A neighbour of Pawsh Oasis dog kennel at 280 Hector Rd. has initiated an inquiry with B.C.’s Office of the Ombudsman, says kennel owner Lisa Miller.
The kennel has been running since 2010 but is currently waiting to renew its business licence (which was withdrawn by Saanich in the fall). A council hearing regarding reinstating the licence was set for last month but was cancelled. In the meantime the kennel continues to operate on council’s permission until a conclusion can be reached.
Miller recently received a 20-page letter which she is replying to, she said. In turn, Miller said she’s filed an inquiry of her own though the ombudsman’s office regarding the Saanich Pound. That has not started.
Last month a Saanich lawyer told Miller’s lawyer to reapply, which she did.
Since then Saanich’s fire and building inspectors have signed off, and Miller is awaiting word from Saanich’s business licence section.
