The rescue

The Aristopaws is a non-profit organization created in 2014 by a team passionated by pets.


We specialize in the care of abandoned or wandering pets who are sick or injured. These animals need specialized health care and we treat them before our partners find them a new adoptive family.


These animals come from abandonments, pounds or seizures for animal cruelty or abuse. When we take a pet in charge, we start by finding a foster family. Thus, we do not have any premises because we want our animals to have a life as normal as possible despite their condition. This allows us to make good behavioral assessments since they live in a family context.


We take care of all kinds of medical conditions and some of our animals require specialized health care. We have several partner clinics allowing us not to shrink from veterinary fees that can be expensive. However, we prioritize the quality of life and the long-term well-being of the animal. We are therefore against therapeutic relentlessness.

Once our animals are back on their paws, we transfer them to partner shelters who will look after them to find a new family for life. According to their behavior, the candidates are sorted in order to find the perfect family for their needs.



The Aristopaws is the only rescue in Quebec specializing in the care of sick or injured abandoned animals. Our team is made of animal health professionals and animal enthusiasts. If you would like to join our volunteer team, send us your resume to [email protected]
