about us

Our Organization

The Gwaii Animal Helpline Society (GAHS) is a BC registered non profit society located on Haida Gwaii, which is the unceded territory of the Haida Nation. We are solely volunteer-run. Our primary mandate is to support and encourage humane treatment of companion animals. Whenever we can, we prefer to provide support to current guardians who are struggling to care for their companion animal(s), to improve the life of both guardian and companion animal. Support could come in the form of guidance, information sharing, referrals, and/or special financial assistance programs. If none of these options are viable, we help find new homes. Depending on our resources, we accept any animals needing a home, for whatever reason.
