Moving Day in Montreal is always a busy time for local shelters. Sadly, many former pets wind up being dumped at shelters or abandoned in apartments when their owners move. To many people, animals are a disposable commodity . In fact, it's been estimated that a great deal of Montrealers keep their pets for an average of 2 years before deciding they aren't worth the time or effort.
Cats are a particular problem here. And the Montreal SPCA is overflowing with them. In an effort to promote the adoption of older cats they are having a special adoption weekend “Feline Frenzy-2010”, this coming July 10th-11th. They will even be absorbing part of the adoption fees for cats over the age of one.
Here are the details:
WHAT: SPCA Feline Frenzy Adoption Day
WHEN: Saturday July 10th, Sunday July 11th, 11am - 5pm
WHERE: Montreal SPCA: 5215 Rue Jean Talon Ouest
Because of the influx of animals, temporary foster homes are also greatly appreciated. For more, contact the Foster Family Program at 514-735-2711 ext. 2237.
