Darcy est une grosse pantoufle qui ne demande qu'a être dans les bras. Si vous attendez trop longtemps pour le prendre il vous regardera avec des yeux de chien battu et vous encerclera la jambe de ses pattes.
Comment lui résister? C'est une boule d'amour qui aime se faire bercer comme un bébé.
Darcy a besoin de beaucoup d'attention et d'affection depuis qu'il a eu un petit AVC fin 2015. Il est beaucoup plus calme et relax et recherche la présence et le contact humain. 
Il a bien sur fait chavirer bien des coeurs mais ses marquages d'urine en dehors de la litière ont eu raison de plusieurs tentatives d'adoption.
Darcy est stérilisé mais ce marquage est probablement du a un problème de comportement (stress, anxiété, territoire...). Plusieurs solutions ont été testées mais sans succès. Il n'en reste pas moins que d'autres pistes peuvent etre explorées et que la famille idéale pour Darcy saura être patiente et très présente pour ce petit ange.

Darcy is a sweet senior cat who just wants to be hold in your arms. If you make him wait too long he will give you that sad look that no one can resist and will surround you with his paws.
He is just a lovely ball of furr you can cuddle like a baby as long as... you want!
Darcy needs a lot of love since he had a stroke end of 2015. He became much more calm and relax and he's always looking for human contact.
Of course many fell in love with him but his urinary marking out of the litter box issue has been an issue to find him a forever home. We have tried several options to change his behavior problem but none of them has been successful.
Nevertheless, other options can be explored and the perfect family for Darcy will have to be patient and pay attention to this little angel.

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.
