SPCA raising cash for pug’s surgeries

The BC SPCA’s West Vancouver branch is aiming to raise $2,320 to pay for surgery and other medical care for a young pug named Ziggy.

The one-year-old stray needs to have his unseeing eye removed as it is causing him pain, according to a release from the SPCA. Ziggy will also need dental surgery because he struggles to eat due to his overcrowded mouth.

Ziggy was found in Duncan before being transferred to West Vancouver for extensive care.

“He has clearly been through a lot in his short lifetime,” stated West Vancouver SPCA branch manager Charlotte Ellice.

The dog will likely need a month to recover from surgery before he can be adopted.
