Lost & Found Services & Procedures
The Saskatoon SPCA recognizes that as an agency charged with handling large volumes of animals on a day-to-day basis, it is important to provide pet owners with the ability to report their animal as lost, so that we can compare these reports with animals that are in our shelter. It is also important that we provide members of the public the ability to locate owners of lost pets they find, so that those animals may be reunited with their owner.
You can come to the shelter and look for your pet during the hours listed below. Please phone 374-7387 to report a pet missing or found
|Saturdays - Tuesdays||9:00 am - 5:00 pm|
|Wednesdays and Fridays||9:00 am - 6:00 pm|
|Thursdays||9:00 am - 8:00 pm
Individuals may file a lost report by telephone or in person. It is recommended that the individual provide a current photo of their lost pet to accompany their lost report and to personally visit the SPCA to view animals in our Animal Care and Pound area as often as they can. When this is not possible, we encourage individuals to call our office during regular business hours to follow up on any new incoming animals that may not have been referenced against current lost reports yet.
Remember, while your animal may be unique to you, our staff see an average of 96 unique animals per week! The more details you can provide in describing your pet, the easier it will be for our staff to assist you in identifying your lost companion if it is brought to our shelter.
After the first 72 hours, if an animal has not been reunited with its owner and has not come into our shelter, the owner has the option to pay a $15.00 administrative fee to have their lost report held on file for up to one year from the date the animal went missing. This report may be cancelled at the owners request at anytime.
When you do find your pet, please remember to cancel all reports that you have placed, especially at the Saskatoon SPCA. Take down all posters and advise other people/agencies who may be on the lookout for your pet that the search is over.
