Happy Tails

Over the years we have adopted out thousands of animals to loving homes. We are so thankful for the amount of people who have stepped up to provide a forever home to one (or more) of our animals. The pets below are just a small number of the animals that we have adopted out.

If you would like your pet that you adopted from the NWT SPCA to be included below, please contact Julia at julia.randell@nwtspca.com

Nick

"I first met the big-headed Nick Furry in February 2020 at a friend's cabin who had taken him for a getaway from the shelter for the weekend. My partner and I both fell in love with him but he was already on his way to a foster home after the weekend. We contacted about fostering soon after but he was already with another home. Fast forward to the first week of lockdown in March 2020 when my friend reached out saying Nick desperately needed a new foster home and wondered if we were still interested. We knew Nick was ours forever within a few weeks of having him.

2.5 years in we could not imagine our lives without him and sometimes even ask "what did we do before having a dog"? Life with Nick has been an adventure and he always keeps us on our toes - whether he is guarding our home against the neighborhood cats and foxes, or traveling with us on fly-out or boating camping trips. Like many dogs, Nick arrived to us quite reactive towards other dogs and with a lot of hard work, it is lovely to see his progress as he has settled into a safe, happy, healthy, and comfortable life. Nick is quite the professional escape artist (his record was 2 different collars and 2 different harnesses within 2 days) which is leading me to write a children's book Nick the Northern Special about dog a-dog-tion told from the dogs perspective, of course getting lost, and learning from other northern specials what it means to find your fur-ever home." - Lana and Tyson

Slush

"After my old husky Shasta passed in December 2016, I knew I was a northern dog lover for life, so we looked straight at the NWT SPCA once we decided we were ready for a new dog in our home. With my partner's two cats, we needed to be cautious in our choice, and the shelter volunteers were incredibly helpful in testing Slush in the cat room to make sure his prey drive wasn't going to be in issue (it wasn't, he's actually smart enough to be scared of cats).

Slushy was a perfect addition to our home - fun and energetic outside, and a great lover of naps in the house; he fit in like it was always meant to be. He's a very social boy, so he goes to doggy daycare a few times a week, riding shotgun with his favorite pal Gabriel the shuttle bus driver, and then providing his massively fluffy bum as pillow to all the other dogs during naptime." - Frances

We couldn't possibly imagine our life without our Slushbear, and we have sent multiple friends to NWT SPCA, who have since found their own fuzzy companions.

Thank you so much for the gift of Slush!

Atlin (Halo)

We are a previous adopter of Halo in 2014. We changed his name to Atlin (or Atty). He had a collar left on his neck as a puppy which GSAH removed. He came to us from the NWT SPCA at 7 months old - he didn't even know how to sit. Thankfully we had another dog at the time that taught him the ropes. He got into lots of mischief with her and he has been on more adventures than I can count. It took him over two years to bond with me and now the bond is stronger than super-glue and I'm sure it will live on forever.

Atlin just turned 9, and as of 4 years ago, now lives in Australia. He is what I fondly refer to as my 'House-kie'. He is a furball that loves routine and his day is ruined if he misses out on his 'toast corners' in the AM. He loves to lay outside in the sunshine followed by more relaxing inside (after his morning walk of course). He is the most chill, best behaved pooch I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He never did grow into his ears! - Lynsey

Gibson 2005

"My daughter begged for a cat for almost a year between 2004 & 2005. We started going to the SPCA at GSAH regularly. She was bitten, scratched and really didn’t find her match… but in the room in the back was Gibson.

He was boarding for 2 months while his owner found a place that would allow pets. My daughter took him out to pet him every week, just to say hi! One Saturday in November 2005 we went in and Gibson’s kennel had an “adopt” sticker on it. Aleta noticed it and we immediately went out to the staff and advised them the wrong sticker was on the kennel… they said no, the owner had given him up that morning. We immediately started the paperwork to adopt! He is now 17 and still living his best life." - Marie
