Year of the Northern Dog
The issue of Northern dog overpopulation is rapidly escalating across Canada.
A lack of basic animal welfare services has created an abundance of dogs in the North who need resources, support and ultimately families.
The Year of the Northern Dog is a program aimed at bringing awareness, attention and action to dog overpopulation.
Many barriers exist in the North that do not exist in the South. Everyone has a role to play to create a healthy community for dogs and people. Northern Indigenous, urban and rural communities need your support!
Thank you for your dedication
Thank you for your dedication to helping the animals. Every animal deserves a loving home and to be treated royally. Just imagine a day without animal cruelty. What a wonderful day that would be!
