TV vet Marc Abraham launches ‘Where’s Mum?’ campaign

puppy farming

Pup Aid founder and TV vet Marc Abraham has launched a petition to help stop the practice of puppy and kitten farming in the UK.

The petition calls for a ban on the sale of puppies and kittens without the mother being present.  The cause has already received massive support, with celebrities including Brian May and Ricky Gervais getting involved. Marc says: “Everyday another celebrity comes along asking what they can do to help.

Marc launched Pup Aid – a community interest company – in 2010, having seen an influx of puppies coming into emergency vet clinics suffering from parvovirus, leaving their owners with vets bills of up to £2000.

Upon further investigation, Marc found that the animals were coming from a local puppy farm. He said: “I found that these people were really good at coming up with answers people would believe.

After launching the ‘Where’s Mum?’ campaign three weeks ago, the petition has already received 30,000 signatures, but needs 100,000 before the issue can be brought before parliament
