Two Saskatchewan Men Convicted of Causing Distress to Animals in Dog Hoarding Case

Two men from the Fort Qu’Appelle area of Saskatchewan have been found guilty of causing distress to animals in a dog hoarding case under the province’s Animal Protection Act 2018. When officials from Animal Protection Services of Saskatchewan investigated the men’s home in 2021, they found a total of forty-eight dogs living in unsanitary conditions with urine and feces on the floors and walls. One dead dog and one dead puppy were also found outside of the men’s home, and a third dog had to be euthanized because of significant health issues. Sentencing for both men was scheduled to begin on February 6th at Saskatchewan Provincial Court in Fort Qu’Appelle.
