What a wonderful initiative to transport dogs to new homes! CaacQ’s first flight passenger leaves this Saturday! Read on:
The French Connection has wings!
Montréal, March 1, 2013: Since 2008 the Companion Animal Adoption Centres of Quebec (caacQ) has transferred homeless abandoned dogs to our partners in Toronto. In 2012 more than 290 dogs have been sent by ground transport.
The absence of low cost spays and neuters clinics (www.sterilisation.ca) in Quebec and the high number of abandoned adoptable dogs creates an overflow of Quebec canines.
The caacQ always seeking innovative and ethical solutions is collaborating with Pilots N Paws Canada (www.pilotsnpawscanada.com) to transfers by plane these wonderful dogs.
Our first flight transfer will take place this Saturday with Lexus a 2 year old black lab mix – our first passenger.
We would like to thank our partner the Toronto Humane Society (THS) (www.torontohumanesociety.com) who since 2011 has kindly offered to find new homes for these homeless Quebec dogs.
- Please note weather conditions may alter the flight schedule.
