The 28 dogs seized from a property in Bulyea will be up for adoption soon.

The huskies were rescued on Thursday, May 12, from a property north of Regina after the SPCA had received numerous complaints.

The dogs were being kept in a pen without water. 

The law says the owner could have gotten the dogs back, if he paid the seizure costs within three days. 

The penalties would have cost the owner nearly $10,000, a price he opted out of paying.

Kayley Pugh with the SPCA says she finds it frustrating the dogs would even be allowed to return to the home.

“It is the law how it stands right now, we do have to work within that,” said Pugh adding that the dogs should be ready for new homes soon. 

“Other the next couple of weeks they’ll be doing assessments, spay and neutering. Then hopefully in the near future they will all be up for adoption,” said Pugh.

The Saskatoon SPCA has 23 of the dogs, two of which are puppies. The Regina Humane Society shelter has the other five. 

Adoption applications are being accepted in Saskatoon and Regina

When authorities found the dogs one of them was so malnourished it had to be put down immediately. 

All the other dogs are undergoing tests from veterinarians. 

The Saskatoon SPCA hopes that the dogs will be ready to go to new homes as early as next week. 

They are already accepting applications from people who wish to adopt one of the animals.
