Archie is a good-.looking boy but a bit of a 'tough' character, having come from a home with many cats crammed into two rooms. Leroy and Archie were in the same home and they received little attention and few if any caresses while in this home. In the past year and a half Archie has made progress and now accepts caresses and comes to be petted. Despite this, he is still nervous and anxious near people. He is conflicted since, on one hand he is afraid and at the same time yearns to be touched and receive cuddles. His development into a more socialized and friendly cat will take time. He is in his comfort zone when he is with other cats. He is active and playful and tends to seek caresses from other cats. It will take a special home who could take in Archie and be willing and patient enough to invest time & energy to help him become socialized. If you think you are willing and capable, please consider Archie or any one of the cats that need to become socialized.

Archie est un magnifique mâle mais un « petit caractère de bum». Il vient d'une maison dans laquelle il y avait beaucoup de chats entassés dans deux chambres. Leroy et Archie étaient tous les deux dans cette maison dans laquelle ils ont reçu peu d'attention et peu (ou pas) de caresses. Dans la dernière année et demie Archie a fait de beaux progrès et maintenant il accepte les caresses et vient même se faire caresser. Malgré cela, il est toujours nerveux et anxieux près des gens. Il se sent souvent en « conflit » puisque, d'une part, il se méfie et en même temps, il aspire à recevoir de l’affection et des câlins. Il a encore besoin de temps et de patience s’épanouir en un chat sociabilisé et affectueux. Il est dans sa zone de confort quand il est avec les autres chats. Il est actif et ludique et tend à chercher des caresses des autres chats. Il lui faudra une maison spéciale avec des gens assez patients pour investir du temps et de l'énergie pour l'aider à s’épanouir. Si vous pensez que vous êtes prêt et capable, s'il vous plaît envisager Archie ou un autre de ces chats qui ont besoin d’être sociabilisé.

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.
