Turn back the clock to December 2004. It was my birthday and my girlfriend wanted to get me a puppy for my birthday.
After a full day of looking at purebred puppies I made the decision to wait and search rescues and shelters.
A little over a month later an Aussie Lab mix puppy was up for adoption at our local shelter.
We rushed to the shelter and quickly decided he was the pup for us.
Now it’s your turn. If you’re looking to adopt a dog and you live in Quebec then today’s blog post is for you.
Below we have an extensive list of shelters and rescues in Quebec.
My apologies as I don’t have a French version of this website.
Dogs For Adoption In Quebec
Below are all of the organizations in Quebec from which you can adopt a dog.
Please continue on to each individual organization’s website by clicking on their name to see dogs they have available for adoption or to learn more about the organization and their mission.
Adopting is a great way of bringing home a dog in need of a loving home.
Consider checking with the organizations in your area on a weekly basis if you’re looking for a specific breed before you decide to go out and buy a puppy from a breeder.
You know what they say – ‘Adopt Before You Shop!’
