    CANCELLED - CeleGREYtion

    The NSGA board has made the difficult decision to cancel/postpone this year's CeleGREYtion event.  

     Alberta is trending towards the high end of projections for new COVID infections, mostly due to the Delta variant, which is high transmissable even within double vaccinated people.  Large gatherings - both indoors and outdoors - are responsible for much of the spread we are seeing today.  As a result, the Alberta Government has asked all Albertans to limit their in person contacts wherever possible.  
     NSGA takes pride in our responsible stewardship of the dogs in our care, doing whatever is necessary to ensure their good health and happiness.  That stewardship extends to our families and with the current Covid situation in Alberta, we believe it is in everyone's best interest to cancel the event planned for September 11.  Please stay tuned for future events!

    Adoption outlook for 2021 and beyond

    NSGA is not currently accepting and NEW applications for adoption.

    With few dogs available to adoption groups, and options to transport still limited by COVID protocols, all applications submitted continue to be on HOLD, with little chance that we will have any dogs to place in these homes.

    All of our dogs have Pending Adoptions. Should anything change, we will post the available dog with criteria that must be met to adopt that dog, and instructions on how to apply for that particular dog.
