I went to visit Blueberry at The Saskatoon SPCA this week to help her get adopted. I had heard a lot about her since she was a very special case. What I met was a very adorable and affectionate cat, despite her trauma. She is actually unbelievable. She has been through a lot and still so loving.
Blueberry is a 3 year old black domestic short hair that arrived at the shelter on January 20th, and is currently available for adoption at the Saskatoon SPCA.
Blueberry was picked up by Animal Protective Services after being found injured at a local business. She was taken to The Small Animal Clinic at the University of Saskatchewan where she was found to be dehydrated, underweight and suffering from puncture wounds on her back and side as well as severe frost bite to her ears, feet and tail. Blueberry’s wounds were cleaned she was put on medication and given time to heal. She has had to have almost half her tail amputated due to the frost bite but she does not appear to notice the lack of length. Blueberry may look a little rough around the edges but has a heart of gold on the inside. Quick to snuggle and give kisses Blueberry is very much a cat that likes to cuddle with you and will lay in her cat bed while you check your morning emails. Her meow is very quiet and distinctive but she has a large personality and will let you know when she wants something. If you are interested in Blueberry please contact the Saskatoon SPCA at 306-374-7387.
Forecast and Blizzard are a dog and cat that came in the Saskatoon SPCA as their Animal Protection Officers brought them from being abandoned together in the bathroom of a gas station in Saskatoon. This is right from the Facebook page of the Saskatoon SPCA.
“Forecast, the black puppy with the striking blue eye, is an eleven-month old puppy. She is an extremely affectionate dog: her favourite hobbies being hugging people and staring at them lovingly. Her companion, Blizzard, is a gregarious, young adult cat.
These two seem to be the best of friends and our staff have been delighted to watch the pair play, relax and cuddle together. While we would be happy to find these guys a forever home, we would be absolutely thrilled to see them adopted together.
If anyone is kind enough to open their home and hearts to both of these sweet animals, the Saskatoon SPCA will waive 50% of the adoption fee for Blizzard!”

As of January 26, 2013, the Saskatoon SPCA has some great rabbits that are available for adoption. These are just two of them. Joey and Jetson seen in the video are really gentle and friendly. Both are a little shy but after spending 5 minutes with them they warmed up fast.
They both were found as strays in Saskatoon and can be adopted for $35. Joey is approximately 6 months old and Jetson is approximately 15 months old. Make sure you learn about how to take care of a rabbit properly before you adopt one.

Pets in the Park, held at the Kiwanis Memorial Park on Spadina Crescent in Saskatoon, was held on July 8, 2012 and was a great success. There were so many families there with their pets in support of the event that raises awareness and money for the Saskatoon SPCA, New Hope Dog Rescue and SCAT Street Cat Rescue Program. This is the only time during the year that the City of Saskatoon allows on leash pets in this park. It is a well treed park that banks the South Saskatchewan River offering fantastic views. We enjoyed taking pictures and video of all the furry friends and their families.
From their website at http://www.petsinthepark.ca/
Saskatoon Pets in the Park Inc. (PIP) is a registered charity founded in 2006 and dedicated to raising funds to provide care for sick, injured, neo-natal and homeless animals from Saskatoon. Members of the PIP Committee include members from three local animal welfare agencies, New Hope Dog Rescue, the Saskatoon SPCA, and SCAT Street Cat Rescue Program, as well as some very dedicated animal lovers from the Saskatoon community.
Pets in the Park (PIP) is one of Saskatoon’s popular summer events which combines fun for the entire family with fundraising for a great cause. Families can bring their leashed pets to the park and enjoy a wonderful day together. It is held every year on the weekend of July just following the Jazz Festival.
This is the only day of the year that City Council generously grants permission to allow on leash pets to accompany their human families in one of Saskatoon’s most picturesque downtown parks – Kiwanis Memorial Park.
Good music by local musicians and guests is heard on the Showmobile. Demonstrations abound with such activies as dog agility and/or flyball, City of Saskatoon Police K-9 services and dog training show how much we depend on our canine pets and how we can spend quality time with them.
The Saskatoon SPCA holds their hugely successful walkathon every year in conjunction with the PIP event. There always a good chance to see the UofS Huskies during the walk, as well as local dignitaries such as Mayor Don Atchison and the Honourary Chairperson, Mardele Atchison. If you keep a sharp eye, you may even see some visiting celebrities.
The food concession offers a great selection of tasty BBQ as well as treats such as popcorn and sno-cones. There are even doggie sno-cones. At the baking table there are wonderful, homemade goodies right beside the free coffee. Water is provided on site, both for humans and animals. And the dogs get a chance to cool off in the doggie pools.
The Silent Auction has a myriad of outstanding items. The right bid lets you take the prize home. Don’t forget, please be generous with your bids. It’s all for the animals.
The Trade Booth area is expanding rapidly with every year. Pet-related businesses and other non-profit organizations are invited to showcase their products and services to the animal lovers of Saskatoon.
Sponsors, such as Pizza Hut Saskatoon, and participants, like you, help to make this event a truly sensational event and one that neither you, nor your pet, want to miss.
It’s a great opportunity for pets to socialize with other pets, and for pet parents to show off their furry children, all the while, benefiting the animals in need.
We welcome visitors from all over Western Canada to this amazing day.

We went to see the President’s Choice Superdogs Bite it! show at the Saskatoon Exhibition (Saskatoon Ex) and they were amazing. Absolutely amazing! To see all those different dog breeds strut their stuff and do a ton of tricks was stunning. They are more than tricks though. The dogs interact with each other and their handlers in a choreographed sequence of tricks, jumps, dances, walks, runs, chases and lots of barking. It was very entertaining and the crowd was full of a large mix of people. The show was free but I would have gladly paid for it. The video shows some of the event only. You have to go to see how entertaining it really is. All the dogs are actually just pets from the house that join the show at different intervals. Another good thing that was presented was that over 40% of the dogs came from a shelter. Good for them! The show is sponsored by President’s Choice and their brand was clearly evident at the show but they did not ram it down your throat. The show travels all across Canada so nice to have sponsorship. If you go to their website you can learn more about the show, their itinerary and its interesting history.

Felicia is a cute little thing staying at the safe shelter at the Saskatoon SPCA. She is very quiet and needs confidence building from a patient, understanding and dedicated family. She was rescued in a seizure in Northern Saskatchewan. She is a husky cross. She didn’t want to play very much. She just wanted to lie there safely. She did let us pet her and hang out with her but was scared. She behaved really adorably. She did not want to come with us on the leash at first but with a little patience she came with us. Please watch the video to see how cute Felicia really is. They say pictures are worth a thousand words, but video is worth a million pictures. Please share this video with as many people as you can. Share the video with all of your friends. Someone out there may be interested in meeting with her.

Zeke is a border collie that would love a happy home. He is doing fine at the safe shelter at the Saskatoon SPCA on Clarence Avenue south of Circle Drive in Saskatoon but he wants a family. He is 3 years old, neutered, brought in my animal control, he is not recommended for first time dog owners, would need a job to do like flyball, needs to work on his food skill, and likes to be the dominant dog. He is very fun to be around and loves to listen and play. He is super fast. He was good on the leash too.
If you are interested in adopting this fun dog please contact the Saskatoon SPCA on their website at:
