Send a Birthday Wish to ORA!

The Organization for the Rescue of Animals (ORA) has a very special birthday on July 14th… Claudia Vecchio’s birthday! 


Claudia, the founder of ORA, is all about the animals. For the last thirty years, she has been tirelessly dedicated to rescuing, working/advocating for and helping animals of all kinds in need. And she has no intention of stopping anytime soon. 

If you would like to wish Claudia a very happy birthday this year, please donate $10 or more between now and the end of July to help ORA meet its daily animal food, cleaning, medical and dental care needs for the rest of this month. 

Your donation will not only warm Claudia’s heart on her birthday, you’ll also help ORA continue to furnish our mutual furry friends with the love, care, and attention they both need and deserve every day.

Donate via: Canada Helps at

Donate by mail: P.O. Box 22608, 300 Coxwell Ave, Toronto ON M4L 3W7 Canada 

Be sure to tell your family and friends as well!  

Remember that animal rescue never ends with the rescue. The rescued animals living at ORA's sanctuary and in ORA's active foster care network continue to need all the help they can get, every day, day in and day out, 365 days a year. 

So we encourage you to think of ORA and make a donation and/or sign up for monthly sponsorship. 

Tax receipts will be issued for every mailed donation over $25 and all online donations. 

Thank you for reading and for your support! If you would like to volunteer or connect with ORA, please visit us at to find out how you can help and join the team today.

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)

My Philosophy ORA. For the Love and Respect of All Animals.
What Gives Me Hope The Cats, Dogs and Volunteers of ORA.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by divert much needed funds and municipal energy towards supporting and building awareness for small local rescue groups; convert all animal pounds into no-kill shelters; and run extensive and ongoing community pet care, TNR and speuter education programs.
What/who changed my life and why founding ORA, when you work for the animals out of compassion and love, you are in harmony and in peace with nature.

    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.
