Northern Spirit K9 Rescue

We are dedicated to reducing the number of homeless and abandoned animals on Northern Alberta. First Nations Reserves, and believe that a suitable home can be found for all the young or old homeless and unwanted animals. As a non-profit society we are committed to taking care of the homeless and abandoned animals on the Northern Alberta First Nations Reserves.


Provides veterinary care and foster homes for animals in need until a permanent furever home is found. Many of the animals rescued have never experienced a warm shelter, food, exercise, or any tender care, and our private foster homes are committed to giving the best care possible to our rescues.


Northern Spirit K9 Rescue also works with the First Nations peoples and their elders to promote responsible pet ownership, the importance of spaying and neutering, and other means of controlling the pet population on the reserves.


Northern Spirit K9 Rescue does not receive funding; therefore, we rely solely on donations, and sponsorships. We have no paid staff and use private homes for fostering, we can only take in as many animals as our resources will allow.

None of the things we have accomplished already, or hope to accomplish in the future, would be possible without the continuous fundraising efforts of our volunteers and the support of the community. Your support helps provide shelter, food, medical care and much more for the animals on First Nations Communities.
