Falling in Love With Animals at Refuge Pageau

While I was in Rouyn-Noranda Quebec for FME, the nice people at Abitibi-Témiscamingue Tourism offered us fun activities to do in the area. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to see animals at Refuge Pageau.

On our way there, we made a stop where we climbed up a super high staircase to look at this beautiful view.

It took us over an hour and a half to get to the refuge but it was worth the wait. The refuge is a shelter for wild animals who were injured or orphaned. The employees care for the animals in hope to some day return them to the wild, or provide longterm shelter for those who can’t survive in the big world. The animals were fed with food that supermarkets were going to throw away, some of which still looked perfectly fine (which says a lot about consumerism). Hopefully, more stores catch on and do the same!

We fell in love with a lot of animals but particularly this porcupine named Chewbacca:

My friend Matt had been here before and he reacquainted himself with a coyote named Alex:
