Arctic Paws is a non-proft charitable society, formed in February 2012 by a group of SPCA volunteers who decided to make a difference that would have an immediate impact on the over-population of dogs in the Beaufort-Delta region in Inuvik.

The overpopulation of dogs in the north is a real issue. In the end it does not come down to neglect, bad dog ownership or ignorance. It comes down to the fact that traditional practices are trying to meld with new ways, the costs of simply living in the north are so high, access to any services are difficult for many because of the remoteness of the communities.

The people of the Western Arctic and Beaufort Delta have a real need for options for the dog overpopulation. We need to gather as a region and support each other, support the health and safety and well being of our communities which includes our pets. Your support will make a difference that can change an entire region. The dogs are an integrated part of our history, culture and working lifestyle. Please consider supporting us in our goal of obtaining the first mobile veterinary clinic vehicle in the NWT. Your vote benefits everyone in the NWT by building a territorial partnership and will you be directly responsible for the change in one family and one pet dog or cat`s life. You will make a difference.
