PUP AID 2012: Taking a Stand Against Puppy Farming
I’m extremely proud to let you know that the UK’s biggest anti-puppy farming event is back bigger and better than before!
Now in its third year, PupAid is moving from its south coast home to the leafy doggy paradise of North London’s Primrose Hill, part of The Royal Parks, on Saturday 8th September, and promises to be a jam-packed day of fun for all the family – and our faithful four-legged friends – with trade stalls, delicious fresh food, music and Scruffs heats judged by some famous faces.
But more importantly it’s about saving lives, puppy lives to be exact, and with enough awareness about the cruel farming trade, PupAid – which is backed by celebrities including Meg Mathews (pictured – who recently became our official PupAid patron), Simon Cowell, Kim Kardashian, Lizzie Cundy, Kerry Ellis, Hollyoaks’ stars Gemma Merna and Kieron Richardson, EastEnders’ stars Rita Simons and Patsy Palmer, actress Danniella Westbrook and singer Jay Kay – hopes to make a difference and put an end to this barbaric practice once and for all.
Puppy farming is the mass commercial production of puppies purely for profit and without a thought for the welfare or happiness of the pup, breeding bitch or stud dogs. They are usually kept in horrific, dark, cramped conditions that are riddled with diseases, many of which are infectious, inbred and often incurable.
These poor pups are then sold en masse to pet shops, through newspaper ads or unauthorised websites and those who don’t die soon after reaching their new home usually usually require thousands of pounds worth of medical, surgical and/or behavioural treatment to fix them causing even more pain, suffering and heartbreak for both pups and families.
So bring your canine companion and join us to be part of the fight against puppy-farming so we can make a difference and stop the demand and instead promote rescue dog adoption and responsible breeding practices.
See you at PupAid!
