Montreal – According to a press release given out by The Montreal SPCA, there are 11 dogs and 77 cats that are safe and on their road towards a happy life. The Montreal SPCA conducted two important rescues of animals that were the subject of cruelty investigations. The owners of the animals surrendered them in order to evade any charges on "alleged" animal cruelty.
The Montreal SPCA, obtained the custody of 11 Huskies from an owner on the Monteregie area. The dogs range from 1 to 11 years-old, and were used for recreational sled dog activities in the winter. The dogs spent part of their lives chained to dilapidated dog houses. The tips of their ears have been badly bitten by flies and the Montreal SPCA is providing care for these injuries. The dogs are said to be friendly, but they have never lived indoors and will require homes that can provide them with love, patience and exercise. The Huskies have all been evaluated: two are now available for adoption at the Montreal SPCA, three were entrusted to the Laurentides-Labelle SPCA and the remaining six dogs will eventually be available for adoption through the Montreal SPCA or one of the rescues they work with once they overcome their shyness. The Montreal SPCA is working on their socialization and leash walking skills and will be looking for fosters who are willing to work with them.
On Oct 3, 2013, 77 cats were rescued form a hoarding situation. A person who started with good intentions by caring for unwanted cats became quickly overwhelmed and decided to do the right thing by signing all the cats over to the Montreal SPCA. The Montreal SPCA is providing veterinary care and socialization. The cats will be available for adoption or foster after they are evaluated and treated.
