Dog problem

Quebec has one.

Since May 2008, Companion Animal Adoption Centres have shipped as many as 436 dogs to Ontario, said Tasse.

The surplus might be because of the economy, she said. Shelters are receiving more dogs requiring minor surgeries or medicines, often because owners can’t afford it.

“You have 9 or 10 months of unemployment (insurance), maybe that unemployment has run out and they have some hard decisions to do,” said Tasse.

Further, some adoption centres are facing stiffer competition from puppy mills selling dogs on the Internet.
