It all began with an amazing rescue story, which I hope may touch your hearts same way it touched mine. I first heard about Special Ones Cat rescue in connection to the story of Angel, an abused kitten left paralyzed at the McDonald’s at Bathurst/Dundas intersection in Toronto on the cold night of Nov 17, 2012. Special Ones’ founder and dedicated cat rescuer of many years Karen Beharell took Angel in, adopted her and up to now is taking wonderful care of this cat, without leaving a hope Angel may walk again one day. This story made national news and touched the hearts of many.
Special Ones is a small independent rescue located in Oakville, Ontario, founded 6 years ago by Karen Beharell. The Rescue has neither subsidies nor large private donations and relies entirely on a handful of supporters and volunteers in its noble mission to save precious feline lives. SOCR pulls many abandoned cats from Hamilton Animal Services` death row, rescues cats from the streets and abusive situations.Karen often takes in seniors, cats with special needs (such as Angel), sick cats in need of surgeries and extensive veterinary treatment, and ferals in need of socialization. She nurses sick back to health and socializes street cats, making them friendly with other cats, dogs and humans. In the 6 years of its existence SOCR has found new permanent loving homes for over 200 cats. Currently we have about 80 furry residents in need of homes – of all genders and ages, and all funny and cuddly.
Special Ones is a tiny rescue with a huge heart. SOCR takes on the most difficult cases, as Karen has a principle – Leave no Cat behind.
if you are thinking about adding a new feline family member, please consider adopting from Special Ones !
