Montreal, June 28th, 2018 – The Montreal SPCA is pleased to announce the 8th edition of the largest dog walk in Montreal to raise funds for our organization. The event will be held at the Mount Royal Park (Smith House) on Sunday, September 16th, 2018. Participants of the annual Snout & About event will spend a festive day with fellow dog‑lovers all while supporting our efforts to end animal cruelty and injustice.

The walk will give members of the public the chance to enjoy a family activity with their loyal canine companion and at the same time raise funds to help the Montreal SPCA continue its mission: protecting and representing the interests of animals, as it has been doing for nearly 150 years.

  • When: Sunday, September 16th, 2018 at 10 am (rain or shine)
  • Where: Mount Royal Park, near Smith House

“It is thanks to the public’s support that we are able to investigate thousands of cruelty cases, defend the interests of all animals, and sterilize and rehome thousands of animals every year. We invite fellow animal-lovers to register and join us at the walk to help the Montreal SPCA pursue its mission, and also to enjoy a fun-filled day for the entire family”, says Anita Kapuscinska, Communications Director at the Montreal SPCA.

Let’s walk to end animal cruelty

Hosted by Karl Hardy, animal-lover and cultural columnist, the event will feature many activities, including music, craft sales, a raffle, a bouncy castle and prizes. There will be a festive atmosphere and guaranteed fun for the entire family!

For only $25, the Montreal SPCA (Dr. Esther Côté) is offering a microchipping service for dogs. The microchip is an electronic device that provides a safe way to quickly help find your pet in case of loss or theft.
