Adopt Tommy
Tommy is the perfect family dog. He's a year old mix breed who's great with cats and dogs.
Tommy was dropped off at the SPCA Montérégie for no fault of his own and he's now  in foster care. If you’d like to adopt this adorable dog, contact the Foster Home Coordinator, Debra at: (514) 969-1767. If you’d like to find out about other dogs or cats at the shelter, call: (450) 460-3075.

Creating furry friendships
There are countless cats in the streets with no place to call home, but a feline rescue group called Cause 4 Paws is trying to help.
“We want to create liasions between senior citizens that are experiencing isolation and homeless cats, ” said Ursula Lord, the group’s founder. “All of the cats are in excellent health and the veterinary record is included.”
All the cats have been sterilized, vaccinated and treated for any parasites.
“We are against de-clawing cats but we usually have some if that is requested,” Lord said. The fee is $135, refundable if the arrangement doesn’t work out and an exchange isn’t possible. Adoption days are June 16 & 30, 12 - 4pm at Multi Menu, 9760 Gouin W. Info: (514) 684-4810.

Flora and fauna hotline
Do you have problems with creepy-crawlies or furry rascals in your backyard? Are our fine-feathered “friends” not as friendly as you thought? Do you want to learn how to attract butterflies and birds to your house. Are you looking for advice on organic gardening?
U.N.I.S., Montreal’s flora and fauna hotline, can help. The Urban Nature Information Service aims to help urban communities co-exist with nature. Info: (514) 398-7822. Email: unis.macdonald@mcgill.ca.
