Welcome to The Nova Scotia Pet Project.     If you do not live in beautiful Nova Scotia, you might still might enjoy your visit here.     Please remember that this site does not list every rescue or shelter in this province.     How did I decide who to list?    That answer is pretty darned simple.    When a family member or a friend or a neighbour asks me for recommendations, these are the ones I suggest.

Nova Scotia is extremely lucky to have the The Nova Scotia Lost Dog Network.     It is based on the simple concept that sharing on social media really can help lost dogs find their way back home.      Since its inception, people all around the province have helped hundreds of lost dogs find their way back home simply by clicking their mice and sharing on Facebook.

Why is that so wonderful?    Besides all the Happy Endings?    Every lost dog that finds his or her way back home is one less “stray” dog that will need a shelter or rescue slot!


“If only we can overcome cruelty, to human and animal, with love and compassion we shall stand at the threshold of a new era in human moral and spiritual evolution – and realize, at last, our most unique quality: humanity.” ~ Jane Goodall

Miss Priss

Miss Priss is a large adult cat who is available for adoption from The Lillian Allbon Animal Shelter.   For more information about this beauty, PLEASE CLICK HERE

Miss Priss is a beautiful three year old spayed diva.

Miss Priss does not like shelter life and she is very cranky. She was fostered for a short time (returned at no fault to her because of family issues) and she was good as gold.

We believe her attitude is shelter induced. If you can get past the initial hissing and see this lady for what she really is; a beautiful intelligent cat that just wants to be loved, then she may be the cat for you.

Miss Priss doesn’t seem to like other animals but that doesn’t mean she couldn’t adjust with time. And small children may get scratched if they are rough with her or make fast movements.

Miss Priss would do best in a home where she is the only pet and all the family attention is on her.
