RSPCA Prosecution

If you’ve been wrongfully accused of animal neglect and are dealing with an RSPCA prosecution case, we’re here to help put things right.

Dealing with an RSPCA prosecution can often feel like you’re fighting a losing battle.

And if you’ve been wrongfully charged, the results can be devastating – for both you and your pet.

If you are being investigated by the RSPCA, we look carefully at your circumstances before delivering a plan specifically tailored to you.

Not only could you lose ownership of your pet, but you could lose the right to keep another animal in the future, too.

This could be particularly challenging if you have a working animal, such as a guide dog.


Recent RSPCA Prosecution Defence Successes

Hannah Costley recently represented a client being investigated by the RSPCA for causing unnecessary suffering and failing to meet the needs of 3 of his horses.

Due to the legal advice given prior to and during the interview under caution, as well as active pre-charge engagement, no action was taken against the client; his horses are being returned to his care.

Hannah has also represented a mother and son being investigated by the RSPCA following the death of 2 of their ferrets. This case also resulted in no further action and the clients were able to keep their 17 remaining ferrets.
