South Peace SPCA staff hope animal lovers can help sweet Lacey

March 1, 2017

A curious pup at the South Peace SPCA has learned, the hard way, that exploring her environment can result in being burned.

Lacey, a four-month-old German shepherd-husky mix, got into something she shouldn’t have and came into BC SPCA care with caustic chemical burns – inside and out – because she ingested toxic substances.

“During her X-rays, it was discovered that she also had a torn cruciate ligament in her right hind knee, so the poor girl was in a lot of pain,” says BC SPCA South Peace Branch manager Wendy Davies, noting that without treatment, Lacey could become lame.

“Lacey is such a sweet girl! She’s a playful, smart and affectionate puppy who will be available for adoption once she is fully recovered.”

The medical costs associated with Lacey’s care are expected to exceed $6,000. A non-profit organization, the BC SPCA relies primarily on donations from the public to help the province’s most vulnerable animals.

“We just want Lacey to have the chance to live a long, happy and active life in a loving home, especially after a bit of a rough start in her life,” Davies says.

If you can help Lacey and other animals like her in need at the South Peace SPCA, you can donate online at spca.bc.ca/medicalemergency or in person at 637 114th Ave., Dawson Creek.
