|The story of Arielle|
« Arielle is a five-year-old-cat. When the Refuge took her in, she was homeless and had an injured paw. In April of 2013, once her paw had healed, she participated in the feline contests of the Chien Chat & Moi pet show, hosted by Patrick Lagacé. She won 2 prizes: she came second in the first contest, judged by Patrick Lagacé, and first in the second contest, judged by employees of Royal Canin!
Unfortunately, today our champion is in serious need of dental care (cleaning and extraction of teeth). Those long months of homelessness have had a nasty effect on her mouth, with the result that she is currently suffering from a painful gingivitis. She has even lost a couple of teeth; however, their roots remain in her mouth and are infected.
As a result, Arielle is in constant pain, which is preventing her from eating properly, something that could eventually lead to additional health problems. However, the cost of the surgery and the medications she’ll need during her recovery totals $400, an amount the Refuge is sadly lacking.
This charming, well-behaved, cuddly two-time winning beauty deserves every chance at being adopted. Please help us bring the smile back to Arielle’s face! »
Donations raised: $400 Goal Reached!

October 10, 2014 : Latest news
Good news! Arielle’s dental cleaning and surgery went well. She had to have a few teeth removed, one of which was a lower canine that had cracked, the root of which was inflamed and starting to affect the structure of the bone of her lower jaw (mandible). She had a full cleaning during the surgery, so her gingivitis should be cleared up in no time. Arielle was able to leave the veterinary clinic that same night. Her foster family will take care of administering painkillers to her for four days and feeding her special food for a week.
The other good news is that Arielle has been adopted! Her foster family has decided to become her adoptive family. We are certain that Arielle will be well taken care of, and will never want for anything again. A warm thanks to Nicolas, who provided Arielle with a home and looked after her before adopting her, and to all those donors who enabled us to provide Arielle with the treatment she needed under the best conditions possible. We wish Arielle and her adopter a long and happy friendship in the years to come!
