As a result of watching the news items on the appalling conditions in puppy farms last week I emailed Carmarthenshire County Council to ask what they intended to do re puppy farms and to give my views.
I received a 'round robbin' email back today. The one pertinent piece of information in it was Quote " Many of you have called for commercial dog breeding to be banned, but that can only be achieved through a change in legislation probably at National government level"
I am not so naive as to think that all commercial dog breeding can be banned - as there is such a great demand for puppies and the really good and caring breeders only produce a few litters or only one or two.
But something has to be done about puppy farms, and I know that Karlin knows a lot about that - but who should we be lobbying to make a chage in legislation? Would it be our MPs or is there someone more approriate in government that I can contact?
Sorry if this sounds a bit stupid , but I've not done anything like this before, but I want to try and do something!
