COVID-19 Response: Parks, Playgrounds and Dog Parks
Effective March 25, City-owned playground structures will close until further notice. This action was necessary because the shared surfaces people touch - especially playground equipment - should not be used right now for the health and safety of you and your family.
As we recognize the importance of getting fresh air and exercise each day, spaces including trails, dog parks and public squares remain open. Visitors must maintain a safe, two-metre (six feet) distance away from others using outdoor spaces. Consider outings by yourself or with just one other person at the appropriate distance. Sports fields should not be used for organized sports or play, and do not play any games, sports and activities, like soccer and shinny hockey, that put you in close contact with others. Visit saskatoon.ca/covid-19 for the latest information.
Purchase or renew your Pet License online or in person at City Hall, Saskatoon Animal Control Agency, Saskatoon SPCA or any participating pet license vendors.
Subsidized Spay & Neuter Program
The City of Saskatoon Subsidized Spay and Neuter Program (SSNP) provides financial assistance to low income pet owners to allow them to access discounted veterinary services to spay or neuter their pets.
Dog Parks can be a great place to get exercise and socialize. Enjoy some off-leash time with your dog at one of the City of Saskatoon Dog Parks.
For the purposes of public safety, the City of Saskatoon enforces rules around animal ownership, licensing and control. Find out more.
Good Dogs Bite Too
When most dogs bite they do so out of fear. It is important to recognize the warning signs dogs display when they are feeling anxious or fearful. Everyone can prevent dog bites from happening - including you! Prevention is key for a safe community.
Cats make great pets to have around the home. Every cat has a unique personality and quickly becomes a part of your family. While cats are typically known for being relatively low maintenance, there are a lot of things to consider to ensure they are at their happiest and healthiest.
