• SPCA Offers $1,000 Reward in Abandoned Puppy Case

    The SPCA for Monterey County is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who abandoned a tiny puppy in Chualar on Tuesday, October 29.

    The small eight week old black and white terrier mix was found abandoned in a box on Washington Street in Chualar around 8:15 in the morning. The property owner contacted the SPCA. SPCA Humane Officers responded to the scene to rescue the puppy and bring her back to the SPCA for veterinary treatment and care. 

    The puppy, who SPCA staff are calling Sally, is now safe at the SPCA. The SPCA gave her a veterinary exam and a warm bath and she is now enjoying clean water, fresh food, and cozy bedding.
