Ontario SPCA seeks public’s help to find remains of dog in Pembroke


Pembroke, ON (June 27, 2016) – The Ontario SPCA is seeking information from the public as it searches for the remains of a dog that died in Pembroke between June 13-15, 2016.

On June 20, 2016 the Ontario SPCA dispatch received information from a witness who alleges that a man had placed an elastic band around the testicles of a dog and a cone on the dog’s head in an attempt to neuter the animal. Unfortunately, the dog died as a result of those actions sometime between Monday and Wednesday of last week. The owner of the dog has denied any involvement in the dog’s death and it is believed someone assisted with the disposal of the dog’s remains.

The Ontario SPCA is asking witnesses or anyone who may have any information about the dog or the disposal of its remains to contact 310-SPCA immediately.  The dog is described as a small brown “Chi-weini” Chihuahua and Dachshund mix and lived in the Mary Street area.
