About Us

Policies

The Alberta SPCA has a well-established set of policies and procedures that guide its operations and staff activities. Because of the nature of our work as a charity, educational organization and enforcement agency, many of these policies concern our interactions with the public.

Privacy

The Alberta SPCA is committed to protecting the privacy of its members, supporters, volunteers, employees and other stakeholders. We value the trust of the public and recognize that maintaining this trust requires that we be transparent and accountable in how we treat personal information.  Read about our privacy policies . . .

Donors

As a charitable organization, the Alberta SPCA relies on the generosity of donors to fund programs. Maintaining a strong, open relationship with donors is essential—they need to have full confidence that their money is going to support the activities we said it would.  Read our donors bill of rights . . .

Volunteers

Volunteers have played a major role in the Alberta SPCA since its inception in 1959. Volunteers help us meet the challenges of balancing the great demand for our services with our limited financial resources.  Read about our volunteer policies . . .

Education

The Alberta SPCA believes people have a duty to accept responsibility for the welfare of animals. EveryLivingThing.ca is the Alberta SPCA’s humane education website for teachers who want to inspire compassion for animals, people and the environment—every living thing!  Read about our education policies . . .

Enforcement

The Alberta SPCA’s peace officers are sworn in under Alberta’s Peace Officer Act, and we have an extensive policies and procedures manual for our Animal Protection Services Staff that ensures they meet the standards set by the Alberta Solicitor General.  Read about our enforcement policies . . .
