The Montreal SPCA and the city of Montreal helped many animals find new homes this weekend.

"Operation Adoption" took place from July 11th-13th.

The goal of the operation was to have 100 cats and 25 dogs adopted over the three day period.

SPCA spokeswoman Anita Kapuscinska told CJAD News the weekend was a great success, and even exceeded their objective.

"149 cats, 23 dogs, 3 rabbits, 3 birds, and 2 rats were adopted" Kapuscinska said.

"Operation Adoption" was a partnership between the Montreal SPCA and the City of Montreal.

The city was offering a $50 reduction on the adoption fee to each person who adopted a cat or kitten, or a starter kit valued at $25 to each person who adopted a dog at the Montreal SPCA.

The adoption event was put together to help the SPCA deal with the inflated number of animals dropped off over the annual moving season.

According to the SPCA, the number of animal abandonment can nearly triple, from about 600 to 1,600 animals per month.

Kapuscinska said the SPCA and city of Montreal will have another adoption clinic in September.
