Chloe Louise Robinson of Conway Street, Birkenhead has been summoned to appear before the Wirral Magistrates’ Court by Animal Protection Services for fraud, unlicensed puppy breeding and animal welfare offences following illegal sale of a sick puppy that subsequently had to be put to sleep. Robinson must appear before the Court on the 15th October 2020.
Animal Protection Services is a registered charity that investigates and prosecutes organised animal cruelty. It is an unusual charity in that it both investigates and prosecutes cases, using powers contained within section 6 of the Prosecution of Offences Act 1985.
A spokesman for Animal Protection Services said: “We are committed to investigating illegal puppy trading. The trade remains a major concern with many animals being kept in poor and unsanitary conditions and dealers failing to establish an effective biosecurity programme.
“As a result of the fraudulent puppy trade, puppies are dying soon after being purchased.”
The charity is urging anyone who has purchased a sick puppy in the last three years to contact them on 0330 120 0909 or via their website on www.animalprotectionservices.co.uk.
