The Aristopaws

The Aristopaws is the only non-profit organization in Quebec specializing in the rescue of abandoned or stray animals that are also sick.



We handle cases that other shelters can’t take due to lack of funds. However, we have limited spaces available to ensure we can provide all the necessary care for the animals in our care.

We could not exist if we didn’t have the support of so many people. Some people help us by being a foster family and, obviously, others by being very generous with our protégés. As you can see with our different fundraisers,
the amounts needed to heal our animals can be staggering. Donations are the reason we continue to exist.

All amounts received help us care for our furry friends, whether for medical treatment or basic needs such as food. All types of donations can help us, whether monetary or physical. Contact us for more information on donations!


Become a foster family

Our organization works exclusively with foster families. We have no fixed premises for our animals because our goal is to offer them the most normal environment possible. If you’d like to welcome an animal in your home, but you can’t do it on a permanent basis, being a foster family might be the perfect solution for you!

You’re unable to care for your pet anymore? There’s a stray cat or dog in your neighbourhood that worries you?
You are a veterinarian and have a special case? Visit our Care page to know if we can take in your animal. If your pet doesn’t fit in the criteria or if we are at full capacity, please contact us so we can refer you to one of our associated shelters.
