What a cracking day at PupAid yesterday! Such a warm and relieved atmosphere, one of palpable success – #lucyslaw will come into force on 1 October after a 9 year campaign. A strong team of just a few volunteers, led by Marc Abraham, reached the goal to ban puppy farming having battled the pet industry and the big welfare charities who should have achieved this objective tens of years ago.
Great day for the pointies too, Greyhound Ambassador, Magic, for Quaker Concern for Animals and Greyhound Compassion met up with Josh Burrell @jb-new of Lookdwn.com and joined him on his press pass in the VIP area. Great to meet so many welfare minded celebs and journalists who sympathised with the poor greyhounds within the racing industry, astounded by the GBGB’s own stats that 1,013 “were put to sleep or suffered sudden/natural death”, 25.4% trackside in 2017.
We took a few photos for the ambassadorial album.
