Officers raided the property, which cannot be named for legal reasons, on March 30 after members of the public reported concerns about the animals.

The dogs were found living in filthy conditions and were seized due to "significant concerns over their immediate unnecessary suffering."

The 13 dogs are now in a safe and secure environment and their needs are being addressed, said a spokesman for Preston Police.
