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 [email protected]
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.
