Betsy is a beauty who stands out in a crowd due to her majestic coat and her round, magnetic eyes. She is an active, playful cat who gets along well with other cats. She is shy and very gentle and sweet. Even though Betsy was born in a home and had a lot of contact with people as a kitten, she was negatively influenced, by her mother who was a feral cat, to be fearful around people. As a result, she is anxious and uncomfortable with people and does not generally like to be touched, but is never aggressive. At times, she has been caught in the right mood, and has allowed herself to be petted but she requires a one on one close relationship with an individual who would be able to develop this with her, in order to help her to become socialized. If you are interested in working with this beautiful and scared sweetheart please contact us.

Betsy est une beauté qui se remarque au milieu de la foule en raison de son majestueux manteau et de ses yeux magnétiques. Elle est une chatte espiègle et active qui s’entend bien avec les autres chats. Elle est timide et très douce. Même si Betsy est née dans une maison et a eu beaucoup de contact avec les gens, elle a été influencée négativement par sa mère qui était sauvage. En conséquence, elle est anxieuse et mal à l'aise avec les gens et n'aime généralement pas être touché, mais n’est jamais agressive. Parfois, elle nous permet de la caresser mais elle nécessite assurément une relation étroite avec une personne patiente qui serait en mesure de développer sa confiance et de l'aider à se socialiser. Si vous êtes intéressé à travailler avec cette belle chérie s'il vous plaît, contactez-nous.

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.
