It’s Time for the Seventh Annual Purrfect Gala!


Once a year, we let our hair down, lint roller the cat hairs off our clothes, and go out for a fabulous round of entertainment and fun.  We invite you to join us for a memorable evening of live music, comedy, a silent auction and a donation drive!  Who says charity and fundraising can’t be a blast?

Our 7th annual Purrfect Gala takes place this year on Sunday, November 6, 2016 between 3:30 and 8:30pm at Statlers Lounge (487 Church Street).

All proceeds go toward essential rescue and vetting costs.  You’ll be helping us enormously with the animals we rescue.  And with the holidays around the corner, the silent auction is a perfect opportunity to pick up some great gifts while supporting a good cause.  Have a pint with us and celebrate!


PAW Times Three!


It’s not a hallucination, you’re really seeing in threes!  Cat Busters and Pet Valu are celebrating Pet Appreciation Weekend and National Adoption Weekend again by hosting an Adoption Day this Saturday at THREE LOCATIONS! Three times the cute, three times the cuddles, three times the opportunity to support our cause.

You can find us at the Laird (95 Laird Drive, Unit 3), Jones & Danforth (869 Danforth Ave) and Cabbagetown (240 Carlton St) shops with many of our wonderful, adoptable rescues.

Come play with our beautiful kitties, say hello to our volunteers, do your shopping, and also donate to Pet Valu’s Pet Food Bank Program, which has long been making significant food contributions to charities like Cat Busters!

Please see our News & Events page for details and spread the word!

The Sixth Annual CBAR Purrfect Gala!

The purrfect gala

If you happen to be downtown on Sunday November 22, 2015 between 4:00 to 8:30 pm, with nothing to do, tired of Christmas shopping and looking to have some fun, drop by Statlers Lounge (487 Church Street), take a load off your feet, and enjoy some fabulous entertainment and silliness.

We have the talented Kevin Wong and Natasha Dee Buckeridge headlining the event, some comedy and a lot of music for everyone.  We also have our annual silent auction that puts wonderful offers and gifts up for grabs, while helping us with the critically important task of fundraising.

All the money raised goes directly towards necessary vetting costs.  Read some of our blog posts to learn how the funds we raise have helped rescues, like the saga of Tripod — the beautiful three-legged feral — and her litter of kittens.

Hope to see you there!

The Purrfect Gala 2014

Milk and cookies.  Batman and Robin.  Cats and catnip.  Like a lot of things that go well together, fundraisers and parties were meant to be.  What’s not to like about raising money for a good cause while having fun?

Cat Busters is hosting its Fifth Annual Purrfect Gala fundraiser this Sunday Nov 9.  Once again, Statlers Lounge (487 Church St.) has stepped up to the plate and offered their venue for the event.  From 4:00 to 8:00pm, our MC will lead you through an evening of live music, entertainers, comedy, fortune telling, and even Santa.  As you sip your beer or cocktails, feel free to also peruse the numerous items that are up for bidding in our Silent Auction.  It’s a great opportunity to get your holiday shopping done and even treat yourself to some goodies.

All proceeds go straight to the veterinary care of our rescues — everything from spaying/neutering to critical surgeries for those in dire need.  Remember the rescue (and eventual adoption, yay!) of sweet Tripod, the feral who was found with a leg missing?  Last year’s Gala was a roaring success, which went a long way towards helping these special cats.  Help us repeat (and perhaps even surpass) that happy story!
