The Humane Society Dawson (HSD) is an animal shelter located in Canada’s Yukon Territory.

Founded in 1995, the HSD is a registered charitable organization that relies heavily on donations, fundraising, memberships, animal boarding/surrender/adoption fees, and government grants to help keep the shelter running.

The HSD is dedicated to providing shelter and care for abandoned and surrendered animals. We also educate and raise awareness throughout our community for responsible pet ownership, and steadily work to prevent cruelty to animals.

The HSD is a small shelter with a big heart!

An average of 50 abandoned or surrendered animals pass through our doors each year. With continuous dedication, we are able to find permanent homes for most of these animals, and foster homes for the rest.

The HSD welcomes any volunteer help that we can get, whether it’s for the feed & care of animals, dog walking or assisting us with fundraising events. All help that we can get from the public to assist the HSD in raising awareness is greatly appreciated.
