The BC SPCA is asking for the public’s help to find the owner who abandoned a mother dog and her puppies at a garbage dump.

According to the BC SPCA, a good Samaritan found the mother dog and her puppies, who has been named Casey by staff.


She was found inside a sealed box with her nine puppies at the Puntzi Lake Landfill. This garbage dump is located in the Central Interior.

“There is no excuse for simply walking away from a pet and leaving them to die,” says Lorie Chortyk, the SPCA’s general manager of communications.

“Abandoning animals is against the law and individuals can be prosecuted for their crime”.

A timid, but sweet dog, Casey is believed to be a border collie, husky mix.

If you can make any donation, please call call 250-992-7722 or visit the branch at 1000 Carson Pit Road.
