Adopting a dog can be a life-changing experience, not only for the dog but for the adopter as well. Every year, thousands of dogs find themselves in shelters, waiting for someone to come and give them a forever home. The Saskatoon Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) is one such organization that works tirelessly to provide a safe haven for these dogs and find them loving families.
One such person is Sarah, who adopted their dog, Jax, from the Saskatoon SPCA shelter two years ago. Jax was abandoned at Avalon Dog Park in Saskatoon, left to fend for herself in the freezing cold February weather. Luckily, two kind ladies noticed her and called the SPCA to pick her up. When Sarah was at the SPCA, she was immediately drawn to her sweet nature and playful personality.
“I knew I wanted to adopt a dog, and when I saw Jax, I knew she was the one,” said Sarah.
Jax was a bit timid at first, but with patience and love, she quickly came out of her shell. Sarah amazed at how quickly Jax adapted to her new home, and how much love she had to give.
“She’s such a sweet dog, and she’s so grateful to have a home,” said Sarah. “We couldn’t imagine our lives without her.”
Sarah credits the Saskatoon SPCA shelter for providing them with the opportunity to adopt Bella. She was impressed with the care and attention that the shelter staff gave to each dog, and the commitment they had to finding each dog a loving home.
“The Saskatoon SPCA does such important work,” said Sarah. “We’re grateful for all they do to help animals in need.”
Sarah also have a special appreciation for the foster families who care for dogs until they find their forever homes.
“Thank goodness for the foster families for the work they do,” said Sarah. “I would have a hard time giving up the animal if I was a foster family. We have history as a foster family! We tried it and adopted the dog we were fostering. Some foster program I would say!!”
Sarah have become advocates for adoption and encourage others to consider adopting a dog from a shelter.
“Adopting a dog is such a rewarding experience,” said sarah. “Not only are you giving a dog a second chance at a happy life, but you’re also gaining a loyal companion who will love you unconditionally.”
If you’re considering adding a furry friend to your family, consider adopting from the Saskatoon SPCA shelter. There are so many dogs waiting for their forever homes, and one of them could be the perfect fit for you.
