First nations Domestic Animals
About Our Involvement
Berkeley’s Place respectfully acknowledges that we are located on Treaty 6 territory, a traditional gathering place for diverse Indigenous peoples including the Cree, Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Iroquois, Dene, Ojibway/ Saulteaux/Anishinaabe, Inuit, and many others whose histories, languages, and cultures continue to influence our vibrant community.
Berkeley’s Place currently works alongside liaisons in three First Nation Communities and strives to share information through mutual alliance and respect.
Berkeley’s Place fully understands that we are welcomed guests on these lands, and we honour the opinions, teachings and traditions of community members.
Berkeley’s Place believes that by creating a partnership with Indigenous communities, we can assist in developing solutions to the high population of stray and wild domestic animals found on First Nation lands.
Our team works with and listens to the critical issues, and concerns community members have surrounding animals on First Nation lands, and together, we find solutions that benefit everyone.
When working with these valued communities, our goal is to keep families and their companion animals together through a variety of programming, and we will never remove an animal without authorization.
