A woman arrested after dead dogs were seized in RSPCA raids is planning to run a puppy-selling business from the same house. Lilly Cooper was one of two people arrested as 90 puppies – four of which were dead – were seized at the property on Marple Road, Offerton, Stockport.
The house was one of two Stockport addresses raided by police and the RSPCA in November.
Dogs were found in BUCKETS in November when RSPCA and police raided. Now Lilly Cooper wants to continue "in conformity with the current laws"
