Raising Awareness about Puppy Farming
Pup Aid at Primrose Hill
Pup Aid is a fun dog show organised by a group of dog-loving volunteers who believe the only way to end the cruel practice of puppy farming is to create as much public awareness about the issue as possible; by inviting celebrities, bands, artists, and of course the public and their dogs to all come together and make some noise on international Puppy Farming Awareness Day.
Pup Aid’s aim is simply to educate every member of the British public about the correct way to get a dog, either by adopting a rescue dog from any of the overflowing rescue centres in the UK, or visiting a responsible breeder where you will always see the puppy interacting with it’s mother.
It’s hoped that this widespread education will create enough awareness to stop people buying puppies from pet-shops or online from dealers and as a direct result reduce the demand for these poorly pups and finally end this evil practice of puppy farming for good.

Rescue a Puppy
Fortunately dedicated staff & volunteers in rescue & re-homing centres pick up the pieces & provide puppies with socialization, training and care until loving new homes can be found for them.
Most puppy farmers will transport their puppies to dealers, who sell them online, at pet shops, & newspapers making it a lot more difficult to identify where the puppy came from..
