Ending Puppy Farms with Pup Aid

- Activism, Awareness

Next weekend, on 3 September, Pup Aid are hosting their annual free dog show in Primrose Hill, London.  The aim of this event and Pup Aid as an organisation, is to simply put a stop to the demand for puppies, which leads to puppy farming.  They do this by setting their event up to raise awareness for responsible breeding practices and promoting the amazing dogs available for rescue.   Puppy farms are unfortunately still running all around the world where both the breeding dogs and their puppies are kept in horrible conditions, the puppies are then sold in mass and the mumma dogs will go on to have more litters than the maximum frequency they should.  It’s tough knowing that this is still going on, but with organisations like Pup Aid and events like the one they are hosting, we can put an end to this horrible industry.   For more information about Pup Aid and their event click HERE.
