Sharing stories about the great things businesses do to support pets and pet families in their communities. #AWIEB

The Gatineau SPCA serves more than 300,000 people in over 25 municipalities of the Outaouais region (SPCAO). Through their work with in-house adoptions, external adoption partners and special event adoptions they have been able to deeply impact the welfare of animals in the Outaouais region. Beyond their local work they are also part of a 15 affiliate member group which works to accommodate animals around the province, giving them the best chance for finding homes. This is illustrated by their 92% success rate. The SPCAO believes in working with others to develop solutions facing Quebec’s pet population. They collaborate with other agencies in an effort to improve the wellbeing of pets on a larger scale. This is illustrated by their tireless efforts on the working group for the improvement of the health and safety of animals with QC Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Food as well as their presence on the Boards of the Quebec Association of SPA-SPCA and the BEA Foundation (Animal Well Being).
