The 17 husky puppies who were surrendered to the BC SPCA have been named and most are ready to be adopted.

“Their names were chosen from suggestions submitted by the public, which identified two themes: Northern and Norse Gods. The public voted for their favourite theme in an online poll and Northern was the clear winner,” reads the SPCA release.

”Most of the puppies are now ready for adoption. The smallest puppy, Uki, has some medical concerns and will require more time in care. Staff remain hopeful that he will live up to his new name, which is an Inuktitut (Inuit) word meaning ‘survivor.’”

These puppies, who had been living outside without adequate shelter on property in the Interior, came into care on Christmas Eve and have their whole lives ahead of them.

The puppies will be available from two SPCA branches and potential adopters will be required to travel to meet them in person to ensure that it will be a great match for everyone.
