Criminal charges have been approved against a Silver Creek woman after the SPCA seized 13 of her horses in late 2013 and early 2014.

Charlene Robinson is facing two charges: willfully causing or permitting unnecessary pain, suffering or injury to an animal and neglect or failing to provide adequate food, water and care to an animal. The SPCA responded to concerns that animals were being ill-treated and the animals were eventually determined to be in distress under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.

Those horses have been re-homed; however, the BC SPCA is still in need of homes for other horses. Information can be found on the SPCA’s website.
