The Ontario SPCA (Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) executed 16 warrants this morning following an investigation into multiple animal cruelty complaints. Onsite investigations resulted in orders being issued related to animal housing and some medical treatment involving ears, eyes, teeth and skin. The owners are working together with the Ontario SPCA to ensure optimal care standards are met and maintained. Ontario SPCA will follow up accordingly to ensure all compliance requirements are met. No charges have been laid at this time.
Ontario SPCA is obligated to address all animal cruelty complaints and there is a formal investigation process. As one of the largest, most responsive animal welfare organizations in the country, we provide care and shelter for tens of thousands of animals and respond to thousands of animal cruelty complaints each year.
