You can check the list of adoptable animals at Montreal’s SPCA on the Montreal Petfinder website
BEFORE adopting, it is important to:
-Assess the costs of having a pet: food, visits to the veterinarian, litter, care products, and so on.
-Know your animal’s life expectancy and whether you have the time and energy to take care of a pet day after day.
-Anticipate that your new pet will need time to adapt to his or her new surroundings and understand that he could cause damages during this period.
Monday to Friday: 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Saturday and Sunday: 11:00 am to 5:00 pm
Every day of the week, our adoption counselors are pleased to advise you and help you find the perfect companion for you. They will also explain all that is involved when taking on the commitment and responsibilities of bringing home a pet. The SPCA’s boutique also sells the accessories you will need for a good start with your new companion.
