We are a community organization in Hay River, Northwest Territories, dedicated to helping lost and abandoned animals. We're a no-kill shelter that takes care of dogs and cats and adopts them out to forever homes screened for suitability and humanity.

The mission of the Hay River Animal Shelter, a not-for- profit organization, is to protect the welfare of the animals we come in contact with, and to promote the humane treatment and well- being of these animals by :

  • Providing shelter and care for stray or abandoned animals
  • Responding with personal commitment, humane sensitivity, compassion, and technical skill to the needs of these animals
  • Actively promoting suitable adoptions of the animals
  • Encouraging the spaying and neutering of dogs and cats to ensure the numbers of unwanted animals be kept to a minimum
