A MASSIVE thank you to all at Boycott Dogs4Us, CARIAD, Marc Abraham (Pup Aid), and obviously Lisa for Lucy the Rescue Cavalier, and everyone who fought so hard for this.
The law, which aims to ban puppy and kitten farming and the sale of puppies and kittens in pet stores, is expected to come into force in April 2020.
What this means
Simply put, anyone buying a puppy must deal directly with breeders or rescue centres.
Breeders will have to show that the animal was bred on their own premises.
Puppies and kittens must no longer be sold in pet stores and through third party dealers.
In spite of this amazing news, it still needs to be said that it is actually the buyers of puppies and kittens from pet stores and dealers who are the ones TRULY responsible for the horrific treatment of breeding dogs and cats, puppies and kittens.
Without those buyers, backyard breeders, puppy farmers and dealers would not exist.
