Are you unable to adopt an animal but want to help our cats at the ARN?
With a donation of $20/month you can sponsor a cat of your choice and receive news and photos of them every three months.
Any donations exceeding $10 are tax deductible and you are thus eligible for a receipt. In order to calculate the tax credit to which you are entitled, please consult the following link: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/chrts-gvng/dnrs/svngs/menu-eng.html
Currently, each cat at our shelter is brought to the veterinarian as soon as it is brought to the shelter. Each cat is also brought to the vet if they need to be vaccinated or when they are suffering from an unknown health problem. The sponsoring program was designed to help provide visits to the veterinarian for cats who need it and to facilitate the process of adoption. Your financial contribution will allow the sickest cats to receive regular visits to the vet and the specialized care they need.
Your donation will not only be used for the cat you choose to sponsor but also will provide care for all the cats and their needs at our shelter. Sadly, some cats in the sponsoring program are never chosen. Therefore, it is necessary and our responsibility to ensure equal chances and care to all our darlings! This is where your donations come into use! On their behalf, we thank you in advance!
Why a new sponsorship program?
In a shelter of course there are many adoptions, new arrivals and some deaths.
There is also, and above all, the everyday life. The one that makes us like to come to the shelter to spend time with our little ones. This daily life is rich in events of all kinds: friendships that are made, couples that are formed, the progress of each cat, the introduction of a new one, adoptions and sometimes deaths.
In addition to the opportunity to raise funds, this program will allow us to:
1. To introduce donors to the 120 cats in the shelter
2. To show that there are not only sick and unhealthy cats, but also happy and healthy cats
3. To share with the public what life in the shelter is like for our cats on a daily basis
4. To give the desire to become a volunteer
Just like sponsorship for an individual cat:
1. Monthly donation of 20$ for 1 room
2. Possibility to sponsor several rooms
3. News every 3 months from the sponsored room
What will the funds be used for? Cover some medical expenses, help purchase specialized food, help purchase regular food occasionally

Sponsor the mystery cat!
The sponsorship was set up to support the veterinary costs of cats with chronic diseases with little chance of adoption. However, a new concept comes to sponsorship, the mystery cat! If you decide to choose to sponsor the mystery cat, you will receive news and photos of a cat newly arrived at the shelter whose health care needs veterinary care. You will be able to follow the evolution of the state of health of the cat until it is in good health again. Once the kitty is healthy, a new cat will become the mystery cat and a new story will be sent to you.
