I know. And that is so sad.

[QUOTE=Chris21711;900308]Buddingartist, I don't know where you live, but I don't understand why the spca would not investigate....the so called "big fish" that they receive calls on are so few and far between, most of their calls in this area are the "small fish"......That being said in this Province any establishment selling animals is open for inspection rights.

If people in general when they go to a BYB to purchase an animal and notice that the conditions are not kosher they SHOULD report it with no hesitation whatsoever......this will help close BYB's, once they have an eye on them, that eye remains there.

As I knew I SHOULD I did just that and the <evidence and targetting bigger ones< is the answer I received. We were living in Toronto and used a Toronto vet when we got our babies.

I think using the vet avenue makes a lot of sense. Our vet confirmed that our little guy was about 1 to 2 weeks from dying of malnutrition aggravated by the untreated mange. They thought we had lost our mind when they evaluated our dogs and we told him we didn't want show dogs, we just wanted to save 2 and help them throgh with their health problems such as hip displasia, heart murmur, hairline hip fracture, respitory problems, anal sac problems, mange, undernourished.

Maybe you are right and she is now out of business. That would be my wish

So just to put a bit of a spin on this... what do you call someone who calls themselves a "rescue" but all of the animals that end up being rescued are then being bred by the "rescuer"? These include dogs, pot bellied pigs, horses, etc. The reasoning behind it.. gotta make some money back on them. IMO that is a BYB in capital letters. Interesting way of looking at rescuing, isn't it?

Just an assumption on my part....since you were living in Toronto at the time, the call would have been made to the Toronto Humane Society, up until June of last year their Agents covered Toronto...am I right?

I think using the vet avenue makes a lot of sense. Our vet confirmed that our little guy was about 1 to 2 weeks from dying of malnutrition aggravated by the untreated mange.

Under the new laws that were enacted last year, a Vet is obliged to report any suspected abuse cases.....hopefully, slow but surely we are moving in the right direction.

Maybe you are right and she is now out of business. That would be my wish
My wish too Buddingartist and I only wish the best for your two little guys

That's not rescueing - that's perverting the perception of a rescue to further your own personal agenda. IMO that's even worse than a byb. I can call myself the Queen of England too - doesn't mean I have any legitimate claim to the title.
