Animal Rescue's & SPCA's who aim to provide protection & care of stray, neglected, abused & abandoned animals is not sufficiently funded by the Federal, Provincial or Territorial Governments. Ten thousand dollars a year is not an adequate amount to provide basic needs such as food. When you have a population that can not support the fundraising required to provide adequate care for animals you set this system set up to fail. There is absolutely no reason Government is unable to provide the Volunteers that run these Animal Rescue Organizations the funding they require to function at a reasonable level.
When those without the means to do for themselves are left to fend for themselves it becomes a desperate situation that can be averted with adequate support & funding. It is not an issue of what can you do but the moral obligation & expectation of what will you do. The overpopulation issues are manageable in time but Animal Rescues in Northern Canada need a fighting chance to get up on their feet, to get a firm handle on the specific needs of their Communities in Regards to Animal overpopulation. In such a vast territory, Northern Communities will always be plagued with an over abundance of animals in need, it is the responsibility of the Canadian Government to enable them with the resources to cope in their Humanitarian Efforts.
