
HHCR is an animal rescue organization in Ottawa, Ontario. Their goal is to save injured or found cats and try to find them permanent suitable homes. When they find or hear of a cat or family living outside on their own, a member of HHCR finds them and evaluates their situation.
In almost all cases the animals are undernourished, hurt, diseased, parasitic, dirty and sometimes freezing to death. Medical help is arranged for any cat suffering from injuries or illness. The cats are taken to a Vet for evaluation and assistance as soon as possible.
All cats are at temporary foster homes until adopted. They rely on volunteers and donations from kind individuals who care. Fosterers and adoption homes are evaluated to ensure the best situation for the cat(s).
