Defra Campaign on Puppy Buying (‘Petfished’) March 2020


Defra have launched its campaign to help puppy seekers avoid unscrupulous breeders and dealers. These people masquerade as small time, home breeders but the reality is that the puppies have been bred and kept in very poor conditions. Not to  mention the poor welfare of the parent dogs. This is a major development in improving the standards of animal welfare and protecting the public from the consequences of unethical breeding practices.
