Pets, animals, birds of all kinds, you name it. I write about them often as you well know, as a subject very dear and close to my heart. Therefore, if you would just allow me a brief moment to share some important pet news with you, and then I’ll go.
I recently came across TV Vet Marc Abraham’s Facebook page (Marc the Vet). He has launched a campaign called ‘Where’s Mum’ with an e-petition to help ban the practice of puppy and kitten farming in the UK.
As you will see by clicking on the link above, this petition calls for a ban on the sale of puppies and kittens without the mother being present and hopes to show that urgent action needs to be taken to raise public awareness of this issue.
It is very encouraging to see that since this campaign was launched 3 weeks ago, 30,000 signatures have already been received but 100,000 signatures are needed before it can be brought before parliament.
I like to think that I’ve ‘done my bit’ by signing the petition as one small action to help end this cruelty. Won’t you do the same?
