Numerous readers contacted the Post to say they were unhappy with the way several dogs were apparently handled in a video posted to Facebook this week.

In the video, a number of dogs appear to be attached by their leads to a parked car, which says 'The Paws Pack' on the back windscreen, before being put into the boot by a woman.

Upset Facebook users who shared the video online said they were concerned that the dogs were not being treated with due care.

The Post was unable to contact the person who posted the original video, to confirm where and when it was recorded, but it is thought to be in Preston.

Today, the animal charity the RSPCA confirmed they had been made aware of the three-minute recording.

A spokesman for the RSPCA said: "We are aware of this and would urge anyone with first-hand information to please contact us on our helpline on 0300 1234 999."

When the Post contacted the owner of the business, they declined to comment and their online pages were unavailable.
