Robert Phipps has with the help of a team of volunteers looked after dogs at his warehouse for about 18 months.

He said: “We are yet another small dog rescue victimised by the RSPCA. Where were they when these dogs needed them and their owners phoned up asking for help or they were found stray and under-weight?

“We don’t believe in kennels as they’re out dated and stress the dogs out so all ours are crated or loose in packs and all are clean happy and healthy.

“There were no issues with animal welfare. The dogs were healthy. We will fight this and we will win.”
