The Souris Valley Animal Shelter strives to improve the quality of life for pets and people in the Ward County and the entire North West region of North Dakota. The Animal Shelter reunites lost pets with their owners, cares for, loves, and finds homes for stray, surrendered and abandoned animals, controls the pet population with mandatory spay/neuter requirements for pets that are adopted from our facility and by offering financial assistance when needed. Additionally, we microchip animals for identification purposes, provide burial/cremation services, and promote responsible pet ownership, but our fundamental goal is to place all of our dogs and cats in humane environments full of love! During a recent nationwide study a vast majority of Americans believe that a better world is possible through the kindness to animals and we are morally obligated to take care of animals. We at the Souris Valley Animal Shelter are guided by the principle of caring for the world around us by caring for the animals under our care.
