BOYCOTT DOGS4US HOLDS PROTEST FOR LUCY'S LAW

Boycott Dogs4Us protesters held a demonstration outside the Salford branch of Dogs4Us today to support the campaign for Lucy's Law, which would ban the sale of puppies in pet shops and through third party dealers.

The Dogs4Us branch, on Agecroft Road, is half demolished as it has planning permission to change its use to a builder's yard but is still currently trading.

Protesters from Boycott Dogs4Us gathered outside the Salford branch of Dogs4Us on Agecroft Road this afternoon, calling for an end to puppy farming and supporting the huge campaign for Lucy's Law, which would ban the third party sale of puppies.

The Lucy's Law campaign by CARIAD, Lisa Garner and campaigning vet, Marc Abraham, founder of PupAid, has garnered well over 100,000 signatures on an online petition* and, as a result, is set to be debated in Parliament next month. The Government is also currently taking evidence until 2nd May for a review on the puppy sale ban proposal.

At today's demonstration, Luke Beevers, of Boycott Dogs4Us, explained the importance of backing Lucy's Law...

"It's a law to ban the third party sale of puppies, which means puppies sold in pet shops and other third party dealers such as garden centres and online" he said "People would then have to go direct to the breeder or rescue organisation, and if they go to the breeder they can see the conditions in which puppies are bred.

"People have no idea of what conditions puppies are bred in because all they see is the conditions in the store, so they don't know whether their mothers and fathers are languishing in these horrible puppy farms in places like Wales" he added "We've been campaigning for Lucy's Law for about six years now, along with our friends at PupAid and CARIAD, and we are getting closer to our goal. But we've got to carry on campaigning."

Today's demonstration was certainly popular, with passing cars beeping horns in support. Meanwhile, the actual Dogs4Us site is now half demolished as it has planning permission for a change of use to a builder's yard (see previous Salford Star article - click here). However, as Luke said, while it keeps trading, Boycott Dogs4Us will carry on campaigning...

Pleased to hear that the planning permission has come through to change the use of this building. Hopefully they can now focus on a ligitimate business that does involve harming animals.

I took them to court and won the case It was not about the money it was about my puppy Lucie Lou she was not 12 weeks old as they said she was around 8 weeks old taken from her mummy so young and the vet who works there pumped her with Pavo Virus through the injection she had 263 titas which killed her as I found out it was a live injection, Lucies Lou died a week later. The pain is still raw after so many years, DOGS4US are a limited company so can change ownership at any time, THE COUNCIL need to step in and say enough is enough But they will not So please find out why, WHO do they know at the Council that lets them carry on after so many years of trading and selling puppies from a Farm, They also incinerate puppies that die at the back of the building This has been going on for far to many many years.

Thanks for supporting this issue Salford Star. If we truly are a nation of dog lovers, then we need to be aware of the truth. We need to make sure our pets are not a result of cruelty and exploitation. Better to home a rescue animal.

I can remember this Animal farm from the 1970's always having a bad name. It was on the Esther Ratzen show more than once. It has changed it's name a couple of times but still the same owners. Why do the RSPCA and Salford City Council let them get away with it. Now time to close the place down because it will only changed its name again and put up another sign saying New Owners as usual.

Is there so little going on in Salford that you have to report on this all the time. It's so boring.
