Where’s Mum?

#Wheresmum Campaign

With celebrity support #wheresmum was launched in 2015 to help the British public choose a healthy happy puppy – and is still going strong today!

The campaign focuses on educating new owners about the cruel trade of puppy farming ensuring they ONLY buy from a reputable and honorable breeder.

Where’s Mum? National Campaign

Choose a healthy happy puppy

Pup Aid’s #wheresmum campaigned kicked off in style with Lydia & Debbie from TOWIE launching the campaign on Channel 5’s Live with Gabby then went on to be featured as part of the Mother’s Day feature in the Sunday Mirrors ‘Celebs on Sinday’.

We’ve had enormous amounts of support with features in the Mail Online with Meg Mathews and her daughter Anais, along with their beautiful Boston Terrier Oscar. After their own distressing experience they are helping to highlight the need to ask “Where’s Mum?”. You can read the full article here.

Happy & healthy

These days it’s never been easier to get your hands on a new puppy. But how can you be sure that this tiny ball of fluff will grow into a happy and healthy dog and live to a ripe old age of sometimes sixteen years old?

A combination of cute and convenience culture means new dog owners are finding themselves helplessly lured into pictures of little balls of fluff that they can take home, feed, play with, and look after for the rest of the dog’s happy and healthy lives.

Born For Profit Not Love

Sadly the reality is far from either cute or fluffy with well meaning dog lovers ending up with a depressed, sick, diseased puppy that doesn’t resemble its picture or breed it’s advertised as.

These puppies are typically born on puppy farms – commercial breeders that put profit before welfare mass producing sick pups to sell from outlets such as pet shops, websites, free newspaper adverts, even motorway service stations and dodgy car parks.

You're told mum's
at the vet,

basically anywhere else

very cheap
(£100-£350)
or very expensive
(£2000-£7000)

Hollywood: Where Even Doggy Dreams Can Come True

When I was last in L.A. four years ago there was one particular disturbing sight that’s always stayed with me since – a depressed sixteen week old Weimaraner puppy for sale: all alone, squeezed into a glass tank on a shelf, surrounded by yet more glass tanks containing even more pups, and all within one […]
