Dogs found in Bow home were “emaciated” as owner is banned from keeping animals
A Bow woman has been banned from keeping animals for 10 years after dogs in her care were described as being “emaciated” by a RSPCA inspector.
Louise Sims, 33, of Saxon Road, was found guilty of causing unnecessary suffering at Thames Magistrate Court on March 9 and was given a nine-month community service order.
A joint operation between Tower Hamlets police, the borough’s animal wardens and the RSPCA led to a warrant being executed at her address on December 14 2010.
Two dogs, described as pit-bull types, were found to not have been cared for adequately and that their diet was not good enough.
Both animals were seized and a third dig, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, was taken from her home on December 22 to prevent further suffering.

She was arrested on January 28 on five counts of causing unnecessary suffering.
PC Stephen Rodgers, who has worked with the animal wardens’ service since 2009 to target the ownership[ of status and dangerous dogs in the borough, said: “This case and the resulting prosecution is a warning to anyone that keeps prohibited dogs or neglects animals that the police and partners in Tower Hamlets will bring them to justice.”
