South Peace SPCA keeping busy

Cold weather brings more returns.

The Dawson Creek SPCA is seeing high numbers of cats at the shelter, as many abandoned felines are found in cooler weather. 

The local SPCA is seeing high volumes of animals coming in, with 26 cats recently over a one week period.

Many abandon their pets to the cold, while strays are all too common in Mile Zero, says Branch Manager Wendy Davies.
