The SPCA's Shaggy Dog Strut

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - May 25, 2006) - Moving day is just around the corner. With all the trials and tribulations of moving, Montreal's pets often fall between the cracks.

Statistics show that out of the 500,000 domestic animals abandoned in Quebec every year, nearly half are given-up around moving day. Last year, the Canadian SPCA had to rent trailers to accommodate the three - four hundred animals abandoned each week the month leading-up to Moving Day weekend. While many pets are surrendered to shelters, hundreds more are left in empty apartments, abandoned in local parks or even just put out on the street, left to fend for themselves.

If someone is thinking of getting a pet, now is the time. There are thousands of wonderful animals that have been abandoned, who are waiting to be adopted by a loving and responsible home. To promote that "Adoption is the Best Option", and to showcase the wonderful animals available for adoption, the Canadian SPCA is hosting a Dog Adoption Clinic between noon - 2 pm at their second annual dog walk-a-thon, The Royal Canin Shaggy Dog Strut, on Sunday May 28th at Parc Lafontaine.

The walk-a-thon is an opportunity to give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves! Join hundreds of Quebecers who want to see all animals protected, respected and cared-for. Walk in the Royal Canin Shaggy Dog Strut, and help the SPCA protect the many neglected, abused and abandoned animals.
