Beasts of Fashion, the Montreal SPCA’s annual gala, is back!

UTOPIA: A world where everything’s possible

bdem-insta-2017-01Montreal, October 13th 2017 – The Montreal SPCA is pleased to invite you to its 4th annual Beasts of Fashion gala, which will be held on November 9, 2017 at Gare Dalhousie (Cirque Éloize). This fundraiser aims to raise $200,000 for the Montreal SPCA and its important work with animals. This work is funded almost entirely by generous donors for whom animal welfare is very important.

Featuring tasty vegan delicacies, special guests and fantastic surprises!

During this magical evening, our precocious pooches will strut their stuff in their usual grand style as we celebrate our love and compassion for all animals.

Animal-lover and Quebec television star Karl Hardy will host this prestigious evening. “I have had a very special relationship with animals ever since I was very young,” he says. “It is very important for me to lend my voice to those who cannot speak for themselves. I’m sure that I’ll forever remember this evening.”

The evening’s agenda will include a live auction hosted by the magnificent Lili Boisvert and Judith Lussier for trips to Puetro Viejo, Costa Rica and Eleuthera, Bahamas, as well as many wonderful items and experiences, such as tickets for the Montreal Canadiens and artwork by several talented artists, including Jean Labourdette and Mike Ritz.


  • When: Thursday, November 9, 2017 at 6 pm
  • Where: Gare Dalhousie, 417 Berri Street, Montreal, H2Y 3E1
  • Tickets: $135 available online at www.beastsoffashion.com/
