Following an Alberta SPCA seizure from a home in Lethbridge, the Calgary Humane Society has taken in 88 dogs to help with their rehabilitation and adoption.

The dogs were voluntarily surrendered to Alberta SPCA by the Lethbridge owner, and many them require extensive medical care and are being treated by CHS veterinarians and animal health staff.

Most of the dogs are also very fearful and therefore require extra support in order to feel comfortable in their new environment.

“Once these dogs have been assessed, receive medical treatment and have been spayed or neutered, they will be made available for adoption,” said Calgary Humane Society in a release.

Right now, Calgary Humane is asking for monetary donations, saying they do not require any additional food or supplies for the care of these dogs. You can donate by calling 403-723-6000 or online where a special “Lethbridge Dogs Fund” has been set up

The dogs are mostly chihuahua or yorkie breeds and range in age from as young as eight weeks to seniors. The investigation by the Alberta SPCA is ongoing and no charges have been laid at this time.
