Cause 4 Paws is a volunteer-run cat rescue in Montreal. 

The group provides food, shelter and health care for homeless and abandoned cats in the city. 

Cause 4 Paws is a no-kill shelter, which means they’ll search for as long as it takes to find a permanent home for each cat. 

They also run a sterilization program to reduce the population of homeless cats in the city.

To support Cause 4 Paws, you can make a donation on their website or buy them supplies from their wish list.
