Are you looking to adopt a dog? Are you in Saskatchewan, Canada? If so, you’ve come to the right place.

Below we put together a list of shelters and rescues that have dogs for adoption in Saskatchewan.

When we first started looking for our first dog as a responsible adult we checked out breeders as well as shelters and rescues.

We were specifically looking at three breeds Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, and Australian Shepherds.

Contrary to popular opinion you can find purebred dogs at animal shelters and rescues.

Lucky for us we found a puppy that had two out of three breeds in his mix. Linus was an 2 month old Aussie Lab mix puppy.

We knew he was the one so we paid his adoption fee, waited for him to get his vaccinations and microchipping, and the rest is history!

FAQ’s

Where Can I Adopt A Small Dog In Saskatchewan?

We talked about this a few days ago, when it comes to dogs size matters. Many people prefer a smaller dog simply because they eat less food which in turn leads to smaller dog food bills.

That being said we came across one rescue in Saskatchewan that specializes in smaller dogs:

If you can’t find the perfect dog at this rescue, not to worry. Most rescues have adoptable dogs of all sizes. So, be patient and check out some of the other rescues on our list.

Where Can I Adopt An Older Dog In Saskatchewan?

Older dogs can be great for a slower paced household. In fact, my parents are looking for a senior dog that is still in good enough shape to go on leisurely strolls through the neighborhood.

While none of the shelters or rescues we found across Saskatchewan specialized in older dogs most every rescue will have adoptable senior dogs at their facility from time to time.

Please check the websites frequently to see what dogs are available for adoption.

Are There Any Moose Jaw Dog Rescues?

We came across three dog rescues that are located in or cover the Moose Jaw Saskatchewan area. Yo, check them out:

If you can’t find an adoptable dog at one of these facilities we recommend you expand your search radius to other dog shelters and rescues in and around Saskatchewan.

Also, patience is a virtue. Remain patient and you’ll find the right dog for you.

Final Thoughts

I’ve mentioned it before here on the blog. We’ve rescued dogs, fostered dogs, raised service dogs, and even purchased a dog through a reputable breeder.

I like the quote “Adopt Before You Shop.” I’m an advocate of finding the right dog for you starting by looking at your options for adoption.

As I mentioned you can find purebred dogs at shelters and rescues. There are even some rescues specializing in specific breeds, older dogs, smaller dogs, etc.

Do your research. Take your time. Be patient. When getting a dog do not be impulsive.

We found our heart dog, Linus at the animal shelter. Bringing him home was one of the best decisions I made in my life.

Have you ever adopted a dog from the animal shelter or rescue?
