Stop the puppy traffickers!

Puppy trading is big business with dealers exploiting a lack of enforcement and making huge profits by bringing over large numbers of highly sought after pedigree puppies from other EU countries and selling them over the internet.

This can have a serious impact on the welfare of these puppies, and on those unknowingly buying sick puppies and lining the pockets of organised criminals!

We have produced a new report: Pushing at an open door - how the present UK controls on rabies are failing (PDF 236KB) highlighting the growing problem of the illegal import of puppies for sale and the risk of rabies returning to the UK as lack of enforcement at our borders is allowing sick and underage puppies in.

Act now, urge the Government to stop the puppy dealers!
