Our mission and our values


The Refuge for cats Verdun is a registered non-profit organization in Montreal (QC), founded on May 3, 1999 and managed by a network of volunteers. The mission of our non-profit organization is to rescue abandoned cats and find them adoptive families, to promote the importance of sterilization, and to inform people of the consequences of abandoning animals. The Refuge for cats Verdun is a no-kill shelter.

What we do:
  • Seek to protect all cats and encourage people to take good care of them.
  • Have the cats we rescue examined by a veterinarian.
  • Find foster families who will care for the cats temporarily.
  • Provide medical care, vaccinate, and sterilize rescued cats living in foster homes.
  • Make sure that cats who have been treated and ready for adoption are matched with a family that will provide them with a permanent and caring home.

Why adopt a cat from the Refuge?

Our primary interest is to fight against the abandonment of cats and to ensure that they get the quality of life they deserve. We want to make sure that cats don’t have to face the harsh realities that come along with being homeless, like the lack of food, illness, cold, cruelty, injury, and euthanasia. By adopting a cat from us, you will be contributing to his or her well-being and you will have a companion who is eternally grateful to you. All of our cats have been examined by a veterinarian, cured of any illness, dewormed, defleaed, vaccinated, sterilized, and tested for FIV/leukemia when necessary. We are volunteers who are passionate about cats and have their best interests at heart. Because they live with our foster families, we know our cats well, so we can recommend a cat that will be the perfect fit for you and your family.

Where to find us?

The Refuge for cats Verdun does not have a physical shelter space. All the cats that we take in live with foster families until they are adopted. We are in desperate need of more foster families. For this reason, if you are interested in being part of a good cause, we invite you to fill out the form to BECOME A FOSTER FAMILY. Please visit our section HOW TO HELP for more information.
