These animals were adopted at the Montreal SPCA

BEFORE adopting, it is important to:

  • Assess the costs of having a pet: food, visits to the veterinarian, litter, care products, and so on. You can find all the important information on how to care for your rabbit on the House Rabbit Society website:
  • Know your animal’s life expectancy and whether you have the time and energy to take care of a pet day after day.
  • Anticipate that your new pet will need time to adapt to his or her new surroundings and understand that he could cause damages during this period.


  • Monday to Friday: 12:00 pm to 7:00 pm* (possible to visit the animals until 8:00 pm)
    * Hours may change during holidays or special events.
