Gamin, a 7-year-old miniature poodle, was given up because his family no longer had time for him. He was already an anxious dog, so this has been very difficult for him. He may snap when overwhelmed and needs a lot of space. Having another well-balanced dog in the home might take the focus off him, as he doesn't like being the centre of attention. Gamin needs an adult home with a patient guardian who won't give up on him when the going gets tough. If that sounds like you, fill out the form and ask for Gamin. For more information on Gamin or any of the other dogs available for adoption, go to www.animatch.ca.

Sweet little Nouka was born June, 2019 and has been spayed and vaccinated. She is shy at first, but getting more confident every day. She loves cuddles and is very playful. She has the softest fur that will require regular brushing to keep it tangle free. She loves being brushed though, so it’s all okay with her. She is a lovable little girl, good with other cats. She needs a patient home that will give her the time and love she needs to blossom into the sweet, confident kitty that she is. For more information regarding Nouka, please write to us at cascavaudreuil@outlook.com.

Due to multiple closures of commercial establishments in our region, The Journal’s delivery team will be concentrating their efforts to leave the maximum amount of newspapers where you can most easily and safely access them – grocery stores and pharmacies. Should this change in the immediate future, we’ll keep you posted.

This is the short story of a patriarch who ruled and lived with many creatures of his own kind for many years. Lion was a gentle but strong ruler and now he wants a quieter kingdom. His beautiful lion's coat had to be shaved due to neglect and is now growing in nicely.
He is a very friendly and affectionate cat, healthy, vetted, and clean and really wants to be part of a new family. He was born on July 31, 2013. (He told me in confidence that he didn't want the old kingdom anymore but a solid and loving furever home/kingdom). Lion is ready to move on.

For more information, please contact Anne at annebochnig@yahoo.ca.

  • Our very own delivery team are sporting gloves throughout the delivery day so that anyone picking up a newspaper will be the first set of hands touching it.

In addition to these steps taken, we also remain committed to taking care of our team. We’re requiring team members who are sick to stay...
