Actually, there is a telephone number under "contact TCR" on their web site. They have different people for different areas of the city so the woman I work with may not be in your area. You'd probably have more luck contacting them directly and asking if they could use the items.
Like I said, they are a wonderful rescue. They do so much to help the strays/ferals in TO and area. I personally have had over 20 cats done through them.
Could you PM me the addy for the blog you read? It would be wonderful to read.
