Saskatchewan SPCA In Need Of Donations

Saskatchewan SPCA In Need Of DonationsNearly one-third of the 82 dogs and puppies held in early June from a breeder in Leslie have found new abode, says Saskatchewan SPCA. And others have their names enlisted in the waiting list, the ones who are interested in adopting the remaining animals.

Being the largest and the most pricey dog seizure ever embarked on by the Saskatchewan SPCA and Frances Wach, the cost to salvage and care for these dogs exceeded $45,000, said the executive Director.

That number included $24,000 for abduction costs; $1,500 for health check care; $7,500 for food; and more than $10,000 in official fees.

Wach said that urgent financial support was required for the care-taking of these dogs and many more dogs to come by the public, as the SPCA was a cataloged charitable organization and not a Government agency.

Although, a large sum of $16,000 had been received in donations by the Saskatoon SPCA, but an additional $30,000 was required to cover the entire cost of liberation and caring for these dogs.

Wach also said that the SPCA was thankful for the help that it has received so far, which incorporated money, food and backing in the care and sprucing of the dogs.
