A Nova Scotia man is fighting to get his dogs back after being charged with animal cruelty.

The Nova Scotia branch of the SPCA said charges were laid recently against the Falmouth man after a public complaint was made about several animals living inside a Hants County home.

The SPCA says David Sinclair is charged with causing an animal to be in distress and failing to provide adequate medical attention when an animal was wounded or ill.

He is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 3.

“The accused has filed an appeal with the Animal Cruelty Appeal Board in attempts to have the seized dogs returned to him,” a statement said.
