Global News published this video item, entitled “‘He thought he had 20 to 30 dogs’: the story behind 119 dogs being surrendered to BC SPCA” – below is their description.

The 119 small dogs surrendered to the BC SPCA near Fort Nelson on March 12 are now receiving round-the-clock care at various locations throughout the province.

The mix-breed dogs included Terriers, Shih Tzus, Papillions and other small-breed crosses. Although none were emaciated, the BC SPCA confirmed, most had medical issues that needed immediate attention.

Eileen Drever, senior protection officer and stakeholders relations for the BC SPCA told Global News Monday they initially received a call from the RCMP in the area expressing concern about the number of dogs on the property.

The owner then spoke to a cruelty investigations officer with the BC SPCA, and said he would be willing to surrender the dogs to the organization, Drever confirmed.

Drever said the investigating officer was shocked when they had been handed 45 dogs and there were still many more to come.
