Advocates for companion animals across NW British Columbia
NORTHERN ANIMAL RESCUE ALLIANCE
Based in Terrace, British Columbia, NARA strives to improve the lives of companion animals.
The catchment area is huge - approximately 41000 km² (10 million acres).
WHO WE ARE
We are a volunteer and foster based animal rescue, made possible by community support and donations, fundraising, events and bottle drives.
We rescue and care for abandoned, injured, neglected and abused companion animals.
We are advocates for abused, injured, neglected and abandoned dogs and cats in the community of Terrace and surrounding area.
Our mission is to provide a better life for all animals that come into our care, whether that means providing rescue placement, short-term care and responsible rehoming, veterinary attention, rehabilitation for illness and injury or providing sanctuary for the old and un-adoptable. Contact us to learn more and get involved.

Doug was found fending for himself under a remote cabin. Unsocialized and neglected he has made great progress and seeks a quiet child free home, ideally with a guy who he will bond closely to.
Petal came to us in June, apparently abandoned by her people. She had already been spayed, which is unusual. She has no microchip or tattoo. Initially a bit shy with people once she knows you she is very affectionate. It takes her slightly longer to warm to men but then she's a real "daddy's girl' . She'd probably prefer a quieter home but with a bit of time and understanding would adapt to family life. She's had her vaccinations, preventative flea treatment and a broad spectrum wormer. Contact us for more information.
Viper arrived in March 2018 weighing 44lbs. As a large dog his condition was appalling. He was starving, his coat was filthy and his nails were so long they were crossed over each other. It's taken a long time to nurse him back to full health. He's had blood tests and antibiotics, special diets and probiotics. He now weighs just over 62lbs.
We are being very careful where Viper goes, he still remembers being starved and has 'food obsession' which can be managed, but takes understanding. He's neutered, vaccinated including Bordetella and rabies, up to date with parasite control. His ideal home would be with lots of room to run and play, with adults only, although he is great with older kids.
