FOR A number of years I, Peter Harrison and many of my friends in the canine industry have been pushing for a legislation to stop people profiting from breeding with sick mothers and allowing bitches to be lifelong involved to breed puppies.
Most sales are over the internet and very expensive many have earned big money out of these poor kittens and dogs. It is proposed that only licenced organisations like registered refuge centres breeders. It will be illegal to sell a kitten or puppy unless the mother is seen and that the kittens and pups know their mother and be interacting.
The sale of puppies and kittens without their mother present will be banned in a bid to end the “disturbing” trade of animals bred in puppy farms, Theresa May has announced. The new legislation will require all sellers including charitable shelter to show potential buyers the puppies alongside their mothers before the sale takes place, marking the biggest change in pet vending for 66 years. The move is designed to stop people buying puppies online without ever seeing them or from other countries.
The Prime Minister, who had two dogs during her childhood – a poodle named Tassel and a mongrel called Lucky – said she wants to ensure that families can enjoy the arrival of a “happy, healthy” puppy that has not suffered from maltreatment and cruelty.
The new legislation will require all sellers to show potential buyers that kittens and puppies alongside their mothers before the sale takes place, marking the biggest change in pet vending for 66 years.
Pet stores in these US states are now restricted to selling only shelter dogs and cats. The legislation relies on halting the sale of animals in pet stores to decrease demand for dogs from the puppy mill trade.
