The homeless animals in our shelters are waiting patiently and hoping for that moment when someone will look into their eyes and see how special they are.  Become a hero by rescuing a pet and creating space for more animals to be saved.

We have more than 500 volunteers that help with animal care, admin, fostering, fundraising, TNR, and supporting our thrift stores. Come see for yourself how rewarding it is and why we’ve been voted as “Best Place to Volunteer” for 7 years in a row!

DONATE YOUR TIME

Foster

Foster families provide socialization and love to pets who are young or need to recover from illnesses or injuries.  When you temporarily open up your heart and home to a foster pet, we will provide all the supplies and training you need.

Support Second Chances

The Yarmouth SPCA proudly follows no-kill principles and does not receive any government funding for their shelter.

Some pets need one-on-one support to overcome abuse and neglect. Others need emergency medical treatment to survive.

Your support saves lives. Please donate to help local pets at the Yarmouth SPCA today.

History

The Yarmouth Animal Shelter is only one of two Nova Scotia SPCA shelters west of Halifax. The Yarmouth Animal Shelter was the first to be formed in 1900 and built an animal shelter in 1982/83 with an extension added in 1989 and renovated in 2006. There are currently four employees and many dedicated volunteers that support it.

The Yarmouth Animal Shelter rescues and takes care of abused, abandoned, homeless animals and attempts to find good homes for the unwanted animals in our care. We admit approximately 700 animals per year to the shelter. The expenses of running the shelter are covered by fundraising, memberships, donations, dog control services and community events.

 

Wish List

We go through many supplies to show homeless pets the love and care they deserve. Check out our wish list here for the items we are most often in need of.
