Dumb Friends League - Quebec Street Shelter
Found the perfect dog for us at DFL. Adoption was quick and easy. They had taken care of her medical needs included a dental cleaning and extraction as well as some minor surgery. They also give a senior discount so we could aford the adoption. Highly reccommend this organization.

These people are a fraud. I reported an animal abuser to them, complete with photos of the sick son of a ***** torturing animals to death, and instead of doing anything to respond to the crime, they told me it was my responsibility to report him to the police (which I had already told them that I had already done) and told me they would be blocking my account. Do not trust these phonies, they do not care about animals at all!

I am not sure who to contact, but I have a skunk that lives behind my house. I have seen him in my back yard.The skunk has a plastic cup arround his neck. I do not know what I can do to get this animal help taking off the plastic arround his neck. Obviously he will die if it's not taken off. Please help me with this animal! ( It's hard to give a star to the entity, as I have never contacted them before.) Please let me know how to save this animal.

Tips & Advices
Most city and county shelters offer affordable spay/neuter services. SPCA and Humane Society shelters also are known for their low-cost spay/neuter programs.
Shelters typically offer spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchipping and some essential medical treatment (deworming, mange treatment) to animals being adopted from the shelter. For other veterinary services, you will need to find a vet.
No-kill and low-kill shelters will state it in their online profile and other official materials. They will usually explain what their process/policy is for looking after the animals in their care. These are also known as “limited admission” shelters because they are usually at full capacity most or all of the time. Also, they often work with rescue organizations or county Animal Services authorities to accommodate animals living in inhumane conditions, abandoned or injured animals.
Anyone can bring a lost animal to a county or municipal shelter. However, private shelters affiliated with rescues often will not accept animals, whether lost or surrendered by owners. Shelters with low-kill policies often have a limited admission capability.
Adopting an adult dog from a county or city shelter usually costs $75-$100. Young adult purebreds and puppies often have a higher adoption fee.  The fee to adopt a cat is usually about $50– sometimes with discounts if one new owner adopts two cats. The adoption fee usually covers the cost of spay/neuter surgery and essential vaccinations.
