The Pup Aid e-petition

oscarPup Aid has launched an e-petition to help ban the cruel practice of puppy and kitten farming in the UK!

Founded in 2010 by TV vet Marc Abraham, we have received huge support from a nation of animal lovers including celebrities Ricky Gervais, Liam Gallagher, Brian May, Joanna Page, Meg Mathews, and Sarah Harding to name a few and now we need your help to end puppy farming!

Puppy farming is the mass commercial production of puppies purely for profit and without any thought for the health, welfare, or happiness of either the pup or breeding dogs. Kept in horrific conditions, then sent long distances cross country and sold en masse - usually poorly and riddled with painful disease - to pet shops, websites, and private dealers; these puppies often die within days of arriving in their new home.

According to a recent Dogs Trust survey, 95% of dog owners say they wouldn't buy a dog from a puppy farm yet as many as 900,000 people may have done so without even knowing.

TV Vet Marc Abraham says:

'Most dog owners say they'd never buy a dog from a puppy farm, yet a large number will due to common scams especially by private dealers. This is exactly why Pup Aid have launched this e-petition. We need 100,000 signatures from the nation's animal lovers to make the Government listen and hopefully end this needless and preventable suffering for good.'

'The Government must ban the sale of young puppies and kittens unless their mothers are present; as an absent mother is a clear compromise of both health and welfare for these animals and often a big clue indicating puppy farming.'

Pup Aid believes prospective puppy and kitten owners should always:

  • Ask "Where's Mum?"
  • Insist on seeing the puppy/kitten and mother interacting
  • Be aware of scams e.g. fake or no mother present at all

Pup Aid aims to educate and raise awareness about the cruel trade of puppy and kitten farming helping the British public to only buy from reputable and honourable breeders e.g. Kennel Club Assured Breeders, or consider adopting a dog from a local rescue centre. Pup Aid hope their campaign and e-petition will curb the demand and supply for farmed puppies and kittens and help tackle the horrific practice of puppy and kitten farming in the UK.
