If you’re looking to start off the new year with a new furry friend, some adorable husky puppies are looking for some dog-lovers to give them all the love they need. The B.C. SPCA has a bunch of husky puppies available for adoption now. These surrendered pups have gotten much-needed medical attention from the animal welfare organization and now it’s time for them to go to their forever homes.

The B.C. SPCA has been caring for 17 puppies and two other husky dogs since Christmas Eve that were surrendered to animal control from a property in the Interior.

After more than a week of caring for the huskies and giving them all the medical attention they needed, they’re now up for adoption. People in Vernon and south Okanagan can apply online to bring one of them home.

These adorable little furballs were also named thanks to suggestions submitted by the public. 

There were two themes, northern and Norse gods, which were voted on by the public in an online poll and northern won by a landslide.

So all the puppies have northern names like Tundra, Yukon, Arctic, Aurora, Inooka, Sitka and, of course, North.

The B.C. SPCA is now accepting online applications from people who want to adopt the huskies.

While most of the huskies are available for adoption, Uki, the smallest puppy of them all, needs more time with the B.C. SPCA because of medical concerns. 

His name is an Inuktitut word that means 'survivor' and "staff remain hopeful that he will live up to his new name."

Just before Christmas, the 17 puppies, their mother and a senior husky were surrendered after animal control and the RCMP responded to a complaint about the living conditions of the dogs.

When they were found, the puppies were eight-to-10-weeks old and were living outside in the snow and cold with their mother and the older dog.

Animal control held the dogs overnight and then transferred them into the care of the B.C. SPCA on Christmas Eve.

The husky puppies can be adopted from only two B.C. SPCA branches in Vernon and south Okanagan.

Even though only online applications are being accepted, if you want to adopt one of these adorable puppies you’ll have to actually meet them in person to make sure it’s a good match.

You can apply to adopt from the Vernon branch here and from the south Okanagan branch here.
