The SPCA received a call from the public about a puppy that was allegedly being abused by its owner and was being taken to an animal hospital. Following this, Animal Protection officers went to the hospital and brought Kiki to the SPCA.

The veterinarian who examined Kiki found a bandage tied tightly around one of her rear legs resulting in a large open skin infection. The infection had spread to her back and legs.

X-rays also showed Kiki had a number of older fractures to her ribs.

“Kiki is in unbelievable pain. Her entire back and legs have had all the skin removed due to the infection. Kiki’s skin has literally rotted off of her and she has fractured ribs,” says Vancouver SPCA branch manager Jodi Dunlop.

“Kiki has an amazing personality. She has suffered cruelty at the hands of humans and deserves a pain-free happy life.”

Animal Protection Officers will be recommending charges to Crown counsel.

Kiki’s medical costs are estimated to be around $6,000 and she will be in SPCA care for up to two months recovering from her injuries.
