The FSPCA recently changed the name of the shelter facilities to the Animal Adoption Centre as sheltering is only one thing that the organization does. Prior to adoption, we take part in enrichment and behaviour modification programs with those animals that need it.
The FSPCA employs around 10 full-time and 10 part-time staff members to keep the Adoption Centre operating every day of the week. Many of the employees have worked at the FSPCA for a number of years.
The FSPCA (during COVID-19) is open by appointment only between the hours of 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. seven days a week. For Statutory Holidays – we are closed to the public.
Our services include but are not limited to: intake of stray, abandoned and injured animals, animal health care and well-being, animal enrichment, best match adoption inquiries and interviews, answering of general animal welfare inquiries and questions, adoption support, etc.
The Fredericton SPCA conducts hundreds of successful adoptions every year. Many adopters stay in touch and share updates on an on-going basis.
There is a great deal of work done by the animal-care team at the FSPCA to ensure that the animals are prepared to be adopted. This includes behaviour modification training, socialization, and best-match practices.
Every Adoption at the FSPCA includes:
The FSPCA does interviews with all potential adopters to ensure that animals are matched with adopter personalities and lifestyles.
Public education, especially for children, is on the top of the priority list for the FSPCA. Activities such as reading to the animals have been found to be of benefit for the children and also for the furry friend who is listening in.
The FSPCA offers a birthday party service on Saturdays and Sundays for children 6 and over. Parties include a behind-the-scenes tour and interaction time with animals. It also hosts dozens of tours for groups of children and youth throughout the year so the public can learn the daily activities that take place at the FSPCA.
Every summer, the FSPCA hosts a Summer Animal camp for kids where children learn about animals though interactive games, stories, videos and presentations by animal-related organizations in the community
The FSPCA offers presentations for children between 6 and 13 years that include interactive activities around pet care and bite prevention.
The FSPCA hosts a number of large events every year including:
We also host some fun smaller events as well, such as:
All our events are run with help of volunteers and local businesses who donate product for our auctions. We couldn’t do it without them!
The FSPCA accepts donations from children in the community throughout the year. Many of these young individuals come up with creative ways to raise money and donations for the animals.
The FSPCA receive donations of both money and product from hundreds of people every year. Without donors such as these, the FSPCA would not be able to operate as we are 99% donation run. Therefore, every donation, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated.
Losing a pet, friend or family member is heart wrenching, but you can honour them with a donation to the FSPCA.
The FSPCA offers several ways for individuals and business to donate in their memory. These include:
The FSPCA partners with a number of Veterinary Clinics in the GFA for medical services such as spay/neuters, emergency appointments, prescribed veterinary diets that include consultation and monitoring, acupuncture, orthopedic surgeries & follow-up, new born and orphan care, etc.
