Ontario SPCA Seeks to Locate Puppies Sold from Duffle Bag in Thunder Bay

Public Assistance Sought

THUNDER BAY – NEWS – The Ontario Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals received a concern regarding a man allegedly selling an unknown number of bulldog-type puppies from a duffle bag on Vickers Street North around October 29, 2018.

The Ontario SPCA is trying to locate the puppies, which may be in need of medical attention as a result of being separated from their mother. The puppies were reportedly far too young to be taken from their mother.

“We urge anyone with any information that could assist us on this matter to come forward immediately as we are very concerned for the welfare of these puppies,” says Lynn Michaud, Senior Inspector, Ontario SPCA. “If you purchased one of these puppies, we’d like to hear from you so we can try to determine the identity of this man.”

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the puppies or the individual involved is asked to call the Ontario SPCA’s province-wide animal cruelty hotline at 310-SPCA (7722), or Crime Stoppers a 1-800-222-8477. All calls are confidential.
