A Shelter Full of Hope and Promise

It has been a difficult month for WAG staff and we are heartbroken to announce that, despite the absolute best medical care, Millie passed away suddenly in the loving care of Eagleview Veterinary Hospital. There was nothing anyone could have done, as she had a major seizure and was gone very quickly.




WAG staff was called at the end of the business day on June 20 about another extremely sick puppy. This poor pup was never vaccinated and is now suffering from the deadly Parvovirus and owners unable to provide the necessary care. Again, wag is now left with the responsibility of this poor pup who we have named Oliver...

We are OPEN for PUBLIC VISITING HOURS from Thursdays to Saturdays from 1 pm to 4 pm, but staff and volunteers are at the shelter 7 DAYS PER WEEK, 365 DAYS PER YEAR!

Our Public Visiting Hours are for general inquiries, adoption questions, shelter information, and more. Animal visits will only be available if we have appropriate animals.

Being a non-profit, we have very limited staffing resources and are unable to have a full-time receptionist to manage visitors for longer than these hours.

We are ALWAYS available, however, for volunteer shifts, adoption appointments, foster pick ups and drop offs, and more. AS LONG AS WE KNOW YOU ARE COMING, WE CAN MEET YOU ALMOST ANY DAY!

Please do not bang or pull on the door when we are closed - contact us and arrange a time to meet a staff member, as we are often working in the back. 

We are available for Bylaw pick ups from 9am to 6pm daily.

no parking


Hello, WAG supporters!

You may or may not have noticed how busy it has gotten around the shelter lately with traffic and limited parking, but we would like to let everyone know that the few spaces directly in front of the shelter have been reserved for WAG.

We have worked hard to keep these spots available for our volunteers, transport drivers, foster homes, and adopters, so please only park here if you are visiting WAG. Often our animals are sick, injured, in crates, or recovering from surgery and need to be carried into the building.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
