Disposition: Alleged

Abuser names unreleased

A Vaughan pet store owner faces numerous counts of animal cruelty charges after 210 animals were seized by the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (OSPCA).

The pets, including dogs, cats, birds and reptiles, were living in harsh conditions and "required veterinary care".

OSPCA spokesperson Brad Dewar would not comment further on the specifics of the shop or the injuries suffered by the animals.

The owner was charged with five counts of animal cruelty July 31, only two weeks after the OPSCA executed a warrant July 19.

The organization is looking for homes for the pets.
