Animal Shelters in Picardy and Nord-Pas-de-Calais

Who to call for animal information, animal rights organisations and other associations for the protection of cats, dogs and other pet animals...

To adopt an animal from a shelter (refuge) take proof of identity (passport or Titre de Séjour) and proof of address (a recent utility bill such as electricity or telephone bill). All shelters charge an adoption fee and most allow a one-month trial period during which you may return the animal and be refunded if the rehoming has not worked out.

English is not spoken at most of these animal shelters.

The Sauver, Protéger, Aimer (SPA) website (in French) provides information on SPA shelters throughout Nord Pas-de-Calais and Picardy.
