The BC SPCA in Prince George is searching for four missing dogs, after an overnight break-in. “When staff arrived at the shelter this morning they discovered that someone had broken into the shelter and let all the dogs in one area of the building out,” says Jamey Blair, BC SPCA senior manager for the North Cariboo region. “Two dogs have been found, one remained at our location, and four are still missing.”  Two dogs in another area of the shelter were not released.

She says two of the missing dogs were being held at the shelter as part of the SPCA’s animal control contract with the city. “We suspect that the break-in was related to these two dogs, but this has not been confirmed,” says Blair.

The two SPCA dogs still missing are a Rottweiler mix and a Great Pyrenees mix. “If anyone sees these dogs, we ask them to please contact the Prince George SPCA at 250-562-5511 right away with their location. We want to get them safely back to the shelter as soon as possible.”
