Progress Made On New Registration Program


The Working Group includes representatives from rescue groups, SPCAs and Humane Societies, the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Protection Services of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Veterinary Medical Association, as well as the Saskatchewan SPCA.

The Working Group has drafted a decision making framework for the program as well as a code of ethics and conflict of interest guidelines.

The certification and registration program will offer practical guidelines for the care of rescue animals. Care guidelines will be based on the Association of Shelter Vets Guidelines for Standards of Care in Animal Shelters (2010) and the ASCPA Shelter Care Checklists: Putting ASV Guidelines into Action.

Once the program is finalized, it will be administered by the Saskatchewan SPCA, with a separate oversight committee.

A meeting for stakeholder groups in the animal welfare sector will be held in October 2017. The meeting will provide the opportunity for rescue groups to learn more about the program and how they can get involved.
