Date of alert:

A couple from Horley in Surrey have been given suspended prison sentences, after a court found they caused unnecessary suffering to multiple animals in their care.
On Thursday, 15 April 2021, Tandridge Safer Neighbourhood Team conducted a warrant at an address in Shipley Bridge, where 20 dogs were seized under the Animal Welfare Act.
All have since been rehomed, but Police say some of the dogs are still struggling to understand that there are 'kind people in the world'.
Officers found kennels at the property were in a poor state, with dirt floors, damaged roofs and layers of faeces that hadn't been cleaned.
