There's Only 1 Humane Society In The Whole Of Nunavut & It's About To Be Destroyed

The animals could be put down if the charity can't find a new space. 🥺

A considerable number of animals may have to find a new home if the Iqaluit Humane Society can’t raise a whopping $1 million.

Located in Iqaluit, this humane society is the only of its kind in the whole territory of Nunavut.

However, there’s a chance that it may not be around for much longer.

According to the organization’s new funding page, the city-owned building they work from will be demolished in spring or summer next year.

This means we will need to find a new home or our organization will cease to exist.

The Iqaluit Humane Society

In an attempt to start fresh, they’re trying to raise $1 million.

With the money, the humane society wants to build a “proper shelter” that encompasses more space and better accommodations.

The current base, which CTV News says houses as many as 23 dogs, is the size of a bachelor apartment. 

If they can’t raise the cash, the fate of the region’s animals could be pretty grim.

The organization’s leaders worry that without the humane society on-hand, officials in the area will have no choice but to euthanize homeless creatures.

In the 20 years since the Iqaluit Humane Society was set up, over 10,000 Nunavut animals have been rescued.
