Border Paws being investigated by Alberta SPCA for possible animal abuse

The Border Paws Animal Shelter is under investigation by the Alberta SPCA for possible animal abuse.

There is also concern for staff who may have been terminated for calling attention to the perceived situation at the animal shelter.

The owner of Groomer Has It in Lloydminster is expressing concern for the situation. Dana Crawford says she is disillusioned with what has happened, and is withholding further financial support for the shelter, but will support the animals’ welfare in other ways. She is calling for the board of directors to be “overhauled” and for the community to go visit the shelter and spend time with the animals.

The provincial SPCA is not sharing details of the investigation, but posts on its website detail some of its new challenges and responsibilities including the Alberta Alert Line to report an animal in distress. It is also noted that animals are staying longer in the care of the provincial animal advocate.
