Spay & Neuter Clinics
The mission of Save A Dog Network Canada is to provide assistance to northern communities by removing injured and unwanted dogs while providing education and resources to members of the community and networking with adopting rescues to reduce unwanted dogs in Manitoba by re-homing them out of province.
One of the ways we assist rural communities in Manitoba is through our temporary Spay & Neuter Clinics which take place throughout the year – trips are made to remote locations which do not have veterinary access – at these pop-up clinics, community residents have access to assessment, treatment and medication that their dogs otherwise may not receive.
We at SADN are proud to be able to offer our rural communities the use of our temporary clinics, as these are a crucial component in our goal to curb and one day end the over-population of dogs on our First Nations. Without veterinary care available to have dogs spayed or neutered, over-population quickly becomes a very serious problem which often results in unwanted or abandoned animals and feral stays roaming (potentially making it unsafe for people, especially children).

These clinics would not be possible without the friendship and cooperation of our friends within these communities, and we look forward to working together to bring these much needed resources where they are needed most! Since Save A Dog Network Canada was established back in 2013, we have visited multiple First Nation communities and have successfully completed dozens of our spay & neuter clinics.
