PUP AID 2011 – Puppy Farming Awareness Day – Brighton 18th Sept
I have great pleasure in announcing that PUP AID 2011 will take place once again at the beautiful setting of Stanmer House (pictured) near Brighton, Sussex on Sunday 18th September 2011.
This very special day will once again give you, the dog-loving public, the golden opportunity to help raise awareness about the UK’s cruel puppy farming trade at the UK’s only charity celebrity judged fun dog show and boutique music festival.
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.
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.
If they do make it they usually require thousands of pounds worth of medical, surgical and/or behavioural treatment to fix them causing even more pain, suffering and heartbeak for both pups and families.
In order to stop puppy farming we must simply stop the demand. By raising awareness through events like PUP AID and promoting rescue dog adoption and responsible breeding practices it has to end eventually. Please join me at PUP AID 2011 and help to speed up that process.
Some dog-loving celebs and bands have already confirmed and once again there’ll be trade stands, amazing food, doggy displays and loads of fun for all the family to all raise awareness of this important animal welfare issue.
For trade stand enquiries please contact: Rebecca@cherrywoodevents.co.uk
For bands/musicians wishing to play at this unique event please contact: Milton@Penflickstudios.com
I’ll post more information about PUP AID 2011 up soon, so keep an eye on this space, or why not follow me on Twitter?
