À propos de cet organisme

The Saskatchewan SPCA is your provincial voice on animal welfare. Since 1928, we have been working to ensure all animals in Saskatchewan are treated humanely. We do not operate a shelter. As an animal welfare organization, we promote the humane treatment of animals through education and prevention programs. The Saskatchewan SPCA believes in working collaboratively with organizations that support the humane treatment of animals. As a provincial organization, we work in concert other animal welfare organizations such as SPCAs and humane societies, rescue groups, and livestock producer groups. The Saskatchewan SPCA is proud to have a strong relationship with our partners in animal welfare.
