Way up near the top of the globe lies Iqaluit, the city capital of the Canadian territory of Nunavut. This “city” only has about 7,000 people, however, and the Iqaluit Humane Society has a hard time finding homes for the over 25 dogs that it houses every month. Yet, it still manages to be the only no-kill shelter in the area.
Over the past few years, the rescue center has been receiving help from Canadian North Airlines, who would fly the dogs to the SPCA in Quebec for adoption. This year, however, the airline is stopping the service. Understandably, IHS is worried they might have to start euthanizing some of the dogs.
