Adoption Fees and Procedures

Proanima is accessible on appointment only. Contact us for more information : 450-655-2525 # or

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

  • See our available pets here.  
  • 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.
