About Canadian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals:
Founded in 1869, the Canadian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Montreal SPCA) is Canada's first animal protection charity and the largest humane society in Quebec. Montreal SPCA is dedicated to protecting animals against negligence, abuse, and exploitation; representing their interests and ensuring their well-being; and raising public awareness. Montreal SPCA’s services include: running a shelter for lost and abandoned animals, facilitating animal fostering and adoption, educating the public about wildlife and pet sterilization, and responding to animal cruelty cases. In addition to its main shelter, Montreal SPCA also runs the Annex, an emergency shelter for special needs animals and large groups of animals from puppy mill seizures and extreme hoarding situations.
Montreal SPCA receives and cares for over 15,000 pets each year and sterilizes 5,000 animals each year. In addition, it provides emergency medical care to injured pets. Since the opening of the Annex in 2008, 2,500 animals have been rescued through the program. Montreal SPCA is currently campaigning for cage free chickens used in the egg industry and supporting Humane Society International Canada's certification of egg labeling. Montreal SPCA is rallying its community to oppose municipal proposed laws banning certain aggressive dog breeds - laws that it reports are ineffective in reducing dog bites. Montreal SPCA effectively pushed for the ban of Montreal carriage horses that Montreal council overturned. Montreal SPCA finds carriage horses suffer extreme temperature conditions, pollution and walking on hard surfaces.
