Green Animals Spokesperson: Government heeding our call on third-party puppy trade

Responding to the news that Defra is calling for evidence as the Government¬†considers a ban on third-party puppy sales, Keith Taylor MEP, the Green Party’s Animals Spokesperson, said:

“It is great to see the Government finally taking steps towards heeding our call to ban third-party sales of puppies. The Green Party has been lobbying the Government for years¬†on this issue as a, properly implemented, ban is vital in the fight to put an end to the inhumane and cruel puppy farming industry. Today’s news is a welcome victory for Greens and animal welfare campaigners alike; however, we will remain vigilant to ensure action follows words.”
