BCSPCA looking for help caring for 17 rescued husky puppies

The BC SPCA has rescued 17 husky puppies from a dangerous situation in the B.C. Interior and needs help caring for them and finding them homes. 

The SPCA said they investigated a complaint that led to the discovery of the dogs living outside and in the cold and snow on the property from somewhere in the B.C. Interior. The owner surrendered the dogs on Christmas Eve. Neither their current nor former location are being disclosed "for their protection" according to a SPCA release today, Dec. 27.

“It’s a true Christmas miracle that these puppies were saved from neglect and brought in from the cold,” says BC SPCA chief prevention and enforcement officer Marcie Moriarty. “We are grateful that the RCMP and animal control officers were able to get them immediate attention.”

The pups are getting care and are in quarantine and will be spayed or neutered before they are available for adoption in late January. 

“The branch is completely overwhelmed with caring for so many animals and is not accepting adoption inquiries at this time,” says Moriarty. “Donations are encouraged to help cover their costs of caring for these puppies and adult dogs during the busy holiday period.”

The SPCA is also holding a naming contest for the puppies. Watch the SPCA Facebook page for more details.
