Saskatoon SPCA

The Saskatoon SPCA aspires to improve quality of life for companion animals and strengthen human-animal bonds. We provide safe shelter, sustenance, medical treatment, and enrichment to thousands of abused, neglected, abandoned or lost animals in our community but most importantly we offer these pets a second chance at finding loving, happy homes.

Financial gifts

The Saskatoon SPCA receives more than 3,500 animals per year through their facility. We are fortunate and grateful to receive both in-kind and monetary gifts. The monetary gifts go to support the greatest needs of the animals in our care. Most often these gifts are used for medical supplies, vaccinations, medications and spay/neuter surgeries. Gifts can also be designated to our Second Chance fund to help cover the costs of surgeries that we normally would not have the funds for.

What we need:

Food Items
Office Supplies
Misc Items

Volunteer time:

We were recently voted “Best Place to Volunteer” by Planet S and have received an overwhelming influx of volunteer applications so we have paused our volunteer intake at the moment. We encourage people to check back periodically to see if we have reopened our applications. We are always accepting applications for foster homes especially if you can accommodate animals that have minor medical needs like cats that have “kitty colds”.

More about us

Community Impact

Saskatoon SPCA is an essential service that provides care to vulnerable animals in our community 24 hours a day 365 days a year. From the very moment an animal comes into our fold, their wellbeing is our priority. Our animal care attendants look after shelter animals as if they are their own ensuring they receive enrichment (playtime, affection and training) as well as sustenance (food, water and of course treats). We provide health assessments, vaccinations, spay/neuter surgeries and deworming treatment. Our adoption counsellors are dedicated to making the perfect match and transitioning animals from safe shelter to happy homes. We have a network of fosters and volunteers dedicated to the health and well being of animals in our community. Our lost and found service helps reunite owners with their lost pets. We facilitate veterinary and RVT student rotations. We offer education, training and programming to the community to help build stronger human-animal bonds.

Financial Breakdown

All donations are used to support the needs of animals in our care. Although we have a strong volunteer base we still need a staff of dedicated individuals to care for 100 animals a day. They ensure that every animal receives adequate sustenance, shelter and enrichment, they provide health assessments, vaccinations, deworming treatments. Everyday they clean kennels, wash hundreds of dishes and do laundry. It takes a financial wizard to oversee the volume of invoices, donations, reports and charitable compliance policies. Animals found on the streets rarely come to us in perfect shape. Sometimes medical intervention is necessary and more than 95% of animals we see are not spayed or neutered. We rely on veterinary partners in the community for surgery spots for necessary medical interventions as well as spay/neuter surgeries.

Our Philosophy

If you love animals as much as we do, you understand why we work so hard to provide the best life possible for the animals in our care, through safe shelter, sustenance, medical treatment, and enrichment to thousands of abused, neglected, abandoned or lost animals in our community but most importantly we offer these pets a second chance at finding loving, happy homes. We aspire to improve the quality of life for companion animals in our community through education, adoption, and the enforcement of animal welfare legislation. We like to say that we are at the centre of a happy community of people and their pets. It thrives because of the dedication of our people, the people we serve, and the animals we nurture together. Together with donors like you we can ensure that all animals who come through our doors receive the care they deserve and are matched with loving homes.
