Big news these past few weeks!
I’ll tell you this: In my four years of working there, we had the OSPCA come in a few times. People complain, and that’s normal.
Last visit I was privy to at work, the OSPCA officer did not set foot between the rows when he spoke to the owner. Even then, we tried to hide the very sick dogs. The officer did not speak to me or my coworkers.
Months after I no longer worked there, when I started being brave enough to tell someone official, I did call the OSPCA. Mind you, I did not think they would do anything. Even with the information I had given, as someone who had been one of the primary kennel workers, to the person on the other end of the line assured me that a lot of what I had said was legal.
Here’s what you can do today:
