Canadian ResQpartner of the Month: Services Animaliers de la Rive-Sud

We are proud to name Services Animaliers de la Rive-Sud as our Canadian ResQpartner of the Month! With this recognition, Services Animaliers de la Rive-Sud will be the beneficiary of the March NexGard™ check-in promotion and will receive doses of NexGard™ flea and tick control for the animals at the shelter.

Services Animaliers de la Rive-Sud was established in 2012 and serves the cities of Longueuil, Boucherville and Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville in Quebec. The mission of the organization is to provide healthcare and temporary shelter to pets who are lost, abandoned, injured, stray, or in distress. We are proud to support Services Animaliers de la Rive-Sud and name them our Canadian Shelter of the Month – and the beneficiary of the Merial veterinary check-in promotion throughout the month of March.


Services Animaliers de la Rive-Sud’s dedication to the animals is clear – and the story of Poulette shows us that their commitment has no boundaries.

Poulette arrived at the shelter on January 10th, 2015 after being abandoned in an apartment by her previous owner. She was brought to Services Animaliers de la Rive-Sud by a good samaritan who knew that the shelter would take excellent care of her.

Upon her arrival at Services Animaliers de la Rive-Sud the team knew something was up. She had severe discomfort in her back left foot. X-rays were performed and it was revealed that she had a severely fractured femur. After discussion with specialists, it was decided that her back leg would need to be amputated.

One day after surgery she was already feeling MUCH better. In fact, on January 31st, Poulette was ready to meet her new mom! They immediately fell in love and – one year later – Poulette is running freely and living a great life thanks to the wonderful work of Services Animaliers de la Rive-Sud. 

She’s one happy chick if we do say so ourselves!


The story of Poulette is so inspiring and brings warmth to our hearts! For all the amazing work Services Animaliers de la Rive-Sud does, and continues to do, we are proud to announce them as our Canadian ResQpartner of the month.With this recognition, Services Animaliers de la Rive-Sud  will be the beneficiary of this month’s NexGard™ check-in promotion. The dates of the promotion are March 1st – March 31st, 2016. During the course of this promotion, for every person that uses the ResQwalk app to “check-in” to a Canadian veterinary clinic, Merial will provide one dose of NexGard™ flea and tick control (up to a maximum of 50 doses during the promotional timeframe) to Services Animaliers de la Rive-Sud .
