The SPCA of Western Quebec is a no-kill animal
shelter located at 1658 chemin Pink, in the Aylmer sector of the
city of Gatineau. We accept animals which can no longer be
kept by their owner. Should you have an animal that you are no
longer able to keep and you must rehome, please contact our shelter
at (819) 770-7722 to discuss your situation. In addition, we
work with many rescues and shelters, transferring dogs/cats to our
SPCA as space permits.
All of our animals receive an examination by our
veterinarian before entering the quarantine period of their stay
with us. While visiting with the vet, vaccinations are brought
up to date (if necessary), and any ailments found upon exam are
prescribed the necessary treatment(s).
Prior to the end of their quarantine, our animals
are sent to be spayed and neutered, after which time they can be
made available for adoption. Those puppies and kittens who are
too young for this surgery are adopted with a valid spay/neuter
voucher as part of the adoption contract.
Additionally, all dogs receive microchips
implanted before their departure to their adoptive homes (for cats,
this can be provided for a small fee). In the case of both
dogs and cats, initial deworming and flea treatment is also provided
during their stay in the shelter.
The SPCA of Western Quebec receives no
public/government funding and relies solely on adoption fees and
donations to cover all costs incurred in operating the shelter, and
providing all of the necessities to our animals. As well, some
animals may require a significantly expensive surgery or treatment
in order to prepare him or her for adoption, typically due to a
pre-existing condition, injury, etc. at the time the animal was
admitted to the shelter.
Our thanks go out to our adopters and
donors, who contribute so much with their love for our animals, and
funds to assist in our mission to find homes for all of our
residents. Appreciation is extended as well to our devoted
volunteers, for taking a part of their day and spending it with a
shelter cat or dog, just to let them know they're loved.
If you would like to support the SPCA of Western
Quebec, feel free to do so in whichever capacity you would prefer -
an adopter, a dog walker or cat cuddler, a donor - and we would
welcome your assistance. For any additional information,
please feel free to contact us by phone at (819) 770-7722 or e-mail
