Does SPCA treat animals for free? As a result, it is understandable that people are finding it difficult to take care of themselves, their families and their beloved pets. The NSPCA wishes to remind the public that all unwanted and stray animals may be surrendered to any of the SPCA branches across the country, at no charge, if need be.
Can you adopt animals from SPCA? To adopt a pet from the SPCA, you must be over the age of 18, your property must be fully enclosed, you must be able to afford the services of a private vet and you must have your own transport to take your pet to the vet.
