There’s no such thing as too much kindness, for animals in distress

Twice as spacious and twice as comfortable, the new shelter at the Eastern Townships SPA provide a gentler environment than ever for the lost, injured, and abandoned animals it takes in. Greener and more accessible than before, it forms the heart of the community and enables us to work together to take better care of our animals. Operation Gentle Sheltering: Let’s pull together as Eastern Townshippers to reduce the animals’ stress, improve their quality of life, encourage their adoption, and support the families who take them into their homes.

“If you’d seen me when I arrived at the Eastern Townships SPA... 

... you wouldn’t have recognized me! But then, I was given such great care and more attention than I’d had in my whole life and, thanks to the kindness of the humans I met here, I was able to let my true personality shine through for the first time.”

“It’s a true honour for me to act as spokesperson for the Eastern Townships SPA’s Operation Gentle Sheltering campaign. 

I’m proud to lend my voice to this exemplary, responsible organization whose team is dedicated to continually improving the services it provides and to bettering the lives of animals in need. Let’s offer the animals a more comfortable environment by building a shelter that reflects all the great work the  Eastern Townships SPA does in our community.”
