We attend the All-party Parliamentary Dog Advisory Welfare Group, (#APDAWG; Twitter handle: @APDAWG1) which features PupAid’s campaign to ban the sale of puppies via third party sellers. We were thrilled when the Government e-petition calling for Lucy’s Law’s ban on puppies in pet shops and all commercial third party sellers breached 120,000 signatures. This means it will be debated in Parliament. Named after a Cavalier Spaniel rescued from a Welsh puppy farm, #Lucyslaw has the support of more than 90 MPs. The sale of puppies by pet shops and other so-called third party dealers is a trade that relies on animals supplied by horrendous puppy farms. If enacted #LucysLaw will bring about an immediate end to cruel puppy farming enabled by third party sales of pups. The campaign is led by TV vet Marc Abraham, winner of the Mirror’s 2015 Animal Hero Awards, backed by The Daily Mirror, and launched in Parliament by Scottish Nationalist MP Dr Lisa Cameron, chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Dog Advisory Welfare Group.
Please lobby your MP to back #LucysLaw and to push for reform through the debate in Parliament. Please keep signing: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/213451
Greyhounds and Galgos in repose (doing what they do best) but actively supporting #LucysLaw.
