The Cambridge Homeless Cat Rescue is having their annual garage sale this Saturday between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. at 18 Woolley Street, Cambridge.

All the proceeds will be going towards paying for spay & neuter surgeries for the over 30 kittens in their care. 

Items in the garage sale will range from kitchen appliances, clothing and vintage items and are being supplied by volunteers from the rescue.

"We have about 35 kittens that need to be spayed and neutered so they can be ready for adoption," said Nicky Majaury, board member of CHCR. "We are trying to do everything we can possibly think of to raise funds to help these cats."

The CHCR is a non-profit volunteer based animal welfare program dedicated to rescuing homeless cats off the streets of Cambridge and Waterloo region. They have been saving cats for almost a year and help rehabilitate feral cats as well as care for kittens until they can be adopted. 

Since their founding, CHCR has saved over 130 cats from the streets. They care for and supply food and medical attention to several cat colonies throughout the city. 

“We recognized a need right in the Cambridge area for trapping and TNR(trap, neuter, return) for the vast number of feral cats living on the streets to help reduce and eventually remove them from existence, like what has been done with stray dogs,” said the CHCR website.

To donate or see the cats available for adoption, visit their website for more information. Donations of cat food and litter is also welcomed at the garage sale.
