The Montreal SPCA collaborates with a large network of Rescue Organizations, Sanctuaries, and other shelters. The goal is to partner with other organizations, transferring animals out due to overpopulation and special needs, and by transferring animals in with the vision of assisting other shelters with over-populations when possible, reducing the risk to pets in shelter. **Please note that this service does not apply to citizens wishing to abandon their animals.**
Transfer IN information
Any shelter wishing to partner with the Montreal SPCA must fill out a transfer request form in its entirety, and attach a copy of the animal’s medical file, and behavior evaluation, along with a photo (jpeg) of the animal. All animals transferred from other shelters must be vaccinated before arrival, and be transported with a vaccination certificate and medical exam by a licensed Vet, unless agreed upon in writing by an authorized employee of the Montreal SPCA.
The Montreal SPCA reserves the right to accept or decline any transfer. Please note that the form needs to be filled out for each animal coming in, with the required documents attached. Once the questionnaire filled, you can send via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
