Places To Visit While In Montreal

1. Contemporary Montreal Art Museum

The place was established early 1964 and is known to showcase most of the famously known contemporary art which are found at the globe. The place has many digital and paintings, sound works, ephemeral pieces, installations, sculptures, and many other things. The place is abbreviated as the MAC which means the Montreal Art Contemporary Museum and can organize many artistic festival and performance events. The place is situated near the Spectacles of Quartier which is the best cultural hub that has always been known for making the art be the very integral part of Montreal’s daily life.

The place is also linked together with some intricate tunnel networks which comprise of about a total of 20 miles.

Very many people around the world are enthusiastic about traveling. They take ample time in planning about their next vacation destination and so on. Probably, not all own their personal vehicles. That’s why there’re several car rental companies currently. Their main aim is to bridge this gap and help their clientele in making their dream come true. However, as a prospective client, there’re factors which you should consider as you make car rental comparison with different companies. These should really help you in making an informed decision. Above that, to avoid making unnecessary mistakes.



Sometimes, these car rental companies withdraw from giving their customers information about their current discounts. Therefore, it’s your obligation as the client to inquire more. You shouldn’t hesitate in asking because there’re several car rental companies which offer good discounts. This way, they’re able to gain and retain more clients.


Occasionally, these car rental companies give their customers certain offers. This may vary from one season to another. They do this to attract their customers and also motivate them. Hence, they’re able to retain them for quite some time. Therefore, you should always inquire about this information before making the rental arrangements. You can be lucky and easily land a great deal.


Most of the time the fuel charge is always inclusive of the rental charge for the car. Therefore, paying for the fuel separately again will be like double charges. Hence, it ain’t acceptable. Furthermore, fueling the vehicle yourself will be more cost-effective than letting the company do it for you.


The vehicles for rental are already covered comprehensively by the insurance companies. Therefore, it doesn’t make any sense at all to buy another cover for the car.



Don’t be in a hurry. Take your time to counter-check that the car is in good order before


Why Colorado Should be your Destination This Summer

America is undoubtedly beautiful, but Colorado, Oh my! Colorado is in its own league. It’s literally heaven on earth and you would want to miss on any chance you get to visit the place. Situated in the western part of the U.S, Colorado prides itself with being one of the best scenic locations and with more than 300 days of sunshine throughout the year, having a perfect summer vacation there is one of the easiest goals to achieve. If you are going to use car rental services (like Enterprise car rental Montreal , in case you are driving from Canada like me) you better brace yourself because you will definitely get carried away. From Denver through El Paso right
to the end in Baca, you wouldn’t know when to stop!


Best picks for Adrenaline Junkies

If you are a hiker and an adrenaline junkie you wouldn’t want to miss on your adrenaline fix in Telluride. The hike in Via Ferrata will bring you to your knees. If you are not cut out for heights, just don’t attempt the hike. 4th Cass Ridge in the San Juan Mountains will also be good for an adrenaline fix. If you are going to use car rental services, ensure that the car you have picked is fit for off-road drives. If you are such a thrill seeker, then you will not leave Colorado without setting foot on the Royal Gorge Bridge in Canon City. Not only will you be 876 feet above the ground standing on the highest bridge in America, there is also a zip line that goes across the canyon and a fun swing that will dangle you at not less than 1000 feet above the ground where you will have a bird’s eye view of the Arkansas River. There are many more other places to visit and get thrilled, and these also include


  1. The Great Sand Dunes National Park in San Luis Valley

  1. Pikes Peak Highway in the Colorado Springs

  1. Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad

  1. Paradise Cove in Guffey

  1. Ouray Ice park

Thank You for Your Past Support

June 2018

To Our Valued Friends, Donors and Supporters,

I am writing to ask you to consider a mid-year contribution to our Annual Fund.

Your fully tax-deductible contribution of any amount would provide immediate and vital support for all of our organization’s operations. We ALL are receiving so very many of these appeals, increasing each year, from worthy non-profit causes and organizations. How to prioritize? A few dollars to each or a big sum to one and then, which one?! I’ve discovered that with the recent downfall and ensuing personal hardships, some kind people are sending $1-5 per cat pledges to those of us who Pull from the Shelter, as they can’t afford a big donation to anyone anymore. And on top of this situation, we have the (gulp!) election this Fall!

If it helps to know where your contribution, however small, would be applied, here’s an example:

$35-$50: A month’s food supply for 1 fostered cat 

$50-$75: 1 low-cost spay/neuter

$100-$150: Litter and food for 2 cats for 2 weeks

$250 + up: 10 days of boarding for an animal not within a foster home or a portion of a vet bill.

Any time a cat comes into our system, their initial vet cost varies between $100 -$1000

As you can see, the everyday needs of our animals rely on your generous contributions. We have been in operation for over two decades but this is only our 7th year of offering tax-deductions, since receiving our non-profit status from the IRS.

You can help us now by making an instant donation through PayPal.

UPDATE: Lucca is gorgeous again!

UPDATE: Lucca is healing beautifully in his new, loving foster home:

Thanks to everyone who helped with is medical expenses and sent notes of love and encouragement.  His story is below:

UPDATE: A kind person has come forward and offered to provide Lucca with a safe, loving foster home in which to heal.  He is still in need of a purrmanent, fur-ever home and we are still in need of some help to pay his significant and ongoing medical expenses.

Won’t you kindly share his story with anyone you feel might be willing to help? Thank you!


Lucca (formerly known as Mitty Kitty) came to us from the shelter where he was on “death row.” You can see from the video below why lots of people urged us to save him:

We were able to pull him, place him in a temporary foster home and take care of his vetting and neutering while we worked to find him a fur-ever home.

Once he had healed from his neutering he was adopted by a couple in Brooklyn. However, after a few days they returned him to us. He was placed back into the temporary foster, but his skin condition had deteriorated due to the stress of being in an unfriendly adoption.

The subsequent dermatological issues are presumed stemming from shelter and exacerbated by a difficult adoption. But whatever the cause, at some point along the way, he was exposed to ringworm (a fungal infection very common in cats and having nothing to do with worms) and the stress of bouncing from shelter to foster, to adopter and back again has compromised his immune system and allowed the infection to spread quickly.

So now this handsome, cuddly darling has gone from this ….


To this …


The vet has assured us that Lucca has a good prognosis with treatment.  However, he has to be treated at their office right now because his temporary foster home has other cats that would be at risk for the infection.  This means that we are currently paying daily boarding fees in addition to his medicine and treatment costs.

Lucca needs your help: 

The vet has assured us …
