Mark Pritchard heralds Puppy Sale Ban

Wrekin MP, Mark Pritchard, is celebrating today after the government announced it will take action to shut down puppy farms.

The MP, known for his high profile animal welfare campaigns, also praised well known tv vet Marc Abraham’s for his animal welfare campaign, Lucy’s Law.

Mr Pritchard said:

“As someone who has campaigned for years on this issue, I welcome the announcement by the government that it will finally ban the sale of puppies and kittens by pet shops, online dealers and other third party sellers. This is a huge victory for all those who campaign for improving animal welfare standards in the UK and beyond.”
