To protect and enhance the quality of life for all domestic animals in NWT 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 love 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.
About NWT SPCA
The NWT SPCA is a non-profit, charitable, and volunteer-run organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for all domestic animals in the Northwest Territories since its establishment in 1988. Through public education and awareness, relationship building in communities and partnering organizations within and outside of the NWT we are achieving this. We support stronger animal protection legislation, offer various programs and services to the residents in the NWT, participate in animal rescue and protection initiatives, and run programs to support adoptions and fostering of abandoned, stray, and neglected animals.
What People Are Saying
"Hard work, compassion and a common goal to help all animals in the North is what keeps this organization going. Blood, sweat and many tears is the norm but it is all worth it to help just one animal that is suffering."
