On November 20th, 2008 a SPCA worker was out to the place where I have permission to keep my animals horses and dogs. We where not there at the time of them coming. We went up to pick up the 16 puppies that we take out there so that they can run and play with each other.
Upon arriving we saw the SPCA notice's that said to please contact them with in 24 hours to prevent further action. We went and checked on our horses. Then as we made our way over to where we keep the pups during the day we noticed that it was very quiet. When we opened the door to where they stay inside was completely empty. We house the puppies during the day in a very large box stall that lets them have enough room to run and play but keeps them dry and safe.
After looking for them everywhere we went to use the phone and contact the SPCA. While talking to W. Eyford at the SPCA she claims she never removing any puppies or entered any of the horse corrals.
We filed a stolen dog report with the Quesnel RCMP and SPCA. While looking on the internet thorough SPCA dogs on November 24, 2008 we came across our 16 stolen puppies in the Victoria SPCA.
The following morning we contacted the RCMP. The Victoria SPCA has contacted us and claims that these are not our puppies but we have pictures of all of these guys in our house and with us. Beware when Adopting from your local shelter as you may be adopting a stolen dog or puppy. Also do not adopt any of the 3 male Border Collie puppies or Lab cross puppies as you will only be caring and loving a dog that you may end up losing in the end as this matter is going to court.
