Alberta SPCA removes 201 dogs from southern Alberta property
On January 13, 2015, the Alberta SPCA completed the largest removal of dogs into protective custody in its history. In total, the Alberta SPCA removed 201 dogs from a property near Milk River, Alberta.
The removal happened in two stages. On December 23, 2014, the dog owner had voluntarily surrendered 60 dogs to the Alberta SPCA. During the second operation on January 13, 2015, five Alberta SPCA peace officers, a veterinarian and two members of the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society removed an additional 141 dogs from the property. The dogs were malnourished, dehydrated and lacking sufficient shelter from the winter conditions.
The Alberta SPCA has launched a special fundraising campaign to support its investigation of this case.
