To mark Puppy Farm Awareness Day, next Saturday 16th September, Boycott Dogs4Us is staging two local protests, the first a rally in Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester, between 2pm and 3:30pm, with speakers and leafleting.

This is followed between 4pm and 5pm with a protest outside the Dogs4Us store on Agecroft Road, Salford. The events have been called to 'raise awareness about the heartless, profit driven puppy farm industry and Dogs4Us' involvement in it'...

This week, the Daily Mirror ran a story about a Labrador puppy that died five days after being bought from Dogs4Us and diagnosed with parvovirus... "They offered me a refund, as if that's any consolation" said Donna, the puppy's short-lived owner "I went to Dogs4Us to speak to a manager or owner, but nobody was able to see me apart from employees. I was told on numerous occasions there is nobody to see me. I wanted answers from an owner. It wasn't to be."

Dogs4Us told the Mirror that the puppy's death was "out of our control". The Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee has recommended a ban on third party sales of puppies by pet shops and online retailers, and government advice is not to buy a puppy without first seeing it with its mother.

"The process of selling through a third party seller has an unavoidable negative impact upon the welfare of puppies" stated EFRA "Dogs should only be available from licensed, regulated breeders or approved re-homing organisations."

Aran Mathai, Chairman and Founder of Boycott Dogs4Us says: "In recent weeks there have been numerous cases of dogs that have been bought from Dogs4Us becoming seriously ill or dying. This Puppy Farm Awareness Day, we call on Salford Council to take action against what we believe are the animal abusers and rip-off merchants that are Dogs4Us."

Perhaps T/S, Salford Council & Animal Protection are being duped when they do their licencing visits? If evidence to the contrary can be obtained by an individual, then a Private Prosecution can be pursued - after all, I understand - but am ready to be corrected - that RSPCA Prosecutions are classed as PRIVATE actiona under the Law. Such an action can be followed by any citizen. There are many strange and arcane laws surrounding animal welfare eg the requirement for a counter in a Pet shop for it to be regarded as such. All creatures - including humans - deserve the best start in life.

If the government are saying dogs should only be sold from registered breeders and with the mother effectively available to be seen. Question,if this is the case why are Salford council still allowing them to trade. They must have a licence to trade.without it they can't.So to stop this cruelty,to both the familiar and more significant, these poor dogs.But more so for the wellbeing of the poor puppies.If trading standards and the RSPCA are not involved I would like to know WHY.
