The last of 17 husky puppies rescued by the SPCA now adopted

Last husky finds family

The last of 17 husky puppies surrendered to the SPCA from an Interior B.C. property has now been adopted. 

Named “Uki,” or “survivor” in Inuktitut, the puppy was the weakest of the bunch but will make a full recovery. 

Uki’s new family surprised their eldest son, who has been asking for a puppy for years. They dropped by the Penticton SPCA, telling him they were checking “just in case” if there was a dog available. 

The surprise was caught on camera.

The BC SPCA received over 1,200 adoption applications for the puppies, who found homes in the Okanagan, Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, Northern B.C. and Banff, Alberta.

They were surrendered from an undisclosed Interior B.C. property after SPCA investigators, RCMP and bylaw officers attended in response to a complaint. 

Nineteen dogs, including the 17 eight- to 10-week-old husky puppies, their mom, and a 13-year-old senior husky, living outside in the snow at the property. They were found shivering, lethargic and "riddled with parasites."

The owner gave up the dogs to animal control, and they were turned over to SPCA branches in Vernon and Penticton to allow them to recover prior to adoption.
