Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Great Slave Animal Hospital is a Veterinary Clinic operating out of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada. We have been operating a "No-Kill" Shelter out of this business for the past 10 years. We rescue and adopt out approximately 225 animals per year. We work closely with other Shelters, humane socieities and animal rescue groups in within the Northwest Territories and Canada.

About Our Shelter:

The Great Slave Animal Hospital's Shelter is run by a great team of enthusiastic animal lovers! We have seen both the good and bad side of pet care and we choose to actively make a difference one microchip at a time! All are animals are either spayed or Neutered, Microchipped and Vaccinated prior to going to their forever home.

Come Meet our Pets:

Visiting hours for the shelter animals if from 9:00am - 7:30pm Mondays to Fridays and from 10:00am to 5:00pm on Saturdays. We are closed to the public on Sundays.

Our Adoption Process:

The Adoption Process begins with the completion of our adoption questionnaire. All applications are reviewed by the Adoptions Coordinator. The Adoptions Coordinator reserves the right to either approve or decline an application at their discretion.

Once approved the adoption coordinator will contact the potential adopter to go over fees, contracts and other such legalities.

Adoption questionnaires are approved on a "first come, first serve" basis. That is to say that the first application for any specific animal is the first to be considered for approval.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
