The Saskatoon SPCA is warning people that notifications appearing to be from animal protection officers may be posted on people’s doors.Anyone who receives a notice is asked to contact the SPCA directly as opposed to following the instructions on the notices.A bag containing blank notices and a microchip scanner was stolen from the organization’s emergency on-call vehicle earlier this week.The notices are supposed to be used by animal protection officers investigating complaints of suspected animal cruelty. If officers respond to an address and no one is home, a notice is posted on the door.The SPCA is concerned someone could misuse the stolen blank notices.A microchip scanner, which reads pet microchips and shows identification numbers, was also taken.No confidential information was compromised by the theft, says SPCA operations manager Marv Le Nabat.
