Some are saying dogs are being poisoned at Clayton Dog Off-Leash Park.

CLOVERDALE — Is someone poisoning dogs at Clayton Off-Leash Dog Park?

Some think so, and Surrey’s bylaw department has had one official complaint.

In a Facebook post, Bosley’s Pet Food Plus Cloverdale writes, “Please be careful at this park if you are going there. There has been three incidents with Valium at this park.”

Shawn Eccles, cruelty investigator with the BC SPCA, said as of Tuesday night the organization hadn’t received any complaints.

“From our perspective, it’s a rumour, but certainly it’s not the first time we’ve heard of possible poisonings or attempted poisoning,” he said Wednesday morning, noting poisonings occur both intentionally and unintentionally.

At this point, the SPCA does not have an investigation open, but Eccles urged animal owners to be cautious.

“Whether off-leash or not, be vigilant at all times when your animal is running loose,” he warned.

If anyone has information related to potential poisoning, they can call the SPCA’s cruelty hotline at 1-855-622-7722. The Clayton dog park is located at 7011 188th St.
