Old Souls

As animals age their health, mobility, and general care needs change. This program focuses on finding these senior animal’s appropriate homes that best suit their needs and abilities.  We consider cats and small dogs 10 years old and large dogs 8 years old to be seniors.


At times, the Medicine Hat SPCA receives animals into care that would be better suited to be set up in a temporary foster home. This includes: Momma dogs and cats with litters, pregnant momma’s, orphaned puppies or kittens, animals with special medical needs and animals with special behavioral needs.

FeLV/FIV Program

Feline Leukemia Virus and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus are infectious agents prevalent within all cat populations. This is a multimodal program that will allow us to help prevent the spread of these viruses through vaccination, thorough routine screening, while providing appropriate housing and care in order to find these deserving cats forever homes.

Enrichment Program

The shelter environment can be stressful but we strive to help ease that stress by providing appropriate housing, enrichment opportunities and activities for every animal in our care. This leads to happier, healthier, and more adoptable animals.

Spay/Neuter Assistance Program

Pet overpopulation is a huge problem in Medicine Hat. As a responsible animal owner, it is up to us to help control this problem. Consequently, the MHSPCA in coordination with the City of Medicine Hat will offer the Spay/Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP). This program was put into place for those individuals wanting to help but face financial difficulties.
