Our teams are involved in their communities through different ways
Whether it’s by raising funds for foundations or shelters, or by providing healthcare on a volunteer basis, all our teams care deeply about animals’ health and well-being.
All our facilities are involved in fundraising efforts for this foundation. Whether it is by accepting spontaneous donations or by selling products from which a portion of the proceeds are donated to the foundation, you can contribute to the foundation at any time.
The Animo pour la vie Foundation helps low income families save the life of their pet. The foundation offers to pay a significant portion of the veterinary costs necessary for the pet’s survival in the event of an accident or serious illness.
Too often, people who don’t have the financial resources to continue the treatment towards the recovery of their pet have to resort to euthanasia. This is what the Animo pour la vie Foundation wishes to avoid.

Vaccination and sterilization in shelters and SPCA facilities
Several of our veterinarians participate each year in spay/neuter and vaccination initiatives for the many animals in their local shelters or SPCA facilities.
Join your facility's Facebook page or the Vet et Nous page to stay informed of our initiatives!

The Asista Foundation
The Asista Foundation, based at the Laval Veterinary Center, is a non-profit organization founded in 2011. The foundation provides service dogs for people who have been diagnosed with a mental health disorder. All their service dogs are given at no cost to the family in need. Asista’s mission is to help people integrate better in society by providing them with service dogs certified by their expert team.
The foundation regularly participates in projects around Québec. Their latest participation is with the Government of Canada, more specifically Veteran Affairs Canada (VAC) to provide service dogs to veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Moreover, Asista’s expert team represents Québec on the national level to define normative standards for service dogs in Canada.
