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 info@spcaswiftcurrent.com

 

To make a donation to the Swift Current SPCA visit them at 2101 Knight Crescent or at the SPCA Bookstore. You may choose to mail your donation to Swift Current SPCA at PO Box 1163, S9H 3X3.

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

Amber:

Meow! My name is Amber! I came into the shelter with my sister and 3 brothers! I am a curious girl that likes to check things out! I also like to play with my roommates! I also enjoy nap time! I like to nap on the nice soft bed the staff give us, but if it is already full I`ll nap anywhere! I also really enjoy all the cuddles the staff give me and I can`t seem to get enough of them! When people stop by to see us, I usually try to meet them at my door! I am definitely not shy! I love running around and finding new things I can make my toys! I am told often that I am adorable!

Pet 2

Sabrina:

Hi! I am Sabrina! I came to the shelter with my mom and 3 siblings! I enjoy the company of my siblings but will stand in the food dish to make sure I get a little more food! I am silly that way! I enjoy playing and climbing with my roommates! I like to snuggle with people to though! I am not shy at all! I like to nap on the nice beds the staff give us! When I nap I usually curl up in a ball or I stretch out! I get told lots that I am very cute! I would be ok in a home without any cats but I do enjoy the company of them! I like to keep my nice white fur clean after playing and hardly ever see my fur dirty!

Unaltered female, approx. age 15 weeks.

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

Drew:

Meow! My name is Drew! I came to the shelter with my 2 sisters and 3 brothers! I love playing with everybody and also all the toys the staff give us! I also enjoy napping on our big bed! I`m still young and enjoying figuring things out! Could my new home paws-ibly be with you??

Unaltered male, approx. age 13 weeks.

Pet 5

Jerry Lee:

Hello! My name is Jerry Lee! I am a playful kitty that loves to play with people and my siblings! I also enjoy my food! I like taking my naps in a nice big bed and sometimes like to snuggle up to one of my siblings during nap time!

I am the fearless one out of my litter! I am not scared of heights or new people! I am one of the first ones to explore new places! I like to run and play with my brothers! When my brothers don`t want to play I enjoy all kinds of toys the staff give us! Like the singer I am named after I believe I am a star and am high energy when I`m not napping!

I`m still pretty young though I`d like to think I`m a big cat! I hope you`ll stop to come and play with me on July 21, 2015 since that is when I can meet new people! The staff are still figuring me out so please check back to see what they find out!

Unaltered male, approx. age 10 weeks. Size: Small

Jill:

Hi! I am Jill! I came to the shelter with my mom and my siblings! The shelter staff and I have worked on how shy I was and am no longer shy! You`ll figure out once I know you that I am unique! I enjoy spending my days with my roommates to keep me company and busy! I am more relaxed then they are but I also have a playful side! People tell me I`m pretty cute and I think so too! I like to nap and will fall asleep anywhere I find comfy!

I can go to a home any day but I also enjoy all the visitors I can get! I hope you can stop by to see me and so we can be friends!

Pet 8

Phoenix:

Border Collie

Hey there, my name is Phoenix. I love to go on walks, especially with adults or older children as younger children make me a little nervous, eat treats, play with my toys and of course play with other dogs. I haven`t been around many cats but I don`t seem to have any problems with them, as long as they want to be my friend too. Sometimes I like to think I am a little dog, I will climb up on your lap and try to curl myself up, then I remember how big I really am! I`m a sweet boy with a heart of gold. When I`m not playing with the other dogs I like to relax outside in the nice warm sun. I could spend hours outside, I just love the fresh air! Come down to the shelter any day and we can go for a walk together, I would love to find more about you!

Altered male, approx. age 1 year 11 months. Size: Medium
