News: Upcoming Events & Assistance Needed

Check out the MJHS Book Store at our NEW location!

Do you love animals? Do you love books? If your answer to both of those questions is yes, then the Moose Jaw Humane Society has great news for you: our new and improved book store opens January 16 at 9:00 am! Please join us at our new location at the Moose Jaw Exhibition Grounds in the building North of the Golden Nugget. We are so excited for our new location as now you can kick back, buy a cup of coffee, browse our books and cuddle with our adoptable cats. YES, you read that correctly, not only can you pick up a new book but you can also adopt a new feline reading buddy right at our store!

With books in genres that range from fantasy to non-fiction to romance to do-it-yourself and cookbooks, we have something for everyone. You will even find some children’s literature so you can help foster a new generation of readers at a more than reasonable price! The book store will run Monday to Saturday, 9 am to 5:30 pm January 16 to February 11. This may seem like plenty of time to find the books you want, but at prices even Amazon.ca can’t beat they’ll be flying off the shelves. We will also be constantly bringing out new stock to keep our shelves full, so you’ll want to shop with us often to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the fantastic books available.

If you’re interested in helping as well as shopping, we are also looking for volunteers to help sell books and restock the shelves. If you need some volunteer hours or just want to help homeless animals while being surrounded by literature of all kinds, we would love to have you. To volunteer, you can come to the shelter to fill out a volunteer form, email events@mjhs.ca or call for more information at 306-692-1517.

We look forward to seeing all you animal loving bookworms starting January 16th!

Protect your animal family!

Dogs in yard

Keeping your animals safe and healthy is the duty of every animal guardian.

We get so many calls here at the Moose Jaw Humane Society from people who have lost their pets, or from others who have found pets on the loose. We pick up dogs on the run and do our best to reunite them with their owners. We also care for many stray cats, and either reunite them with their owners or find new homes for them. But what can you do to prevent this from happening in the first place?

License your dogs

City of Moose Jaw bylaws require that all dogs have a license. The license must be purchased annually by March 31st. License fees are $15 for spayed or neutered dogs, or $40 for others. Dog Licenses can be obtained from the Customer Service area in City Hall, or from the Moose Jaw Humane Society office. It is such a small price to pay because if your dog is licensed, it makes it fast and easy for us to reunite you with your pet.

Keep your cats close

City bylaws do not require that cats be licensed, however, it does provide for trapping and impoundment of cats where a complaint has been received. So, for the safety of your cat, keep them inside, or at least have a collar on them with an ID tag.

Some of the main dangers faced by outdoor cats include predation by other animals, being hit by a cars, human cruelty, and exposure to hazardous chemicals. Switch the toxic ethylene glycol antifreeze in your vehicle to pet-friendly propylene-based antifreeze.

Make your cat is vaccinated. Outdoor cats are exposed to devastating contagious diseases such as feline leukemia, feline immunodeficiency virus, feline distemper and rabies. Cats also easily pick up internal parasites (worms) and external parasites (fleas, ticks). Some of these parasites can be transmitted to other pets and people.

Having your pet spayed or neutered is perhaps the most important part of being a responsible pet guardian. Being responsible also means providing your pet with a warm, safe and loving environment, food and water, exercise and proper veterinary care. You should also obey the leash, "poop and scoop" and licensing laws in your community.

All of these things contribute to a safe, happy and healthy pet population in the City of Moose Jaw.
