Last year Pup Aid launched an e-petition to help ban the sale of young puppies and kittens unless their mothers are present. Over 110,000 people signed our e-petition and the issue is now going to be debated in Parliament on September 4th 2014.
We need as many MPs as possible do their bit - to show the Government that there is strong, cross-party support for tackling puppy farming. MPs are already getting involved but we need you to make sure your MP knows about this issue.
Please set aside a couple of minutes to write to your local MP and tell them why they have to act. Here's what to do:
Puppy farming is the mass commercial production of puppies purely for profit and without a thought for the welfare or happiness of the pup, breeding bitch or stud dogs.
On a puppy farm breeding dogs and pups are usually kept in horrific dark conditions, totally unsocialized and riddled with both infectious and inbred often incurable diseases. These poorly pups are then sold en masse to pet shops, online or from free newspaper ads and usually die soon after reaching their new home.
