DogLost 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.”
