Breaking! 102 Dogs Rescued From Unauthorized Encampment In England; Puppies Believed To Be Bred On Site


More than 100 dogs were rescued from appalling conditions during a raid yesterday in South Cambridgeshire, England.

While some of the 102 dogs are suspected to have been stolen, the majority of the dogs are puppies so it is believed that they were bred on site.

South Cambridgeshire police explained that the seizure came after officers from its Community Action Team and Rural Crime Action Team, along with the RSPCA, carried out a warrant at an unauthorized encampment in the village of Willingham.

“The RSPCA and veterinary services were invited on site to work alongside officers to check on the welfare of a number of animals at the location. This has resulted in a large number of dogs being taken into the care of the RSPCA,” noted a post on the department’s Facebook page. “At present, our investigation is less than 24 hours old and with such a large number of animals seized, and also a large amount of property seized, we cannot reply directly to independent requests for information on specific dogs.”

The police department is requesting that dog owners looking for lost pets not use its emergency or non-emergency numbers to inquire as to whether their dog has been located.

“A small number were microchipped and the RSPCA is now in the process of contacting the owners,” continued the post, further noting that there is no evidence to suggest chips have been removed from any of the animals.

“We have a police liaison team and you can email us at,” shared the organization. “As you’re probably aware microchips can be removed or deactivated. We can cross match dogs with or without a chip.”

Police have reportedly arrested five people in connection to incident, including two men, a woman and a 14-year-old boy.
