Puppy power: MPs forced to debate plight of factory pets in ‘battery farms for dogs’
Hooray! Marc The Vet led this campaign to force the Government to outlaw puppy farming!
“Born into a world of darkness and filth, with little or no human contact, they are often left without food or water. At just a few weeks old they are taken from their mothers and transported vast distances in search of profits for those who breed them. …
… Factory farmed puppies and kittens are separated from their mothers too early and go on to suffer weakened immune systems and shorter life spans, the petition claims. Launched by TV vet Marc Abraham earlier this year, it has now passed the 100,000 threshold needed to see the issue debated in the House of Commons.
… The demands for action over puppy farming have cross-party support. Green Party MP Caroline Lucas said: “I will do all I can to promote a debate in the Chamber about it as soon as possible. Puppy and kitten farming is an inhumane practice, which the Government should ban immediately.”
