Notre histoire

Our story begins in 1982, when a group of committed citizens decided to roll up their sleeves and take charge of the animal situation in the Outaouais region. At the time, there were no animal shelters in the region, so those who were abandoned or unwanted were condemned to certain death!

Our founders got organized and succeeded in setting up an organization that would come to the rescue of neighborhood dogs, cats and other furries. We officially obtained our non-profit status on May 5, 1984!

Since our foundation, we have welcomed and helped over 125,000 animals. Every day, our employees devote their energies to caring for our little guests and finding them the best possible families.

Our patrol and investigation team has decades of expertise, during which time we have followed up on over 16,000 complaints. We leave no stone unturned and support every citizen to the best of our ability, ensuring that every animal receives the care it needs in a loving environment.

What drives us is to contribute every day to the improvement of animal welfare in the Outaouais region. We firmly believe that every furry deserves to find a family for life, and to be able to thrive in an environment that meets its needs!

Would you like to join us so that cats, dogs and everyone else can live a serene, happy and joy-filled life?
