Montreal, September 13th, 2018 – This weekend Montreal will be hit with extreme heat, on the medical advice of our chief veterinarian the Montreal SPCA has decided to cancel its annual Snout and About event, to ensure everyone’s well-being and safety.
Dogs have a very limited ability to sweat and are therefore more susceptible to heatstroke. They depend on us to keep them safe.
Thank you for your understanding and for your support towards Montreal SPCA’s animals. We wish you a pleasant weekend,
– 30 –
