In accordance with our agreement with the borough of LaSalle, our mandate includes accepting and housing stray animals and owner surrendered pets.
Nous tentons par tous les moyens de placer en bons foyers d’adoption les animaux abandonnés qui nous sont confiés. Heureusement, pour un certain nombre d’entre eux, la vie ne s’arrête pas ici…
Comme le nombre d’abandons est beaucoup plus élevé que le nombre d’adoptions, nous travaillons en collaboration avec des organismes à but non lucratif tels Animatch, PetitsPaws, Animal Adoption Montréal ainsi que des membres de la CAACQ (Centres d’adoptions des animaux de compagnie du Québec).
Nous unissons nos efforts pour faire adopter plusieurs animaux. Les chats ont particulièrement besoin de notre aide, car ils sont plus nombreux que les chiens à se retrouver à la rue, livrés à eux-mêmes pour survivre.
Pros and Cons
Adopting a cat or dog is a long term commitment. Have you thought about… time you can devote to them, hair on the couch, possible allergies, vacations, budget for food, vaccines, fleas prevention treatments, etc.
If you wish to adopt an animal and are able to offer them a good home, we certainly have a little resident who needs you.
A successful adoption relies on choosing the right pet for you. Contact us for an appointment and we will be delighted to introduce you to our cats and dogs looking for a new home. We interact with them daily which enables us to advise you wisely. Each animal has its own history, temperament and personality. Just like us!
- The adoption fee covers the following expenses:
- veterinary examination;
- FIV / FeLV (AIDS / leukemia) test;
- first vaccination;
- flea prevention treatment;
- sterilization – a critical intervention to fight against pet overpopulation.
The Importance of an Adoption Contract
We have a mandate to accept and house abandoned animals collected in the LaSalle area.
Their well-being is very important to us and we want to insure we entrust each animal to caring and attentive people who will be concerned for their welfare throughout their lives.
We therefore require that an adoption agreement (contract) be signed as a commitment to ensure that each adopted animal remains in a good home, never to be abandoned again.
We are deeply committed to the health and well-being of not only our patients, but of those animals in shelters as well. This is why we are proud of our special relationship with the following organizations:
