It’s been a demanding week for employees at the Saskatoon SPCA.
Last week, 40 of the 70 seized dogs from a farm near Riceton, southeast of Regina, were brought into Saskatoon’s location.
Spokesperson Cathy Brin says the seizure is one of the largest in Saskatoon SPCA history, meaning a lot of work for employees.
Brin says many of the dogs had fleas, needed to be spayed and neutered, and were fearful of people when they arrived.
The other dogs were taken in by the Regina Humane Society and the Prince Albert SPCA, and a couple of dogs from the Saskatoon SPCA were transferred to two Alberta groups to lessen the load.
