Polling Places

The CRST Wakpa Waste Animal Shelter

Is now offering support to self-rehome a pet. Self-rehoming is more humane for pets, and gives peace of mind to the a pet’s family who can select—and even stay in touch with—their pet’s new family. It also helps the animals in the WWAS, who will have more much-needed space and resources to find permanent homes.


To help you promote your pet WWAS will share information and the animal’s photo on their Facebook page with your contact phone number. Simply send us a message via Facebook Messenger and we’ll add it to our Facebook page. Or visit for other options. Owner surrender is also available through the shelter but space is limited to the number of kennels and transport spots we have available each week.
