Langley pet seizures for temporary closure of SPCA facility in Chilliwack

Langley animal seizures are having an impact in several communities.

  • Mar. 17, 2016 6:00 a.m.

The Chilliwack SPCA is closed to the public as staff deal with recent animal seizures.

In the wake of two recent seizures of animals from a Langley puppy mill and a Cloverdale breeder/boarder, BC SPCA staff and volunteers continue to work around the clock to help the cats and dogs, many of whom were rescued from deplorable conditions.

As Vancouver BC SPCA staff and volunteers continue to accept and review hundreds of adoption applications for the dogs seized in Langley, the Chilliwack SPCA is taking 25 of the cats and kittens seized from the Surrey breeder/boarder, along with the 15 dogs from the same seizure who are already in their care.

Due to strict biosecurity measures, the Chilliwack BC SPCA Branch will be closed, according to branch manager Ivanna Ferris.

“Many of the dogs and cats came into BC SPCA care with ringworm, an extremely contagious skin disease, and in order to prevent it spreading to people and other animals, we have to temporarily limit access to the public,” Ferris said. “We will still help animals in distress, such as strays or injured animals, as much as we’re able.”
