A Prince Albert woman from is upset that the SPCA rejected her attempt to adopt her own dog because her other dog isn’t spayed and neutered.
Katy Campbell said she realized her dog Gizmo was missing on Wednesday. Her mother-in-law had been looking after him, but had given him to another daughter-in-law for a temporary stay. After she was told she couldn’t have pets in her building, the daughter-in-law took Gizmo to the SPCA.
“She never told us. So, I went there and I tried dealing with it but they wouldn’t give me back our dog,” said Campbell.

Saskatchewan's premier has no issue with an MLA training to re-enter the police force while finishing his term in office.
On Tuesday, the opposition NDP raised questions about Prince Albert-Carlton MLA Darryl Hickie. Hickie previously announced he will not be running in the 2016 provincial election. He plans to return to policing and he has already begun training with police in Prince Albert to prepare for when he done serving public office.
Prince Albert-Carlton MLA Darryl Hickie is under fire for doubling up on work. The MLA has been reinstated with the Prince Albert Police Service while he is still representing people in that city.
“Part of the issue for us is local people saying ‘how does this work? How is it that my MLA can investigate me or issue a ticket?’” said NDP Justice Critic John Nilson.
The Premier responded to the concerns in a written statement. Brad Wall says Hickie is training so he can return to active duty after his term as MLA is over.

Halcro and his company approached the shore by ship.
