CALGARY -- Animal neglect charges have been laid against an animal rescue group and its founders after an Alberta SPCA raid two months ago which saw dozens of cats and dogs seized.

On June 10, the SPCA took 45 dogs and 20 cats from the Oops-a-Dazy rescue farm, near Gleichen, about 100 km southeast of Calgary.

In late July almost a dozen charges were leveled.

Oops-a-Dazy faces two charges of causing or permitting animals to be in distress.

Founding members Debra and Edward Michel each also face two charges of causing or permitting animals to be in distress, as well as two charges of failing to provide animals with adequate care when the animals are injured or ill.
