Dog problem

Group provides free sterilization to remote communities.

“What we’re seeing is a group of animals that have a place in the community but unfortunately without sterilization or population control, it gets out of hand,” Dr. Lesley Sheppard, a Regina veterinarian, told CBC News in an interview.

Sheppard is one of the people behind Remote Area Veterinary Services, which relies on donations to pay for trips to Saskatchewan’s north.

Sheppard says the problem of animal control is apparent as soon as she arrives.

“When you get out of your car, you’ll have four or five dogs come up to your car and start sniffing you,” Sheppard recalls from one trip. “And there are dogs everywhere. If you stand and look, you could probably see 20 to 30 dogs at any one time.”
