Tinker is a quiet, sweet guy who greets your presence with a soft meow. He loves getting attention and comes to life when you notice him and give him caresses. This is a remarkable development for Tinker who until recently barely reacted when being touched and never reached out for affection or attention. Tinker's background history is unknown except for the fact that he was one of several cats who were pulled' from a pound where they were to be euthanized the next day. Whatever he had experienced before being 'rescued' resulted in him not trusting people or expecting to receive anything positive. Although it has taken time, Tinker's sweet and warm personality has emerged since discovering that there are some people one can trust enough to open one's heart to. Tinker is mild-mannered and good natured guy who gets along well with other cats. Don't you open your heart to Tinker & prove to him that there are people who can take good care of him and will love him for the rest of his life.

Tinker est, un minet doux et calme qui salue votre arrivée avec un doux miaulement. Il aime attirer l'attention et est tellement heureux quand vous l'avez remarqué et lui aurez donné des caresses. Ceci est un développement remarquable pour Tinker qui, jusqu'à récemment, avait peine à réagir lorsque touché.  L’histoire de Tinker est inconnue, sauf pour le fait qu'il était l'un de plusieurs chats qui ont été sauvés d’une liste de chats qui devaient être euthanasiés le lendemain. Tout ce qu'il avait connu avant d'être recueilli l’avait encouragé à ne pas faire confiance aux gens et à ne rien attendre de positif venant d’eux. Avec le temps et la patience, sa douce et chaleureuse personnalité a émergé. Il a découvert qu'il y a des gens dignes de confiance et à qui on peut ouvrir son cœur. Tinker est d’une bonne humeur affable et il s’entend bien avec les autres chats. Ouvrez votre cœur à Tinker et prouvez-lui qu'il ya des gens qui peuvent prendre soin de lui et qui vont l'aimer pour le reste de sa vie.

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.
