Each year, Saskatchewan’s Moose Jaw Humane Society (MJHS) sees an average intake of over 1,500 dogs and cats, with the vast majority being strays, often going unclaimed.
Under the City of Moose Jaw bylaws, the shelter must hold all stray dogs and cats for 72 hours in impound. If they remain unclaimed or unadopted after 96 hours elapses, the city bylaw states that animals may be euthanized. The MJHS as a shelter finds that to be unacceptable and chooses instead to adopt the animal into a new home. Over the course of the animal’s stay at the shelter, the MJHS adheres to the policies and procedures of the Humane Society and Animal Protection Act of 1999.
The Moose Jaw Humane Society is a non-profit organization providing care, protection and medical needs for the abandoned, abused and neglected animals of Moose Jaw and surrounding communities. Currently, the shelter relies on fundraisers and donations for 80% of its operating budget. The Moose Jaw Humane Society believes all animals have intrinsic value, deserving humane and compassionate treatment.

From Rory Allen’s website: “Western Canadian Music Award nominee, Rory Allen, has gained international renown for his tribute to Elvis. His incredible show, authentic vocals and stunning costumes have been well-received by the most faithful Elvis fans and friends. Rory has been privileged to sing and record on several occasions with the Grammy Award-winning quartet, the legendary Jordanaires, from Nashville, Tennessee, as well as Elvis Presley’s Imperials quartet. Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Canada, Rory has always enjoyed entertaining people and from an early age he thrived on stage. Gospel music and singing in church played a huge part in developing his rich, clear and powerful singing voice.”
