We thought we would make you aware of an e-petition against puppy and kitten farming which was started in May 2013 and is now the UK’s No. 1 e-petition, as well as the biggest pet welfare e-petition of all time with over 100,000 signatures.
The aim is to see British Parliament legislating against puppies and kittens being sold without their mothers 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.
Its common for over 200 breeding bitches and stud dogs to be imprisoned in large concrete agricultural sheds (usually in rural Wales) and just kept alive to produce puppies for large profits.
The way these dogs are farmed means that the puppies are often severely inbred and sometimes suffering serious medical and behavioural problems.
The PupAid campaign has high profile celebrity supporters including Ricky Gervais, Elle MacPherson, Liam Gallagher, and Brian May and it hopes to stop the demand for farm bred puppies by raising much needed awareness about the correct way to choose a dog.
Its always best to see the puppys mother and litter mates or visit a rescue centre to adopt a puppy or adult dog. At Temple End we can always offer advice if you’re thinking of adding a dog to your family.
These mistreated dogs need our help so if you feel you would like to sign the e-petition HERE or find out more about puppy farming at www.pupaid.org. You can also follow @PupAid on Twitter and Pup Aid on Facebook.
