SPCA seizes 35 dogs from Lanaudière breeder


Montreal's SPCA took part in the rescue of 35 husky dogs from an animal breeder in the Lanaudière region earlier this week.

Anita Kapucinska with the SPCA says they acted on a tip that suggested the dogs were living in filthy conditions.

"They were just living in very unclean conditions that were not [consistent] with the regulations," she says.

She says the dogs had also lived most of their lives either chained outdoors or crated inside a house.

The dogs — who were being used for commercial breeding, sledding and guarding — are now in the custody of the Montreal SPCA, and getting proper veterinary care.
