Durham Regional Police Service has made arrests in both animal abuse cases in North Clarington.
Although very similar, both investigations are separate, and investigators with the assistance of the Provincial Animal Welfare Services arrested and charged two individuals. The surviving puppy (Minnie) is currently recovering in a foster home and is in good health. ( Photo Above from DRPS )
