SPCA Dog Adoption Hoax

Someone has spread a false news that SPCA is going to put thousands of dogs to sleep. It results that SPCA's phone lines have been flooded.

From SPCA's Facebook page:

Dear All

We have been informed that there has been a SMS circulating in cyber space that the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) will be receiving or have received, a thousand dogs from one of Mutts & Mittens’ tenants and putting them to sleep.

As a result of the hoax message, our telephone lines at our headquarters have been ringing off the hook, putting a halt to our Animal Support Officers answering emergency calls, to the detriment of animals that need our attention the most.

The SPCA categorically denies having received any of these animals.

We will take legal action against those who perpetuate these malicious text messages.

Thank you.
