The fall season provided a couple of opportunities for the SaskSPCA to get out to community events.

In September, we ventured out to Vetavision at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM) on the University of Saskatchewan campus. The two-day event is a WCVM open house run by students. The College opens its doors to the public to showcase the many important roles that veterinarians play in the world of animal health, welfare, and more.

SaskSPCA staff and volunteers staffed our Vetavision booth sharing important animal welfare information with attendees.

The Saskatchewan Association of Veterinary Technologists (SAVT) Conference took place in early November. The SaskSPCA’s Laura Zmud and Sandra Archibald from New Hope Dog Rescue (NHDR) presented on the topic of animal safekeeping and the importance of safekeeping programs. Laura and Sandra also discussed current safekeeping options available in Saskatchewan and shared more information on NHDR’s ASK and Hospital Care Programs.

The SaskSPCA’s Sandra Anderson, Kenzie Makowsky, and Mikayla Pennington also represented the Society at our display booth. It was a great opportunity to discuss animal welfare concerns
with the province’s veterinary technologists.

We extend sincere thanks to the WCVM and SAVT for inviting us to attend their amazing events!
