About the NWT SPCA
The NWT SPCA is a non-profit, charitable, volunteer Board-ran organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for all domesticated animals in the NORTH. We do this through general public education and awareness, relationship building in communities and partnering with organizations outside and within the NWT. We are pleased to offer various programs and services to the residents in the NWT. These services include animal rescue and protection initiatives, Pet Food and Supplies for Communities Program, adoption and fostering, and various volunteer shelter programs. We also offer a Community spay/neuter program at our Shelter clinic with Dr. Michelle Tuma and go into communities for clinics under our Animal Health Initiative program. We work with Vets Without Borders as well as the Sahtu Vet Team from Calgary.
We are proud to say we opened our first animal shelter in October 2012 and continue to complete, improve and build on the facility and the programs we offer.
To protect and enhance the quality of life for all domestic animals in Northwest Territories and to help support the North in appreciating and learning the value of the northern dog in today’s society.
To prevent animal cruelty; educate about humane treatment of animals; provide shelter and care to abandoned and abused animals; and encourage adoption to suitable homes. Through education and programming, we hope to promote responsible pet ownership and encourage spaying/neutering, so animals can live the best life possible.
Our overall goal is to engage and encourage our society to help build communities where all animals who depend on humans for their wellbeing can experience freedom from hunger and thirst, pain and injury, distress and discomfort.
