My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Joker est un beau chat qui est arrivé en février 2020 à notre refuge avec son frère Robin. Il a progressé plus rapidement que son frère en terme de socialisation et c'est pourquoi il est maintenant disponible après 2 ans de dur travail! Joker ne sera probablement jamais le genre de chat qui viendra dormir sur vos genoux ou qui se laissera prendre dans les bras. Toutefois, cela ne veut pas dire qu'il n'a pas le droit lui aussi à une bonne famille pour la vie! Il a tellement progressé en 2 ans, c'est vraiment un chat très brave. Il aime tellement le jeu et les gâteries qu'au fil du temps il a commencé à nous faire de plus en plus confiance. Il roucoule beaucoup et quand il est excité il sonne comme un petit oiseau. Il ne se laisse pas manipuler facilement, donc une famille habituée avec les chats sera préférable pour lui. Il ne s'entend pas toujours bien avec ses compagnons félins, donc nous désirons le placer dans une maison où il sera seul ou il aura un maximum de 1 compagnon félin. Évidemment, il va sans dire qu'il ne sera pas un bon match pour une famille avec des enfants. Il aura besoin de temps pour s'adapter, mais après quelques semaines il devrait trouver ses aises. L'important est d'être patient avec lui et de travailler tous les jours pour le rendre plus à l'aise avec les humains. Il a plus d'un an, donc les frais d'adoption pour lui sont de 290$. Il est stérilisé, vacciné et micropucé. Il a été testé négatif pour le virus de l'immunodéficience féline (VIF) et pour la leucose féline (FeLV). Des assurances santé de 6 semaines viennent avec son adoption. Vous pourrez avoir recours à l'aide de l'équipe des adoptions aussi longtemps que vous en aurez besoin. Vous avez aussi droit à une consultation vidéo gratuite de 30 minutes pendant le premier mois suivant l'adoption avec notre consultante en comportement félin FelineGood ( ).      


Afin d'avoir une chance de l'adopter, veuillez remplir notre formulaire d'adoption directement sur notre site web: 



Joker is a beautiful cat who arrived in February 2020 at our shelter with his brother Robin. He has progressed faster than his brother in terms of socialization and that is why he is now available after 2 years of hard work! Joker will probably never be the kind of cat that will come and sleep on your lap or let you hold him. However, that doesn't mean that he doesn't have the right to a good forever family! He has progressed so much in 2 years, he is really a very brave cat. He loves to play and to be spoiled so much that over time he has started to trust us more and more. He coos a lot and when he is excited he sounds like a little bird. He is not easily handled, so a family used to cats will be better for him. He doesn't always get on well with his feline companions, so we'd like to place him in a home where he'll be alone or have a maximum of 1 feline companion. Obviously, it goes without saying that he will not be a good match for a family with kids. He will need time to adjust, but after a few weeks he should find his feet. The important thing is to be patient with him and work every day to make him more comfortable with humans.He is over 1 year old so the adoption fees for him are $290. He is sterilized, vaccinated and microchipped. He tested negative for the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and for the feline leukaemia virus (FeLV). Health insurances are offered for the first 6 weeks following adoption. You will also have access to the help of the adoption team as long as you need it. You will also have access to a free 30 minutes video consultation within the first month following adoption with our cat behaviour consultant FelineGood ( ).

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

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.

Go meet their 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!
