THE LLOYDMINSTER & DISTRICT SPCA IS A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION
The Lloydminster and District S.P.C.A in a non-profit organization which receives funding from the City of Lloydminster for operational costs of the shelter. This municipal funding is our main source of ongoing funding as we do not receive any provincial or federal funding. General fees at the shelter, along with general donations, fundraisers, and grants make up the rest of our operational budget. These mulitple sources allow us to continually pay our monthly bills, staff wages, building upgrades/maintenance, utility expenses, cleaning materials, pet food and supplies, veterinary fees, and all other miscellaneous costs. We thank the City of Lloydminster, all of our donors, and fundraiser volunteers/attendees for their support.
A loving, responsible home for every animal.
Through education, spay and neuter programs, temporary shelter and permanent placement of animals into loving homes, the Lloydminster & District SPCA is committed to reduce or eliminate the number of neglected and abandoned companion animals in our community.

What Can You Do as Volunteer?
Dog Walk Program
This is our primary "hands on" program where volunteers work directly with the animals. This program was developed to improve the quality of life for the dogs staying at the Shelter. A dog that is walked and has social interaction every day is healthier, happier, and more likely to be adopted.
Cat Cuddlers Program
This program involves socializing with shelter cats during their stay at the facility. The Lloydminster & District SPCA volunteers play with, groom, and give our furry friends the love and affection they need. Did you know the sound of purring has been proven to reduce stress and provide relaxation?
