Kijiji Buyers BEWARE of Puppy SCAM!

Gail Benoit & Dana Bailey continue to sell puppies despite their previous convictions of Animal Cruelty and upcomming charges on numerous other animal cruelty charges. They are now operating out of Dartmouth/Halifax area & continue to post ads on Kijiji in hopes of generating new sales.

"There was no doubt the pair mistreated dogs."

"The distressed state of the puppies was not a sudden occurrence. It developed over time. Even if the appellants’ control of the puppies had been brief — a matter of days — there was ample time and opportunity to relieve their then obvious distress, or to begin doing so,"

Characterization lacked "any air of reality" - Justice Peter Bryson Source

Benoit, Bailey charged again !!!

Roxville puppy brokers face new animal cruelty charges

Three weeks before receiving the verdict on their 2007 animal cruelty charges, puppy brokers Gail Benoit and Dana Bailey are facing new charges of animal cruelty.

The Digby County puppy brokers were served today, Jan. 5, with charges relating to their sale in August 2008 of puppies that died from the fatal parvo virus within hours or days of being purchased by their new owner.

Although the SPCA received calls from additional individuals who had purchased gravely ill puppies from Gail Benoit, the current charges relate to four puppies that had autopsies performed on behalf of the Nova Scotia SPCA.

Sean Kelly said the SPCA’s investigations unit has been building the case over the past several months and CTV news footage, in which Bailey talks about puppies dying on their property while in their care, was seized as evidence.

Kelly said the SPCA continue to investigate additional reports of sick puppies sold by Benoit and Bailey.
