Small Things Cats: This local rescue adopts out nearly a cat a day

Small Things Cats, a Greater Sudbury cat rescue run by a group of volunteer self-professed crazy cat ladies and a few crazy cat men, has done amazing things out of its small Hazel Street headquarters. Now nearly a decade old, the rescue works with the City of Greater Sudbury Animal Shelter in Wahnapitae to make sure the adult cats that end up in the shelter find their “fur-ever” homes. Small Things previously worked with the city's former shelter services contractor, Rainbow District Animal Shelter, before the city took its shelter services in-house in 2016. The rescue, which does same-day adoptions, and has fees ranging from $60 to $120, depending on the cat's age, has a pretty amazing adoption rate — 359 in 2017 and 320 in 2018. That's nearly one cat per day. When Small Things gets low on cats — they've had up to 15 in the shop at once — the city shelter drops off a new batch of cats that are newly neutered and spayed.
