Chatopia Rescue Needs To Be Saved!
Our need is urgent. So many lives depend on your support.
Chatopia Cat Rescue is Canadian charitable volunteer organization dedicated to the health, safety and welfare of abandoned, abused and neglected cats that specializes in purebreeds. We received a distress call for help from animal control just south of Montreal, Quebec concerning more than 75 purebred cats living in unfathomable conditions in a kitten mill. All the cats were removed by the police and 45 of them were placed in Chatopia's care.
Highland lynx, Savannahs, Chausies, and Mohava bobs. EVERY single cat exhibited signs of neglect from malnutrition, upper respitory infections, eye infections, ear infections, severe dehydration, open wounds, a cat with broken back and a few with their tails cut off. These cats were dying. Litters of kittens were born dead. Their mothers too weak, dehydrated and too full of infection to help them survive. Once they arrived at Chatopia, our amazing volunteers jumped into action where each cat received a warm bed, food, clean litter and fresh water....

Animals in Need
Working within close proximity of the Montreal SPCA, no animal in need is turned away. (In some instances, we also handle purebred pet surrenders - interview and evaluation required).
By rescuing, fostering and rehabilitating these animals physically and behaviorally, Chatopia gives these animals a second chance eventually placing them into forever homes.

Our Chatopia Center is a unique environment
Our wonderful Chatopia center allows the cats to have freedom in a home-like environment (no cages), a place that is happy and bright. Our warm and friendly Chatopia setting certainly challenges current public perceptions of abandoned animals and the typical animal shelter!
Share on Social Media to help spread the word
Please Share our Facebook posts and our website on your Facebook page and website. Arrange for a visit to the Chatopia center (our cats love the attention). You can become an active participant toward increasing public awareness that rescued animals can indeed become wonderful family pets!
Chatopia works with several other rescue organizations, SPCA's, Animal Control's, security, police, and animal cruelty inspectors to ensure that no animal is turned away, so while we do focus on purebred rescues, our neighbours gladly step in when needed. Our physical shelter is right next door to the Montreal SPCA.
The Montreal SPCA, as a large unlimited admission shelter, is able to save the number of lives that it does due its ability to place animals not only through our own programs but also through the important work of rescue organizations and other community partners. Working with rescue organizations is an essential part of shelter work and the Montreal SPCA appreciates the support and collaboration of rescue organizations that choose to work with us to help us achieve our mission.
We feel as though we owe you a debt of gratitude, and I am sure the cats agree. Chip and Augusta would never have been able to settle in and let their guards down like they already have in our home had they not been so warmly and kindly cared for.Sara Simpson and Boris the Himalayan
I don't think that coming out of the environments they they were found in, either of them would ever have been able to trust us so quickly had they not come to know how caring and gentle people could be during their stays in Chatopia.John C. Marshall and Nikita the Bengal
I believe all of your care and attention in such a safe and warm environment readied them for a loving home.Jane Findley and Harry the Savannah
