Sylvester is a large male who was a street rescue a couple of years ago. He was under another rescuer who became very ill & was unable to care for him as well as others. His years on the streets must not have been easy ones since he has a certain 'tough guy' look about him. It's as if he is still expecting something bad to come down on him any minute. In spite of this, he is not one to fight with other cats. In general he keeps to himself and gets along with other cats. He is reserved and although he enjoys being caressed, he does not like to be held. Sylvester appears not to have experienced a loving relationship with a human & perhaps was not treated well. He requires the right person to show him the love & positive attention he never received. Would you be that special person?

Sylvester est un grand mâle qui a vécu dans la rue plusieurs années. Un autre organisme l’avait recueilli mais il est devenu très malade et ils étaient incapables de le soigner. Ses années vécues dans la rue n’ont surement pas été faciles, car il a gardé l’habitude de regarder tout autour de lui, comme s'il s’attendait toujours à ce qu’un malheur s’abatte sur lui. Malgré cela, il ne se bats pas avec les autres chats. En général, il s’entend bien avec les autres chats. Il est réservé avec les étrangers et aime bien être caressé, mais n'aime pas être tenu dans les bras. Sylvester ne semble pas avoir connu une relation affectueuse avec un humain et peut-être n'a-t-il pas été bien traité. Il aura besoin d’une bonne personne pour lui donner l'amour et l'attention qu'il n'a jamais reçu. Serez-vous cette personne spéciale?

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.
