About Us

Northern Radiant Volunteers for Animals – or NRV Animal Shelters – is a website dedicated to bringing you all you need to know about your pets. 

NRV Animal Shelters

Are you thinking of buying a new dog or cat? Why not adopt instead! Every year millions of animals are euthanized due to overcrowding in shelters and not enough homes. In many cases they are perfect companion animals, and many are pure bred. 

It happens too often when people see a breed that looks good, or see a well trained animal in a movie and think “that’s the perfect companion for me”. But they never look into the mentality or needs of the animal itself. Once they discover that the personality of the animal does not fit their lifestyle, the animal is sent to the pound. When you take an animal to the pound, you could very well be killing that animal.

Without researching the correct way to care for your pets and how compatible they are to your lifestyle, you could be getting into more than you bargained for. Therefore, we are here to provide you with all the necessary resources and tips for your furry friends, so that all pets can live the happy life they deserve.
