UK Pupaid Anti Puppy (and Kitten) Farming Petition

This is something I feel very strongly about, and so I’m using this weeks post to highlight the brilliant Marc Abraham and Pupaid, and the petition calling to ban the sale of puppies and kittens from anywhere but the home of a responsible breeder.

I won’t say much more on the matter, or post any photos, but will let the petition text speak for itself:

Ban the sale of young puppies & kittens without their mothers being present

Puppies & kittens mass produced in horrific puppy/kitten farms are separated from their mothers too early, transported long distances & sold via pet shops, newspaper ads, websites & private dealers.

These puppies/kittens suffer: –
* Impaired immune systems
* Painful diseases requiring costly treatment
* Shorter life spans
* Poor socialisation leading to behavioural issues

Prospective owners should always: –
* Ask “Where’s Mum?”
* Insist on seeing puppy/kitten & mother interacting
* Be aware of scams e.g. fake/no mother present

The only exceptions are rescue animals that have been orphaned/abandoned.

We, the undersigned, call on the Government to ban the sale of young puppies/kittens unless their mothers are present.

We ask for urgent action to raise awareness & encourage the public to choose a responsibly bred puppy/kitten at least 8 weeks old, or adopt from a legitimate rescue organisation.

The Government must end the cruel practice of puppy/kitten farming in the UK.
