The Saskatchewan Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Saskatchewan SPCA) is an animal welfare organization based in Saskatoon.

As the provincial voice on animal welfare, we help raise awareness of the human-animal bond and promote the humane treatment of animals.

We are working with stakeholders from across the province to implement an innovative new registration program for animal rescue groups. As well, we are developing resources to help both the animal and the human victims of violence and abuse. We help make a positive difference in the lives of animals throughout the province through initiatives such as the Stryker K-9 Care Fund for retired police dogs and humane education.

We operate with the generous support of our members, donors, and volunteers. Proceeds from fundraisers, donations, and memberships are used to prevent animal cruelty and promote the humane treatment of animals.
