Balou a passé les 6 premiers mois de sa vie dehors avec ses frères et sœur. Il a été socialisé par sa famille d’accueil qui ne peut plus le garder parce qu’ils ont cinq autres chats. Il est aussi doux et gentil qu’il est timide. Il a besoin d’espace parce qu’il aime courir et jouer avec les autres chats. Il serait très malheureux sans la présence d’un autre chat, ou peut-être même d’un gentil chien habitué aux chats. Comme il est très attaché à sa famille actuelle, il aura besoin de patience jusqu’à ce qu’il soit habitué à son nouveau foyer. Il sera le compagnon parfait de votre chat.


Balou spent the first six weeks of his life outdoors with his siblings. Balou was socialized by a foster family who cannot keep him because of their existing brood of five cats. Balou his sweet and easy but is also shy. He needs space so that he can run and play with another young cat. Balou would be miserable without the presence of another cat or, possibly, that of a friendly dog. Since Balou is quite attached to his present home, he will need time in order to familiarize himself with his new surroundings. Balou will be the perfect companion of your cat.

About Animal Rescue Network/Reseau Secours Animal

About Our Rescue Group...

The Animal Rescue Network's mission is to bring about a day when no unwanted animals are destroyed in shelters or pounds, and when every cat and dog can be ensured a happy life in a good home.

We are the largest no-kill shelter in Quebec, run entirely by volunteers. We receive no funding of any kind and rely entirely on private donations to sustain and care for all the animals at our shelter.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold weekly adoption clinics at pet supply stores throughout the Montreal area, and the South Shore to find permanent homes for our cats and dogs.
We'd love to meet you at our next adoption clinic!

At our last adoption clinic, we had 5 cats adopted!

  • Our Adoption Process...

    All new adoption homes are carefully screened to determine if they are suitable. There is an adoption fee that includes the sterilization, initial vaccination of every animal, testing for FIV and FeLV of all cats at the shelter, and a 21 days trial period. A contract is always signed between the ARN and the adopter for their protection. A follow-up by an ARN adoption coordinator is often done either by telephone or by visit, and we also offer help/cousel for the life of the cat.
