Black Lake Dog Project

  • Location
    Black Lake, Saskatchewan
  • Status
  • Project created by BLDP

The Problem

The Black Lake Dog Project is to inspire indigenous youth to create a sustainable dog population management program in their community. The youth in this community have had to endure the possibility of their dogs being culled by means of shooting to help manage the dog population issues that are present in their community. With no vet services available to the community, the health and safety of people are affected by the over population of dogs. The Dog Project has been created along with a team of youth to help elevate the dog population, health and welfare of both people and animals in their community.

Our Plan

The Dog Project Team has already taken action with the help of One Health Dog. A door to door dog demographics has recently occurred in their community. The Dog Project Team quantified the number of dogs in the community. Number of males, females. vaccination and reproductive status. Pictures of each dog, GPS location of where the dogs live and owner information has been entered into a data base.
