Animal negligence and or cruelty complaints

Please note that for an indefinite period, any complaint of animal negligence or cruelty must be directed to the Ministère de l'Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l'Alimentation du Québec (MAPAQ) at 1-844-animals.

Due to administrative delays on the part of MAPAQ, the inspection cards allowing SPCA inspectors in all the Province of Quebec to apply the provincial law have expired. We are waiting for the next renewal protocol. For the moment, it is impossible for us to intervene before the MAPAQ officially renews the contracts. It is their inspectors who have to take care of the complaints coming in.

However, the following municipalities have "animal control" type contracts with our organization and residents can call 819-205-2908 to report to us confidentially, cases of negligence or animal cruelty that will be dealt with under the provisions of their municipal by-law:

• All municipalities in the MRC des Collines except Notre-Dame de la Salette

• All municipalities in the Pontiac MRC

Our team works hard to save a greater number of animals every year and we are proud to have adopted out 300 more cats than the year before.

In average it's 8 animals per day, 58 animals every week and 252 every month for a whole year. All neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.



We would like to formaly apologize to local pet owners regarding the treatment of the 2018 municipal license purchases.

We have experienced difficulties with our telephone lines and have accumulated a lot of delay in processing and sending licenses. We are trying to catch up. We ask the population to remain patient, you will soon receive your license by mail for those who paid online or by check.

We had a lot of animals entering the shelter in the fall and early winter, whereas usually it is calmer. Our priority was directed towards them, which does not justify our failure to provide a suitable service.

Processing 40,000 licenses in a matter of weeks is a big challenge for any company or organization.

For next year, we will put in place the staff and structure to succeed. Know that respecting the municipal by-laws and purchasing your municipal licenses allow more than 7000 animals annually to be cared for with compassion and humanity by our fantastic health team.
