    A hundred and sixty animals were removed from Four Paws in South Killingholme in March.

    The RSPCA hopes to start reuniting dogs with their owners within "the next few weeks".

    Quote Message: Nobody from the RSPCA is talking to us, or telling us anything. All we need to know is have they got our dog and when can we have it back. There's absolutely no need to hang on to a dog for months. We are now considering legal action." from Gavin Hamilton Dog owner
