PRESS RELEASE: Seeking information about 14 Beagle seizure

Posted on: Monday, July 27th, 2015

West Gore (July 22, 2015) – The NS SPCA Cruelty Investigations team responded to call to a property in West Gore, NS.  As a result, 14 beagles including 7 puppies were seized from the property.  Unfortunately our investigations team has been unable to locate the owner(s) of these dogs. We are calling out for assistance from the public, to help our officers retrieve information or the whereabouts of the owner(s).

All 14 beagles, including a mother and 7 new born puppies were transported to the Dartmouth Shelter for medical evaluation and assessment – all appear to be in good condition.  Adult dogs are now up for adoption and can be visited at our shelter. Due to the age of the puppies they are not yet up for adoption, but will be available in the coming weeks.

If you have any information regarding a group of beagles kept on a remote property in West Gore, NS, Please contact our Provincial Cruelty Investigations team at 1 (888) 703-7722.

The NS SPCA thanks the public for its help. There are many animal cruelty cases each year and the NS SPCA relies heavily on the public to be the eyes, ears and voice of animals in need.
