We went to visit all the newer dogs available for adoption at the Saskatoon SPCA on Clarence recently. Wow! There are a lot of amazing dogs that need a good home. Have you ever considered adopting a dog from the Saskatoon SPCA? If you have ever thought of it now is a good time to look into it a little more. We made a little video of all the adoptable dogs we took out for a walk. They were all adorable. Every one of them loved the attention, were friendly and all wanted to cuddle. Well the big Great Dane just wanted to run around! Some dogs we left in their kennels as they just had some surgery and we did not want the bug them. They were really cute. All of these dogs at the Saskatoon SPCA need a good home. Talk to your family and see if one of them might be suitable in your home.

The Sutherland Beach Off Leash Recreation Area in Saskatoon is a great place to take your dog for a long walk through forested paths, at the sides of fields and down by the South Saskatchewan River water. You are sure to bump in to familiar faces and furry friends during your walk. Lots of birds fly around, an occasional deer might spring up in the evening, and if you are lucky, the elusive beaver may swim by or chop a log for you. You can do a good lap or two to get good exercise. We go there at least once per day with Turk, who we adopted from the Saskatoon SPCA. He loves it there. There are dogs of all kinds there, big and small. And even some giant ones!! The park is very clean and they have garbage bins throughout to throw away the dog poop. The Sutherland Beach Off Leash Recreation Area is also connected to a fenced in area that is used by cyclists, walkers and runners. Turk did one day find a hole under the fence and used it. Actually, I think he had seen it before and was eyeing it up. Then one day he decided when I wasn’t really looking he could crawl under it and hang out on the other side. See picture below.
There is a major path that takes you right to the South Saskatchewan River where in the summer the low water levels create an awesome sandy beach area. The dogs can also get a little drink of water too. Go there with your dog and you will love it!
To get there go to Central Avenue and Attridge Drive and go north on Central. Take your first left and go down the dirt road that runs parallel to Attridge. Drive right to the Cul De Sac, get your dog out, and go for a walk!
Please clean up after your pet and make sure your dog is licensed.

Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed visit the Saskatoon SPCA to adopt a pet. They recommend the Saskatoon SPCA as they have great pets. So do we at SaskatoonUpClose.com. We adopted a Turk their recently too. We don’t have the clout of Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed yet so we wanted to post their thoughts here. Go to the Saskatoon SPCA and give a pet a good home. See our other post about A Successful Saskatoon SPCA Story on this site.
Stacey and I had been watching the paper for pets from the Saskatoon SPCA adoption program for several months. There were many dogs that we would have loved to adopt but we had to make sure we were ready for the responsibility. We also just had adopted a found kitty in Saskatoon, we call her New Kitty, so we had to make sure she was settled first. One day in June 2011 I spotted Turk in the paper. He had been in and out of the Saskatoon SPCA for 3 years!! He looked so cute and had all the right characteristics for a great adoption candidate for our situation. So we decided to go ask him if he would like to come home with us. Well it turned out great and this video is about going to the Saskatoon SPCA to meet him then taking him home with us.
Watch the video, enjoy it, discuss with your family if adopting a dog or cat is a good idea for your family and go to the Saskatoon SPCA to check them out. Their staff was super friendly and just happy to give Turk a home.
