UK Ilegal

Puppy Farming

Many puppy traffickers are buying puppies 'wholesale' looking for the highest profit margin and are leaving a trail of sick and dead puppies behind them.

Together, with the RSPCA, we wanted to see an end to sales of puppies other than from the breeder or rescue organisations and all puppies being bred in an environment that gives them the best chance of having a happy, healthy life.

Over 100,000 people signed the RSPCA petition calling for action to be taken to tackle the unscrupulous trade in puppies.

The good news is that the UK Government has announced that it will introduce a new licensing scheme for anyone breeding or selling more than three litters of puppies a year, and banning the sale of puppies younger than eight weeks old.

This will be a welcome step in the right direction if the standards are high enough and properly enforced, this should help those wanting to buy a puppy to distinguish between a responsible and a rogue breeder or seller.

If you are looking to bring a new puppy into your home, know how to recognise a puppy farm breeder. Visit the RSPCA website below.

UK Dog

Homelessness

Cats and dogs depend on humans for their everyday needs – food, water, shelter, veterinary care, love and more. Yet thousands of animals across the UK have no guardian to care for them, let alone a warm, comfortable place to curl up in at night.

 

Many suffer and die on the streets or have to be euthanised for lack of good homes. Animal homelessness is a complex crisis, but the solution is simple: adopt animals from shelters or the streets instead of buying them from breeders or pet stores.

At any given time, there are an estimated 100,000 dogs – and countless cats – without homes in the UK. 

Open-admission shelters accept every animal in need, caring for them and keeping them safe, warm, fed and loved. But because there are so many homeless animals and not enough good homes for them all, many have to be euthanised.

 

About 21 dogs are euthanised in shelters across the UK every day.

This year we have chosen to support Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, to ensure more animals have loving, caring homes. 

Asia Dog

Meat Trade

The dog meat trade is one of the most serious animal welfare issues in Asia. 

 

The availability of dog meat is widespread in Asia, where the welfare concern is enormous due to the large numbers of dogs being stolen from owners, taken from the streets or sourced from farms, transported long distances and inhumanely slaughtered.

 

Dogs and cats are crammed together on the back of trucks and driven for days—sick, hungry, thirsty, injured and afraid—then beaten to death or hanged in slaughterhouses or markets. In South Korea, dogs are bred in barren cages, without proper food, water or protection from the elements. 

 

Become an animal defender and support us to end this crazed regime.
