Municipal animal service centre

To offer stray animals a safer, more pleasant living environment for stray animals and to keep more of these animals alive, the city is building a municipal animal services centre that will be accessible to all Montrealers.

The centre will be located in an area where the need for it services is greatest, where the number of pets (directly proportional to the number of households) is the highest.

The centre will be located on Pie-IX, between 42e Rue and 47e Rue. It will house stray animals, look for their guardians, provide veterinary care, conduct awareness activities and help enforce harmonized regulations. Unclaimed animals will be put up for adoption after being examined, cared for, vaccinated, spayed/neutered and microchipped.

The centre will be built with capacity for 14,000 cats and dogs as well as other species.

The municipal animal services centre will cost $23 million for an estimated area of 40,000 square feet (3,720 m2). The budget includes construction costs, equipment and professional services.

Construction will begin in spring 2017 and the centre will be fully functional in 2018.

Animal shelters

Animal shelters take in stray or abandoned animals in Montréal’s boroughs. You should contact them if you lose your pet. Some shelters put unclaimed pets up for adoption.
