I just read an article in the Globe & Mail today about how rural communities that are too far from veterinarians and other resources (i.e. more than a day) often shoot "problem" dogs. Like an execution by firing squad.  Just recently 36 dogs were scheduled for a dog shoot in a remote community near James Bay in northern Quebec.  In this instance, fortunately, the International Fund for Animal Welfare rescued the dogs and is working on re-homing them. 

Here is a link to the story:  http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/dogs-rescued-from-jame...

Another article on the same group of dogs:  http://www.pawnation.com/2010/07/28/condemned-canines-saved-from-ca...

I had no idea!

How horrible. I think I have seen this also occur in the rural South. Sad!
Sad is not strong enough. I'm so disgusted about this situation in my own country. Can they have mobile clinic that can go to neutered/spay those dogs so they could be good pets.
