Our Mission

Inspire and educate humans about animal welfare and respect, one person, one community and one city at a time. Founded and spearheaded by Geneviève Desrochers, Engineer, Ambassador and President of the Board of Directors since its creation, Proanima is a non-profit organization (NPO) created in 2012 to meet the pressing need for ethical and responsible pet management solutions.

In addition to providing temporary housing for the animals in our care, the building has clinical rooms where we provide medical care and sterilization services as well as indoor and outdoor spaces where the public can take part in training and education activities.

In addition to its state-of-the-art pet management facilities, Proanima boasts a multidisciplinary team that combines veterinary, administrative and behavioural expertise. The quality of our facilities, the complementarity of our staff’s expertise and our shared love of animals make Proanima a recognized leader in pet care.

Here are the steps to adopt an animal (online and on appointment):

Fill in the form categorized by species : cat form / exotic form / dog form
We will then contact you to review the animal’s file with you.
If a match is possible, a meeting between you, the foster family (and the animal) and an adoption worker will be organized.
If the meeting is successful, the documents will be signed and the fees paid virtually or on place (the rates and programs are the same as usual).
Once your form has been received, we will contact you to continue the adoption procedures with you. Please note that requests are processed in the order in which the forms were received. IMPORTANT: Please request one or more of the animals already posted on our website. We have no waiting list for upcoming animals.

Please note that our adoption assessment process remains the same; requests will be processed on a first come, first served basis.
