Frequently Asked Questions

If you don’t find the answer you are looking for below, please contact the Medicine Hat SPCA and we’re happy to help you.

Yes. We operate independently of all other humane organizations.

Our hours are:

7 days/week – 12 Noon to 6 PM
Closed Christmas Day and New Year’s Day

NOTE:We are closed every second Wednesday of the month for training.

We believe in the humane treatment of animals. There are instances when animals are euthanized under our care due to an untreatable condition. This is conducted by a veterinarian with accordance with the SPCA policy.

For your safety, do not approach an unknown animal.

Instead: note the breed, colour, size and location of the dog; and call Bylaw Enforcement at 403-529-8400 to request pickup of the dog. The Bylaw Officer will take the dog to the Alberta Pound & Rescue Centre (APARC).

The team at the SPCA understands that surrendering your companion animal, for whatever reason, can be an emotional decision. If you need to relinquish your animal, we ask that you please call 403-526-7722 to schedule an appointment. There is small fee to transfer your animal to our care.
