Among its numerous undertakings, the SPCA operates an emergency shelter, newly known as the “Annexe”, just a block from our premises on Jean-Talon. Founded in 2008 by staff members at the SPCA, this unique program was originally set up to house the 400 dogs that were seized during two puppy mill capture arrests 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 support to large groups of animals brought in from puppy mills seizures and extreme hoarding situations, along with animals who have special needs (behavioral or medical), animals awaiting transfer to rescue or other shelters, and animals waiting for adoption when we no longer have space at the main SPCA shelter. The Annexe’s mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and find loving homes for these special needs or hard to place animals. The funds raised go toward the handling, rehabilitation, socialization, grooming, training, placing and long-term follow-up.
The Annexe has now a staff of 6 employees and 75 volunteers. To date, over 2,000 animals have been rescued thanks to this program.
The Annexe posts the pets who are available for adoption on their Faceboook page: Montreal SPCA Emergency Shelter
