The NWT SPCA is a non-profit, charitable, volunteer-ran organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for all pets in the NORTH. We do this through public education and awareness, relationship building in communities and partnering organizations outside of the NWT, lobbying government for stronger animal protection legislation, offering various programs and services to the residents in the NWT such as animal rescue and protection initiatives, adoptions and fostering of abandoned, abused and neglected animals. We also offer a spay/neuter loan program to help people with that important but costly surgery.
We currently have a foster program where we have volunteers taking in rescue dogs and cats into their homes until we can get them transferred down south to Alberta, BC or adopt them here in the NWT. We get most of our dogs from the smaller communities of the Territories. We take what we have room for and save as many as possible.
Our new Shelter is open, and we will still continue our foster program as this helps socialize animals for adoption.
The Great Slave Animal Hospital also has many animals that are looking for homes. If you are interested in adopting any of these animals please contact them directly at 867-873-2579 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or click here to see their Petfinder website.
There is an unending supply of animals needing homes, please consider adoption, fostering, or even dog walking, it's a great way to get to know the animals. You can help by not buying a pet from a Pet Store/Puppy Mill or Backyard Breeder. And encourage everyone to have their pet spay and neutered, it will make all the difference in the North.
Don't forget to check out Fort Smith and Hay River, they have animals needing homes too!
