VAUDREUIL-DORION –  A Pierrefonds family is making a point to give back this holiday season.

Hans and Kristy want to teach their kids the real meaning of Christmas so the family is planning random acts of kindness throughout the month.

Last week, the family left candy canes and a kind note on the windshields of cars parked at a Montreal hospital.

This week, the family visited a small no-kill SPCA animal shelter in Vaudreuil-Dorion, bringing large bags of food, treats and blankets for the animals.

As a reward for their good deed, the kids were allowed to go play with the cats.

“We left with the promise to return to play and love the cats that don’t have families yet to love them,” said Kristy Westlake.
