Shelter dogs

National poll finds 43 per cent of Canadians buy dogs from breeders, and most don’t know how many homeless dogs we’ve got.

The largest proportion of the poll’s 1,008 telephone respondents — 11 per cent — put the number of unwanted dogs brought to shelters in Canada every year at 10,000.

According to the survey’s statistics, the actual number of dogs admitted to shelters annually is over three times that, at more than 36,000. Many of these animals are destroyed when homes cannot be found for them.
