Animal Pound Services
The Swift Current SPCA has several kennels dedicated to housing dogs and three cages for cats brought in by City animal control officers. Once the animals are in our care we are responsible to advertise them, care for them as we would other pets in our shelter, and if owners are identified we charge applicable pound fees and licensing fees if the dog is not already licensed. Pound fees for the first 72 hours of the dog’s stay goes to the City. If any necessary medical treatments are undertaken with the pets while in our custody, the reclaiming owner will also be responsible for these costs. Wild, vicious, aggressive or otherwise unadoptable animals may be brought to the Shelter by City animal control officers to await reclaiming by their owners, however the Shelter is unable to accept these animals for future adoption.
