NEWMARKET, ON, March 19 /CNW/ - The largest fine ever for an animal
cruelty offence in Ontario was imposed yesterday when Sandra Quinn, now of
Burlington, Ontario received a fine of $12,000 after pleading guilty in
the Ontario Court of Justice, Norfolk County, to a charge brought under
the Ontario SPCA Act.

Quinn was charged in February last year by the Ontario SPCA following the
removal of 125 dogs from Cherry Valley Kennels near Waterford, Ontario.
She was the first person to be charged under the Act as amended in
December 2002 to address offences by breeders of dogs and cats for sale.
The amendments set out standards of care that breeders of dogs and cats
for sale must adhere to, and enable much stiffer penalties than in the
past. In addition to the fine, Quinn also received a ten-year prohibition
from breeding and selling dogs and cats.
