• SPCA Rescues Underage Puppies at the Crossroads Carmel

    The SPCA for Monterey County is looking for people who purchased or took a puppy from a person at the Crossroads Carmel within the past few days in order to educate them about the puppies.

    The puppies are five week old pit bull mixes. The owner, a transient white male in his late 20’s with dark brown hair who frequents the area, was illegally selling puppies under eight weeks of age, which is too young to be away from their mother. He was also stating that they had been vaccinated when they have no history of vaccinations.
    SPCA Humane Officers attempted to reunite the remaining three puppies with their mother, but the owner was uncooperative. The puppies are now safe at the SPCA.
    The SPCA is seeking anyone who purchased or took a puppy from this individual in order to warn them that the puppies are very young and that the seller was untruthful, leaving the puppies at risk of contracting or spreading potentially deadly diseases.
    If you have any information about this case, or if you believe you have or know of one of these puppies, please contact The SPCA at 831-373-2631 or report online. All calls are completely confidential.
    It a misdemeanor in California for any person to sell puppies under eight weeks of age, unless previously approved in writing from a veterinarian licensed to practice in California. If you suspect someone of selling underage puppies, please contact the SPCA.
    To donate to help rescue animals like these puppies, please call the SPCA or donate online at www.SPCAmc.org.
