BC SPCA animal protection officers have removed 12 small dogs in distress from a breeder on Vancouver Island. The dogs, including eight three-month-old puppies, were taken into BC SPCA custody due to lack of veterinary care. There were also concerns that these dogs had exposure to canine parvovirus, a highly contagious and potentially deadly virus.
BC SPCA officers visited the property yesterday in response to a complaint from the public. Thankfully, someone, just like me and you, was willing to speak up on behalf of animals in danger. Upon arrival at the property, officers found several causes for concern including: the suspected parvovirus, signs of a potential neurological problem, lameness (limping), severe dental disease, and both eye and ear infections.
The team rushed those in need of immediate attention to local veterinarians and staff worked into the evening yesterday to triage the remaining dogs at the BC SPCA Victoria branch. Giving these pups the care and love they need right now is our top priority. Will you join us in embracing these little ones and proving to them that there are still people who care?
Your gift will not only assist the ongoing care and treatment of these sweet souls, but also support the continuing investigation into their case. Tiny pups like this are only lifted out of dangerous situations because concerned animal-lovers like you act. All animal cruelty investigations in B.C. are 100% donor funded.
With the massive spike in demand for puppies during Covid-19 we worry that we'll start to see more exploitive puppy mills spring up. I know that these facts make you as angry as they make me, but there is something we can do. Your gift today keeps cruelty investigators at work ensuring a safer and more loving future for dogs like these.
