SPCA Offering FREE Adoptions this Weekend

Montreal’s SPCA is offering free adoptions this weekend only in an effort to mitigate the yearly summer influx of abandoned pets. Each summer, the number of animals taken in by the SPCA increases dramatically, due in large part to people moving into homes that are not pet-friendly.

In Quebec, landlords have the right to ban pets from their property. Each year, this causes many new tenants to have to abandon their pets when moving into a new home. This is a huge problem for the SPCA, which struggles each year to find homes for all of their pets. The animals are well cared-for at the SPCA, but of course, the best solution for everyone would be to find permanent homes for all of them.

That’s why the SPCA is waiving adoption fees for certain animals, until August 18 (this Sunday). These fees usually range between $75 and $195. But until this Sunday only, animals with special needs – considered humanitarian adoptions – will be completely free.

These animals, which have special medical or behavioural issues, are marked with an “H” on the SPCA’s website. They make great pets too – but may require a little extra day-to-day work.

There are currently 23 cats, 9 dogs and a large number of other smaller animals up for adoption on the SPCA’s website. Click here to see the full list!
