SPCA seizes 20 distressed animals from BC property

The BC SPCA stepped in and took action on Sunday after receiving a report that animals were in distress at a Langley property.

When the SPCA arrived on site, they found nine dogs, five birds, three cats, two rabbits and a pig that were all in need of assistance.

All 20 animals were seized since they all met the definition of distress under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.

“There were concerns in the complaint about dogs being crated for long periods of time, and with one exception, the dogs were crated without access to water when our officers arrived,” said Marcie Moriarty from the SPCA.

“We are currently completing veterinary assessments with regard to the animals’ medical issues.”

Once the animals are further assessed, information regarding their availability for adoptions will likely be released.

The dogs seized were two Maltese, one Rottweiler, one Labrador retriever, one border collie, one boxer, one collie mix, one poodle and one pitbull.
