It is all about PEOPLE POWER so let's do it folks. Thanks again for all your support x Pup Aid"
HM Government e-petition
Ban the sale of young puppies and kittens without their mothers being present.
Puppies and kittens mass produced in horrific puppy/kitten farms are separated from their mothers too early, transported long distances and sold via pet shops, newspaper ads, websites and 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 and mother interacting
- Be aware of scams e.g. fake/no mother present
The only exceptions are rescue animals that have been orphaned/abandoned.
We 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 and 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.
