Alleged: Shelley Lisk
Shelley Lisk of Pembroke was charged by the Ontario SPCA under the Criminal Code of Canada with failing to provide suitable and adequate food and care for a senior German shepherd-type-dog found chained in her backyard and barely able to stand. On October 31, 2005, following receipt of information from a member of the public, an investigator from the Ontario SPCA Renfrew County Branch attended Shelley Lisk's residence in Pembroke. The dog, "J.J", was easily located, in plain view, chained in Ms. Lisk's backyard. Emaciated and barely able to hold himself up, J.J. ravenously devoured food provided by the investigator. Unable to quickly locate J.J.'s owner, the Ontario SPCA investigator removed the dog under the authority of the Ontario SPCA Act. J.J. was transported to Pembroke Animal Hospital where the veterinarians tried in vain to save his life. One veterinarian described J.J. as the most emaciated dog she had ever seen.
Shelley Lisk is scheduled to make her third appearance in the Ontario Court of Justice, Pembroke on March 28, 2006. If convicted, she could face a maximum six-month jail term, a maximum fine of $2000.00 and a two-year prohibition from owning any animals.
