The Animal Rescue Network is a no-kill non-profit organization, staffed entirely by volunteers, dedicated to giving abandoned and/or abused cats a second chance at a happy life
About ANIMAL RESCUE NETWORK
The Animal Rescue Network (A.R.N.) was founded in 1994 by ex-S.P.C.A. members who wanted a better, no-kill alternative for our lost/abused/abandoned cats.
Shelter and Foster Homes: The ARN operates a no-kill shelter as well as a community-based network of foster homes where unwanted cats are cared for. The shelter is divided into a number of rooms, including some dedicated to caring for cats with special needs while they wait for an understanding home. No animals are euthanized unless compassion for a sick and suffering animal demands euthanasia.
Adoptions: The ARN holds weekly adoption clinics at pet supply stores throughout the Montreal area and at our shelter to find permanent homes for our cats. All new adoption homes are carefully screened.
Rescue and Sterilization: The ARN works with the community to rescue animals from abusive homes and from perishing in the cold after abandonment. All rescued animals are sterilized and vaccinated. We also provide assistance to the public with a low-cost sterilization reference service. We believe that by encouraging and facilitating pet sterilization, we are helping to solve the problem of animal overpopulation and abandonment at its source.
