The BC SPCA says it will be recommending charges following the seizure of 66 dogs from a Langley puppy mill last week.
Investigators say the animals’ suffering was “inconceivable.”
The dogs were emaciated, malnourished, infected and traumatized.
The mill bred designer pets, including poodles, Burnese Mountain dogs and old English Sheep dogs.
The society’s Marcie Moriarty says at least two people are facing animal cruelty charges.
“We most certainly recommending the book be thrown at these people and lifetime bans.”
She says investigators acted on a tip from the public, which lead to a search warrant, executed last week.
The Vancouver shelter is asking for donations of blankets, towels and dog beds to help keep the animals comfortable. They can be dropped off at the shelter at 1205 East 7 Ave.
