A raid by police on a puppy farm, has led to the seizure of over 100 animals.

Police have seized over 100 animals as part of a raid on a puppy farm, as reported by the eveningtimes.co.uk.

Police made an advance on the Ardlogie farm, near Fyvie, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, on Tuesday morning. Officers from the SPCA also aided in the raid, on what is being dubbed Scotland’s largest ever puppy farm.

During the raid, officers found almost 90 dogs and puppies, with some of the puppies estimated to be as young as five days old. They were subsequently transported to a charity rescue centre, after being found in deplorable conditions.

These were not the only animals recovered, as officers also seized a number of rabbits and ferrets also being kept there. In total 105 animals were seized by officers, in the second planned raid of the farm.

The raid was carried out by the Scottish SPCA, as part of undercover operation Delphin. Operation Delphin is aimed at taking down the puppy farm trade in the country. The SPCA confirmed that all animals are undergoing intensive veterinary screening, to assess their health.

“We can confirm that we attended a property in the Aberdeenshire area yesterday and seized 105 animals. All of the animals are currently going through an intensive veterinary screening process to assess their overall health.”, an SPCA spokesperson said.

They say tackling this problem is now their priority, with these farms putting the profits before the welfare of the animals.
