REFUGE FOR CATS (VERDUN)
The Refuge for cats (Verdun) is a registered charitable organization of 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 cats temporarily.
- Care for, vaccinate, and sterilize rescued cats.
- Organize Adoption days, where people can adopt cats who are “back on their paws” and looking for a permanent home.
Why adopt a cat from the Refuge?
Our primary interest is to end 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 lack of food, illness, the pound, 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 fit in well with you and your family.
Is there a cat whose care you want to entrust to the Refuge?
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 there is a cat whose care you would like to entrust to the Refuge, we ask that you become a foster family to the cat you would like to help until it is adopted.
