Reduced-fee adoption – 5 days only!

Reduced Adoption fees from Wednesday, June 5 to Sunday, June 9

For five days only, starting WEDNESDAY, JUNE 5, we are reducing our adoption fees! 

The peak season of 2024 has barely started, yet an uptick in strays is already filling our cages and enclosures! Nearly a hundred cats, twenty dogs, and around forty rabbits and small animals, such as guinea pigs, mice, and rats, are waiting for a new home at the shelter. 

To help us free space at the shelter before the high season peak, you can adopt one of our lovely adult cats or dogs (dogs: 8 months and older / cats: 5 months and older) for only $50! It’s the perfect opportunity to add a cuddly, affectionate member to your family and provide a loving home to an animal who need a second chance.

Wednesday, June 5 to Sunday, June 9, 2024, from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends

Reducing or waiving adoption fees: a modern practice that's proven effective

This event aims to stir the interest of as many families as possible. It is also a way of giving families a helping hand, so they can invest the fee amount in the care of their new companion instead.  

Some people may worry that reducing or waiving adoption fees attracts families who do not have the financial means to care for an animal or that it diminishes the worth of animals. However, recent studies have shown that these beliefs are unfounded. We have been keeping an eye on what’s being done elsewhere. For instance, in the United States, events of this kind have been very successful. The shelters organizing these special days did not see a resulting increase in animal returns. Rather, they observed an increase in adoptions!   

It’s also important to know that the adoption process is the same: our counsellors talk with interested families to ensure they will meet the desired animal’s needs or, if necessary, they suggest an animal who is better suited to the family lifestyle.   

Many animals are awaiting their second chance in life at the Montreal SPCA. Our team looks forward to welcoming these companions’ future families, so see you there!
