You can tell a lot about our organization, community and volunteers by our mission statement.
The St. George Animal Shelter is a registered non-profit charity.
As well, we officially announced our location on October 19th, 2019!! We plan to start building as soon as we have sufficient funds. It will be near exit 52, close to the highway and St George center. We will be a part of the animal welfare corner which will also house the new St George Vet Clinic and its dog park, which will be open to the public.
UPDATE: The road and building site have been cleared. The building design has been completed. Unfortunately, Covid19 has impacted our fundraising so the building is on hold until fundraising allows.
