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 or in person at 637 114th Ave., Dawson Creek.
