In Sheffield, England, former employees of the The Doggy Den have been sharing videos on social media showing staff at the canine daycare kicking and throwing toys at the heads of crying and whimpering dogs.
Three videos taken from surveillance footage show dogs being kicked and has been labeled as “horrific abuse” by many of the viewers. One of the videos show only two men in a room with at least 20 dogs. Another video showed the dogs pacing while a Dalmation in a cage whimpers and cries in the back of the building.
The videos were alleged to have been captured between March and December of last year. Those employees are no longer there and have since stated they were too afraid to expose the treatment of the dogs for fear of losing their jobs.
“There were too many dogs to staff members, the dogs would fight all the time; puppies were places in the same room as adult dogs; the dogs were stressed out and frustrated,” she wrote. “I left because I was bitten by one dogs and couldn’t cope with the stress and pressure anymore.”
“I can assure our customers and clients they are isolated incidents and the staff members in question have now left the business. I can 100% say that this kind of abuse does not happen on our premises.”
