Information Bulletin

 

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

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

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!

Pet 6

Marilyn:

Hello there! My name is Marilyn! I think am just as pretty as the lady I was named after...Marilyn Monroe! I`m not the most playful out of my siblings but I do enjoy playing with them and the staff at the Shelter! I enjoy all kinds of toys but really enjoy the toy mice and balls! I`m not shy so I like to make friends with everybody!

I am not the first to explore but will definitely join in if my sisters go! I will explore on my own just a little more cautiously! I love to be with people and my sisters! I am a sweet girl who also likes to be pet and cuddled! I prefer to nap on the big fluffy bed the staff give us..one that is fit for a movie star! I would love to sleep on a big bed or comfy couch! I will be ready to meet new people..and hopefully go home on July 21, 2015! Will you stop by and see me? The shelter staff are still getting to know me so please check back for more information about me!

Pet 7

Sinatra:

Hello! My name is Sinatra and I don`t look anything like my siblings! I`m more mellow then some of the others but do like to play! I like to look handsome and get my face washed by the staff! I enjoy playing with my siblings a tiny bit more then I do toys but I enjoy my toys also! I spend my days playing, napping, eating and then playing some more! I like to run around with my brothers! I`m not very shy and meet the staff at my door when they come in the room! I enjoy cuddling when the staff come in to see us! I am a happy cat with lots of love to give! I can entertain you when I play just as well as the man I was named after entertained his crowd!

I get along with my brothers really well and would like to be with other cats when I find my forever home; then I have someone to play with though I can also be independent! There is still lots that I have to learn about life though as I am pretty young! Please check back again to see what else they have figured out about me! I will be ready to meet new people and hopefully go home on July 21, 2015! Will you stop by to see me? I`d love to meet you!

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!
