The SPCA in goose bay DOES NOT put down animals because they run out of room, sorry if that's "not your understanding". Not all spca's are "no kill" (meaning that no animal that is physically and emotionally healthy enough to be rehomed is put down, not that they refuse to euthanize suffering animals), but this one is. When the shelter runs out of room (as it always is) the animals go out to foster homes.
