Port Elgin man charged in connection with abandoning puppies
An arrest has been made in Saugeen Shores after someone dumped a litter of newborn puppies around town Wednesday night.
Saugeen Shores Police received multiple calls about the pups Thursday morning that appeared to be scattered at different locations in Port Elgin.
A 36 year old local man has been charged with 8 counts of failing to provide care to the animals.
All of them, including the mama were taken in and are safe with a professional animal care agency.
Animal Welfare is also conducting a further investigation.
A GoFundMe page has been set up by a group of people who scoured the town looking for the pups.
After locating the mama dog, she continued to birth several more for a total of 13.
Donations are now being taken for the vet care they'll need and to fix the mama.
As of this morning it had raised more than $4,000.
