Many remote northern communities in Canada have no access to veterinary services, leading to large, unmanaged street dog populations. Dogs are malnourished, ill, unsterilized, and struggle through or perish in our Canadian winters. Without available alternatives, many of these communities have resorted to mass dog culls to control their street dog populations.
Various organizations are working to reduce the number of homeless dogs in northern Canadian communities though various solutions such as veterinary services, education, delivery of supplies and food, animal transport, long term dog population management, and more. These organizations include (but are not limited to):
Friends of Humane Society International, International Fund for Animal Welfare, Ontario SPCA and Humane Society, Manitoba Animal Alliance, Cat Lake Friends of Animush, Canine Action Project, Canadian Animal Task Force, Save a Dog Network Canada, Northern Reach Rescue Network, and the Winnipeg Humane Society.
