About Us

Here at Hay River Animal Shelter, we see the value in every animal. We strongly believe that all animals deserve to live. We stand by this model as we are a "no kill shelter". 


We are a dog and cat animal rescue located in Hay River, Northwest Territories. We assist in running the local municipal Animal Control Facility with the Hay River Bylaw Officer, accept strays/surrenders, and help with community education on proper pet ownership.

It doesn't matter if an animal is big, small, goofy, or shy. Our staff and volunteers are dedicated to each and every animal that comes through our doors. 


We are driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Animal Shelter upon: support, compassion, and dedication. Learn more about our mission, our vision, and how we go about making the changes we want to see.
