Rosemont animal shelter forced to move; 80 cats affected


Montreal's Animal Rescue Network is looking for a new home for 80 cats they've been keeping at their Rosemont-Petite-Patrie facility — animals which might otherwise be put down.

They're being housed in an industrial building, but a 2011 zoning change and a dispute with the current landlord means the facility can no longer operate at its current location.

Barbara Lisbona, who founded the Animal Rescue Network 20 years ago, says she's actively trying to find homes for the remaining cats.

"Relocation involves finding an industrial zoned place, because that's the only place you can have animals that will be legal, that would be accessible to public transportation," she says.
