We are a small, Montreal-based grassroots group, headed by an experienced animal rescue and placement person. Our mission is to find new homes for the abandoned and homeless cats and dogs that find their way to us.
Because we do not operate an animal shelter, we rely on a network of friends, fosters, associates and contacts to successfully place our cats and dogs in loving and permanent homes.
Our cats and dogs are either compassionate placements, or they have been rescued from bad situations. The success we've had to date in finding homes reflects our honest and open approach. What guides us is our desire to do 'what's best for the animals' at all times.
We are careful to place the right animal with the most compatible person possible. Therefore, an interview is necessary before any adoption is completed and we do a follow-up after placement. There is an adoption fee to help recover part of the costs incurred so that we can help the next animal in need.
We ask people to sign an Adoption Agreement before an animal is placed with them. If, in the future, the animal cannot be kept for any reason, we expect the animal to be returned to us.
Our dogs, in particular, are companion animals. They are expected to live indoors. They should never be allowed to run loose in the community.
All of our animals are veterinarian-checked, vaccinated and spayed/neutered. Cats are tested for FIV and FelV. Our animals are free of fleas, and are de-wormed when necessary. We offer full disclosure of any past, known or continuing medical condition.
