OSPCA seeks info on new­born pups

Ottawa Citizen - - CITY+REGION -

Fear­ing for their safety, the On­tario SPCA is seek­ing four boxer-mix pup­pies that were al­legedly sold on­line by a Corn­wall woman while they were just days old. Four other pup­pies from the same lit­ter have been found and the so­ci­ety asks that any­one with in­for­ma­tion to come for­ward im­me­di­ately, not­ing “we are very con­cerned for the wel­fare of th­ese pup­pies.” “If you pur­chased one of th­ese pup­pies, we’d like to hear from you so we can en­sure all of the pup­pies have been ac­counted for and are re­ceiv­ing the care re­quired,” said se­nior in­spec­tor Bon­nie Bishop. The OSPCA al­leges that the pup­pies were taken from their mother on Nov. 3 when they were three days old and ad­ver­tised for sale on­line. The Corn­wall woman is charged with two counts of caus­ing dis­tress, fail­ing to pro­vide ad­e­quate and ap­pro­pri­ate care and ob­struct­ing an of­fi­cer in per­form­ing their du­ties. She ap­pears in Pro­vin­cial Of­fences Court in Corn­wall Nov. 20.
