<div class="quote-block">An Etobicoke dog owner has accused the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of euthanizing her beloved husky unnecessarily and without her knowledge.<br>
Gianna Tramontin said her 16-year-old brown and white husky, Rocky, was healthy and received regular checkups with a local veterinarian. But she was stunned when she returned home two weeks ago to find her pet was gone.<br>
A notice from the OSPCA was posted to her door informing her officials had taken Rocky away and were charging her for failing to provide proper shelter and veterinary care. A neighbour had earlier alerted the organization after noticing that Rocky had collapsed in the sun.<br>
When Tramontin followed up with the OSPCA, she claims the agency only told her that her pet was being treated. In fact, the animal was euthanized the same day.</div>

I have to wonder - if I returned home and found my dog gone, with a note that he had been impounded, I would be down at the pound/shelter immediately.<br><br>
Also, I wouldn't be leaving a 16 year old dog (16 is very old for a dog that size) outside while I was gone, especially not in the heat or cold.<br><br>
ETA: know from experience that AW organizations can become more about human egos than about their mission, just like any other human endeavor. However, I just wanted to point out a couple of things about the story that raise some red flags for me as to where the truth may lie.
