“Thankfully she is okay, she ate her wet food and woke up this morning seemingly fine,” said the woman.

She says there have been multiple animal cruelty incidents in Rutland, some of which include cats allegedly being beaten with bats and she claims a few of her neighbours say their cats have gone missing.

Police say they partner with community organizations to handle these calls.

“RCMP often work collaboratively with our partners at the Kelowna BC SPCA on these types of investigations. Our officers typically work alongside and provide support to SPCA Animal Protection Officer’s who typically take the lead on animal cruelty investigations,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.

For all concerns of neglect or cruelty to animals, the public can contact the BC SPCA reporting hotline at 1-855-622-7722.
