Learn about the Montreal SPCA’s activities and follow our adventures as we help animals in distress.

There are many ways to help out!

If you support the Montreal SPCA’s mission and would like to make a difference in animals’ lives, here are some things you can do.


By donating to the Montreal SPCA, you can help alleviate the plight of animals and enable us to continue our mission.


By adopting an animal from a shelter rather than buying one from a breeder or a pet store, you can say no to intensive animal breeding (such as “puppy mills”) and give an animal in need a forever home.


By participating in the shelter’s activities as a volunteer or fostering an animal at your home, you can contribute greatly to the welfare of the animals.


Every donation allows us to rescue and care for more abandoned or abused animals. Thank you for your generosity.
