On ne peut pas donner une description de Darling sans parler de ce qu’elle et ses chatons ont vécu et comment ils ont été sauvés.  Le RSA a reçu un appel d’une minette abandonnée dehors et on a été la chercher.  Le lendemain, on s’est rendu compte qu’elle avait une très grosse montée de lait, ce qui voulait dire qu’on avait laissé ses chatons en arrière sans le savoir!  On est retourné à l’endroit où Darling a été trouvée, et on l’a relchée en espérant qu’elle nous amène à ses chatons.  Par chance on les a trouvés et ils étaient toujours en vie!  Quand on les a trouvés, les chatons avaient environ trois semaines.  La maman et les bébés sont maintenant en foyer d’accueil et attendent d’avoir des familles permanentes qui les feront oublier tout ce qu’ils ont vécu. 

Même si elle a passé l’hiver dernier dehors aussi, Darling n’est pas sauvage du tout.  Elle adore jaser et elle est affectueuse et délicate.  Regardez sa photo, on ne peut pas s’empêcher de tomber amoureux!


It’s impossible to offer a description of Darling without talking about all that she and her kittens have been through and how they were rescued.  The ARN received a call about an abandoned cat and went to pick her up.  The next day, we realized she was lactacting, which meant that we had unintentionally left her kittens behind!  We returned to the spot where she was found and let her go, hoping she would lead us to her babies.  We were very lucky to find all five of them alive.  At the time, they were just three weeks old.  The mother and babies are now in a foster home and are waiting for permanent families who will help them forget all that they have been through.

Even though she spent last winter outdoors also, Darling isn’t feral.  She is a little chatterbox, and she is affectionate and delicate.  Take a look at her photo, you can’t help but fall in love!

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.
