Programs & services

WAG is more than just a shelter; we are a compassionate partner in the community, committed to making a positive impact on the lives of animals and the people who care for them. Through our programs & services, we strive to create a community where both animals and humans thrive together.


We care for all animals, not just those in our care. For this reason we are proud to offer the following services to our community.


At WAG, we offer a spectrum of medical care for animals, ranging from essential antibiotics to critical surgeries and long-term rehabilitation, made possible with community donations.


The WAG Financial Assistance for Spay and Neuter Program aims to increase the affordability of spaying and neutering services for low-income community members.


We recognize that parting with a beloved animal is a challenging decision. At WAG, we are dedicated to collaborating with you to find the best solution for both you and your pet.


We offer important services to our local community, including bylaw inforcement, dog licensing and pet ownership assistance to those in need.

Compassionate boarding

Compassionate boarding at WAG is a sanctuary for animals and families in crisis, whether due to natural disasters, medical emergencies, or other challenges such as temporary homelessness, incarceration or mental health crisis.

This service provides temporary care for animals in numerous ways, such as the case of Oakley and her seven puppies. Oakley became pregnant before her family could afford to get her spayed, resulting in overwhelming challenges in caring for her and her large litter. When her family reached out for assistance, we took Oakey into our care through our compassionate boarding program. We ensured Oakley and her pups thrived until they were old enough to be weaned, ready to find forever homes through our adoption program. After Oakley was spayed, she was happily reunited with her family. 


This program not only supports individual animals and families but also reduces unwanted litters, reducing animal suffering and promoting healthier and safer communities.


Additionally, we extend our support to outdoor animals recovering from surgeries, such as spay and neuter procedures in remote areas, by providing essential aftercare that families may not be equipped to give.

  • We offer advice on animal care and guidance on training animal behavior to help families care for their dogs & cats.


FANS (Low-Cost Spay and Neuter Program):
  • We believe that spaying and neutering is the most proactive measure in combating animal homelessness and alleviating suffering.

  • Eligible guardians will receive financial aid, making these essential services more accessible.
