ADOPTION DAY FOR CATS – November 7, 2013

Montreal , November 4, 2013 – The Montreal SPCA is organizing Adoption Day for Cats, an adoption clinic featuring our feline friends, to be held on November 7, 2013 from 10:00am to 10:00pm at the two Montreal SPCA shelters. We are still receiving a particularly high number of abandoned or stray cats and we need your help to find them a forever loving home.

As the main purpose of this day is to facilitate the adoption of at least 50 cats, we will offer every person who adopts a cat on Thursday, November 7, 2013 a gift* worth $75 (including litter box, scratching post, toy, Litter Locker and a Royal Canin discount coupon). Also, professional photographers will be available free of charge to take pictures of adopters with their new feline friend (file photos will be provided on a CD).

In the above photo, meet Alsatia, an adorable 2-year-old female cat who is already sterilized and available for adoption at the SPCA Annexe.

We also want to promote the importance of adopting a pet from a shelter rather than buying one from a pet store or online. Adopting gives a second chance and a home to a healthy animal, while saving lives.

On November 7, Adoption Day for Cats welcomes you between 10:00am and 10:00pm at:

  • Montreal SPCA – 5215 Jean- Talon West, Montreal
  • SPCA Annexe – 7314 Mountain Sights, Montreal (one corner south of the SPCA)

Our adoption counsellors will be happy to help you find the right companion.
Adopt and help save lives!


  • Kitten (up to 5 months): $175
  • Cat (5 months and more): $125

These fees include sterilization (spaying or neutering), which is mandatory for all adopted cats, the first set of vaccinations, deworming treatment, a microchip and a 30-day health guarantee.

* Gifts are available while supplies last.
