Main article content
20 dogs of varying breeds were seized on Thursday (15 April) after a warrant was carried out at an address in Shipley Bridge.
Tandridge Safer Neighbourhood Team attended an address on Antlands Lane at approximately 1.30pm, where they found 20 dogs of varying breeds being kept at the location. They were all checked over at the scene by a vet and seized under the Animal Welfare Act due to concerns about their living conditions. They will be receiving further medical treatment elsewhere.
Microchip enquiries are ongoing, and any owners identified through this process will be contacted.
PS Horner said, “This has been a very successful joint operation for Tandridge Safer Neighbourhood Team and our partners. An animal welfare investigation is ongoing, and the dogs found here today will now be protected from further mistreatment, which is what we set out to do.
“We recognise the wide-ranging nature of rural crime and its impact on the community. Rural crime is a priority for Surrey Police, we are listening to the concerns of our residents, and we will act swiftly on the information we obtain.”
