VANCOUVER -- The B.C. SPCA has seized 70 animals from a breeding and boarding facility in Surrey, B.C.
Spokeswoman Lorie Chortyk says 56 cats, 12 dogs and two puppies were taken from the property Tuesday after a vet deemed they were all in distress.
The cats are Persians and short-haired exotics, while the dogs include four French bulldogs, a poodle, a Pomeranian and the Pomeranian's two puppies.
Chortyk says the animals will be examined by SPCA staff to determine the extent of their injuries.
The seizure comes after the animal welfare agency took 66 dogs from a Langley puppy mill last week.
Chortyk says those dogs are doing great, but require further treatment before they can be adopted.
