BC SPCA raising money to care for injured boxer in Prince George

Dog was shot in the face

An open cruelty investigation is ongoing as the BC SPCA in Prince George is tending to a three-year-old dog they found wandering Blackwater Road with a gunshot wound.

Animal control officers provided a live trap as they wanted to help Luna after noticing her injuries, most notably missing half of her jaw.

The North Cariboo district branch successfully trapped the boxer after a week of waiting, and now she needs $3,230 to cover X-rays, surgery, medication, vaccines and follow up.

“Luna had been walking around for days with half of her jaw missing due to a gunshot wound. She immediately went in for emergency reconstructive surgery,” says SPCA district manager Alex Schare.

“Luna is a playful, young dog with a remarkable amount of energy despite her injuries and weakened state.”

The dog is recovering in a foster home.
