About Me Founded on October 2, 2002, by Claudia Vecchio and Corinne Thaw, ORA Organization for the Rescue of Animals ( is operating in and around the Greater Toronto Area, working for the well-being and protection of all our fellow animals.

ORA's animal rescues thrive within a network of foster homes until they are adopted out into forever loving homes. 100% volunteer run, with zero government funding and no shelter to speak of, ORA relies solely upon the supportive generosity of members and donors to fund our programs and rescue operations.

ORA's adoption application and pre-adoption screening process ensure that our rescued cats and dogs are always matched with only the most suitable and loving owners.

The cost of adoption at ORA are as follows:
$150.00 dollars for cats (incl. spay or neuter)
$400.00 dollars for dogs (incl. spay or neuter)

For more INFORMATION, to ADOPT/SPONSOR, to VOLUNTEER, and to DONATE in support of ORA's rescue missions and animal care programs:

    Thanks for the introduction and friend request.   I did recently confirm it, and am looking forward to picking your brain about how to find good homes for stray animals.
