Adoption Fees

"Why should I adopt from the Saskatoon SPCA?"

When you adopt a pet from the Saskatoon SPCA, you receive an outstanding package of values that not only saves your family hundreds of dollars, but supports your new furry friend in getting the right start in your home and community. Adoptions include the following value-added benefits:
- Cat or Dog Microchip:   Research reveals the majority of pets experience at least one loss incident in their lives. This small, scannable chip is painlessly inserted under the animal's skin, and as permanent ID, allows any vet clinic, shelter, or animal control agency to identify your pet, and contact you

- Cat or Dog Spay or neuter: S/N has been shown to reduce behavior issues, and contribute to a safe, more secure life for your pet

- Up-to-date vaccinations and deworming

- Any pre-adoption veterinary or grooming care the pet required – often including dental work that can run into the hundreds of dollars

- Complimentary veterinary health examination at local participating clinic of your choice

The total value of our adoptions package of benefits ranges from $550 to more than $1,500 – depending on the variety of veterinary and grooming services the pet required. We do not make money on adoptions. Adopting is the best deal in the town!

Please note that if you are adopting a cat or a dog and you live within City limits, you will also be required to purchase a City of Saskatoon pet license at the time of adoption (not included in adoption fees).
