Ontario SPCA Seeks Public’s Assistance in Finding the Individual Responsible for dropping Three Puppies at Branch in Cornwall
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - CORNWALL, ON (October 23, 2014) – The Ontario SPCA is appealing to the public to help find the individual who left three puppies at the Ontario SPCA Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry Branch.
A video camera at the Branch captured someone dropping two border collie-type puppies and one terrier-mix puppy over a seven foot fence which resulted in the puppies landing on gravel.
The incident took place at 10:00 p.m. on the night of Tuesday, October 21, 2014.
“Abandoning a pet is never the right answer,” says Steve Toy, Senior Inspector. “Please call your local Ontario SPCA Community to make an appointment to have your pet surrendered, should the need arise.”
The puppies are currently doing well and receiving the care they require.
Anyone with information on who might have left these puppies at the shelter is asked to call 310-SPCA immediately.
