Abused but ‘adorable’ dogs up for adoption
The Edmonton Humane Society has taken in four dogs recently involved in an animal seizure from Saskatchewan.
Two Siberian Huskies and two Alaskan Malamutes were brought to the Edmonton Humane Society on Sunday from the Saskatoon SPCA.
They are part of a group of 82 dogs that were living in poor conditions and removed from an acreage east of Saskatoon on June 4.
“About 80 dogs were removed from an acreage. It was alleged they were living in just deplorable conditions without adequate food, water, many of them with matted fur and quite sick,” said Shawna Randolph, spokeswoman with the Edmonton Humane Society.
“They (Saskatoon SPCA) were in a situation where they had far too many dogs to care for,” Randolph said.
Two-year-olds Polar, Bandit, and Bridgit and seven-month- old MJ are now at the Edmonton Humane Society.
Polar, an Alaskan Malamute, and Bandit, a Siberian Husky Collie, were put up for adoption on Wednesday, while MJ and Bridgit still need to be checked and cleared for adoption.
“They’re just adorable dogs,” Randolph said.
MJ and Bridgit are expected to be cleared for adoption by the end of the week.
