Among its numerous undertakings, the Montreal SPCA operates a shelter, known as the “Annexe”, just a block from our premises on Jean-Talon. Started in 2008, this unique program was originally set up to house the 400 dogs that were seized during two puppy mill seizures that year. It was then predominantly used for housing animals seized during cruelty investigations.
The Annexe has now developed into a full-time program providing help to animals who have special needs (behavioral or medical), animals awaiting transfer to other shelters or rescue groups, and to groups of animals brought in from puppy mill seizures and extreme hoarding situations. The Annexe’s mission is to rescue, to improve the wellbeing of the animal and his behavior, and to find loving homes for these special needs or difficult to place animals. The funds raised go towards the handling, care, socialization, grooming, placement and long-term follow-up.
The Annexe includes a staff of 7 employees and nearly 50 volunteers. To this date, thousands of animals have been placed thanks to this program.
The Annexe posts the pets who are available for adoption on their Faceboook page: L’Annexe de la SPCA de Montréal
