We are looking for Foster Homes!

  • Being a foster parent to an animal in need of a little TLC can be a very rewarding experience. Some of the homeless animals that come into our Shelter have a hard time adjusting to life at the Shelter while they wait for their new homes. By placing them in a foster home, it allows us to give an interested adopter a better insight into the pet's likes and dislikes, good or bad habits, and its ability to get along with children and other pets. When the animal is adopted out there is a less chance it will be returned to the Shelter for some underlying problem that would go undectected at the Shelter. There are many ways someone can foster an animal. If you are interested in helping, please call the Shelter at 773-1806, or send us an email requesting an application form to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

SPCA Swift Current Adoption Prices Include:

Our Adoption Fee

Vaccinations (including rabies) & de-worming

Cost of Spay or Neuter

Cats:  $90.00 + $15.00 Micorchipping fee

Dogs:  $225.00 + $15.00 Microchipping fee

Please Note – There is an additional $90.00 (cats) and $100.00 (dogs) fee if the animal goes on a test drive before it is spayed or neutered.

That fee is fully refundable once the animal is altered.

Micro-chipping is now maditory, meaning every animal leaving the shelter must be micochipped. This will incure a $15 charge in addition to the usual adoption fees. The microchipping charge for non-shelter animals will remain $30.

Any other time, the fee for micro-chipping is $30.00.

 

Release of Impounded Animals:

All dogs impounded shall be confined for a period of 5 days and all cats impounded shall be confined for a period of 3 days (including the day the animal is brought into the Shelter), during which time the owner shall have the right to repossess the animal upon paying the Pound Keeper or City License Inspector the amounts set forth for impounding fees, boarding costs and licensing (if necessary).  If an animal is not claimed in those time frames, it becomes the property of the SPCA.

 

Surrendering an Animal:

There is a fee of $40.00 (per animal) to surrender an animal to the SPCA.  This fee helps to cover some of the expenses for feeding and caring for the animal during it’s stay at the Shelter.

Pet 1

Garfield:

Puuurrrr, hey there! You can probably guess why I am named Garfield, I am a handsome orange kitty with lots of personality. I am a little cheeky and I love to mess around, I will take any opportunity I can to play. When I have used all my energy playing I love to be held, I will purch myself on your hip so you can carry me around like a baby, I`m silly like this. I would absolutely love to be with a family that has children, I have so much fun running around with them, it`s nice to play with someone that has just as much energy as I do. I`m usually pretty quiet, I don`t have much to complain about. I really enjoy having another cat to play with, whenever I get a chance I will sneak out my cage to walk around to say hi to all the other shelter kitty`s. I hope we can meet soon, perhaps you could bring a toy that we could play with!

Pet 2

Thunder:

Hello there, My name is Thunder! I was brought into the shelter as a stray and as much as I love being here, I think I would be better suited as a indoor/outdoor kitty with a safe enclosed area, I would miss my freedom way too much! I am a very friendly man, I have a huge heart to love you with. My favourite place to be scratched is behind my ears and on the top on my head, this is important information you will need to remember! I am a forgiving cat ... I would be good with children, other cats and most probably dogs too. The way to my heart is definitely with food and treats! Your probably wondering why I would like to be an indoor/outdoor cat, well I`ll let you know ... I am 9 years old so I know how life works on the outside, I`m brave but cautious at the same time. I was not impressed when the shelter staff told me I have no choice but to use a litter box.. but I dealt with it and learned how to use it all over again, they are very understanding when I have mistakes and I am hoping for a family like this too! Please come and meet me soon!

Pet 3

Rockstar:

Thank you for stopping to read about me! I don`t usually like being the center of attention but I will tell you a little bit about myself ... I am a 6 year old Calico, I find it a little harder to adjust to shelter life, I just want to be in a warm home where I can stretch and relax! After having a cage to myself, I would like to keep in that way .... perhaps my own room with a "do not disturb" sign! If you treat me nicely I will do the same to you, but I am definitely the type of cat to stand up for myself. I am a neat and tidy cat with respect for boundaries, but every once in a while I will crawl onto your lap and remind you how much I love you!

Altered female, approx. age 6 years 2 months. Size: Large

Pet 4

Woods:

Hey, how are you doing today ? I am a year and a half old and I am a bit of a silly cat. I love to play games, fingers are very fun to play with but I promise I won`t bite or scratch, I just like to mess around. I am pretty talkative but I choose to tweedle rather then meow, this make me a little quieter then most. I just love to have fun and play but when I`m not, you`ll probably find me in a secret hiding spot and I`ll be under there faaaast asleep. I am goofy but good natured and kind hearted. I could spend many happy days cuddling on your lap. I have a very lush coat that is a steel grey and white and my bright green eyes stand out from the other side of the room! Please come and meet me, I have sooo many great stories to tell you!

Pet 5

Calla Lily:

Calla Lily is a beautiful white cat with some grey markings around her ears. She is a super affectionate lady who absolutely adores all the petting she can get. She has a very well-developed purr machine and can turn it on at the press of a button ... all you have to do is rub or scratch her nose. She would love to be in a family home where there are lots of kids & people who would pet her all day long. Do you have a space for her in your home? We sure hope so!

Calla Lily is the mother of our "Lily" litter.

Pet 7

Coco:

Collie/Mastiff

Hello! I am Coco! I am a sweet and loving dog. I love to go for a long walk or run everyday! I can be a tad bit shy when you first meet me, but don`t worry...once I get to know you I love to play and will greet you with my tail wagging! Once I`m done playing I enjoy some snuggles. I would love to go to a home with another dog to keep me company while you are out. I hope you`ll come down and visit me, I`m sure we will have lots of fun!

Altered female, approx. age 9 months. Size: Large

Pet 8

Ralph:

Pointer/Collie

WOOF, I`m glad I got your attention! My name is Ralph and I am a 3 year old Pointer x Collie. The shelter staff have not known me for long but quickly realized what a gentle giant I really am. I get super excited with every person I meet, I just cannot contain my joy! I am a little silly and I love to play games, I will get as low as I can and then bounce as high as I can! You`ll never see a dog jump as high as me. I get along well with woman and children but I am a little cautious of men, I am not mean or aggressive, just a little nervous until I get to know them. Even though I can be silly and playful, I am also very smart, after watching you for a while it doesn`t take me long to figure out how everything works! Hopefully you love long walks or runs because I defiantly do, I have lots of energy to burn! I really hope we can meet soon, thank you!
