Cette fiche fait partie d’une liste de courtoisie. Le RSA n’est pas responsable de l’adoption de ce chat. Pour l’adoption, veuillez écrire à l'adresse suivante : ou téléphonez au 438-938-0569

Marco est réservé, timide et n'est pas à l'aise avec le contact humain. Par contre, il est à l'aise avec les autres chats. Il est de la même maison que Leroy et d'autres qui ont été entassés dans une chambre et ont rarement été touchés ou caressés par des humains. En conséquence, Marco, ainsi que bien d'autres, manque de socialisation, a peur des gens et n’est pas à l'aise d'être touché. Cette situation peut changer considérablement si ces chats sont placés dans une vraie maison et peuvent recevoir une attention particulière. Ils deviendront progressivement moins craintifs et seront en mesure de venir au-devant des gens. Un jour ils seront affectueux. Toute personne qui prend ces chats doit être patiente, douce et prête à investir du temps et de l'énergie jusqu'à ce que ces minous développent la confiance envers les humains. Une fois que cela se produira, le minet changera drastiquement et se transformera en un chat affectueux. Marco a déjà démontré que, quand il est détendu, il aime être choyé et recevoir de l’attention. Quand il sera dans une maison, Marco va continuer à s’épanouir et sera plus socialisé.

Marco is reserved and timid and is not comfortable with human contact. Marco is comfortable with other cats. He is from the same home as Leroy and others who were packed into one room and were rarely touched or caressed by anyone. Consequently he, as well as others, lacked socialisation and are afraid of people & not comfortable being touched. This situation can change considerably if these cats are placed in a home and receive individual attention and touching. They will gradually become less fearful and will be able to attach to people & become much more affectionate. Anyone who takes these cats must be patient, gentle and ready to invest more time and energy until these kitties develop trust and can bond. Once this occurs the kitty will change and turn into an affectionate cat. Marco already has demonstrated that, when he is relaxed, he enjoys being petted and receiving attention. When he goes to his forever home, Marco will continue to change and become socialized.

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.
