A shocking image shows the conditions under which more than 20 dogs were kept, leading to a man being banned from owning pets for five years.

Junade Ali, 27, of Gillingham, was found guilty of three animal welfare offenses including causing needless suffering.

Some of Ali’s 23 dogs had no access to water, while others had no bedding and were kept in cramped conditions, such as crates that were too small.

An investigation was launched by the Medway Council in October 2019 following a request from a man asking for a dog breeding license. Kent Live reports.

Officials conducting a pre-application inspection found three Belgian Malinois, two Neapolitan Mastiffs and 18 puppies in these appalling conditions.

Officers were also made aware that two other dogs were kept in the apartment above the property. Three concerns about Ali’s well-being were immediately raised and the RSPCA contacted.

In January 2020, a joint investigation with the RSPCA resulted in officers confiscating 19 dogs, 15 puppies and four adults at the property.

Since the last visit, the conditions the dogs were living in had gotten worse, some dogs had urine burns on their feet and one dog had an untreated and painful eye condition that required surgery.

Ali was banned from owning, keeping or dealing in animals for five years by Medway Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, March 24.

He was also sentenced to a 12-month community order and to pay £600 in court costs.

Cllr Jane Chitty, Medway Council portfolio owner for enforcement, said: “We take animal welfare very seriously and are working with partners like the RSPCA to ensure backyard breeders are brought to justice. In this case, the defendant apparently had no regard for the dogs in his care and saw them as a way to make money.

“As shown in this case, we will inspect the premises to ensure the animals are being properly cared for. If you are thinking of buying a pet, we would encourage you to consider placement at a sanctuary or ensure you are purchasing from a reputable, licensed breeder.”

An RSPCA spokesman added: “We know there is a surge in people looking for puppies and buying dogs as the school holidays begin, but we urge families to consider carefully whether getting a dog is right for them she is. Dogs are a big commitment and require a lot of time and attention, even after summer is over and the kids are back at school.
