Greater Nechako Animal Welfare Society

Tuesday, Nov 29 is Giving Tuesday! Please Help Us Help Animals in Need!

Demand for assistance with feral, stray, and abandoned cats and kittens is growing in our community, but our bank account is not keeping up. Our costs are many: live traps, spay/neuter surgery, basic and emergency veterinary care, food, cat litter, and so on.
For the price of a coffee and a bagel, you can help make a difference to the lives of animals in Vanderhoof and the Nechako Valley! We are challenging everyone to donate at least five dollars and to have at least five friends donate five dollars!! Use your facebook, twitter, instagram accounts, email, etc. to challenge your friends to participate today! Our goal is to raise $1,000 for G.N.A.W.S. to help more animals in need in 2017!

If you would like to volunteer with G.N.A.W.S. as a director on our Board, with trapping (we can teach!), fostering, transporting, volunteer coordination or some other activity that you think could help us, please send us an email at and let us know.
The Directors of G.N.A.W.S. and the animals thank you for your support!
