DogLost teams up with Marc the Vet

DogLost & Marc The Vet - Pup AidDogLost is teaming up with Marc the Vet in his campaign to ban the cruel practice of puppy farming.

Through Pup Aid, Marc has launched a petition to get all puppies for sale seen with their mothers.

Said Marc: “Most dog owners say they’d never buy a dog from a puppy farm, yet a large number will due to common scams especially by private dealers.”

“We need 100,000 signatures from the nation’s animal lovers to make the Government listen and hopefully end this needless and preventable suffering for good.”

“The Government must ban the sale of young puppies and kittens unless their mothers are present,” continued Marc, “as an absent mother is a clear compromise of both health and welfare for these animals and often a big clue indicating puppy farming.”

Said a spokesperson for DogLost: “Inevitably puppy-farmed dogs are prone to illness and are far more likely to be discarded. We want to reduce the number of dogs that end up on our website because owners can’t cope with them.”

  1. I have signed . This campaign is so important. Without knowing how the public feel about puppy farming the Government will do nothing to stop it . Everything about puppy farming is wrong .

  2. Ban puppy farming. I have rescued the poor bitches 7 awful years Living in terrible conditions. My last one I have had for 3 months and she is terrified still won’t come up to me.

  3. I’ve signed because it is a massive problem.Buying a pup in this way needs to be seen as the cruel,selfish act it is.If you want a dog why not take the time to get one in a proper way.Having a pet is a privilege,not a right. There is a well known outlet for these sort of dogs from which “celebrities” have bought puppies and the site advertises this.This can only encourage people to think purchasing a pup in this way is alright.
    The government obviously doesn’t want to take a lead,hence dumping it on councils who have no money to spend on enforcement.
    It could be ended overnight if there was the will to do so.
