NY Times article worth reading. In my next post I will blog on the impact for our rescues and pets.
Just when i had lost all faith in the Conservatives they are finally speaking out for the dogs and cats used for food and fur. ( Only took us 6 years of lobbying)
We are pleased to support the UK parliament and the proposed bill to ban the sale and transportation of dog meat in the UK
The incredible Jim Shannon MP spoke out firmly against the heinous dog meat trade. Watch his heartfelt speech here:
This was followed by highly Informative talk by Bill Wiggins MP, who was equally passionately about ending the dog meat trade.
Last but not least, Giles Watling MP who took the leadin the debate.
Our CEO provided yesterday’s meeting with some information about the cat meat trade and urged MP’s to take into account the fact dog and cat fur was being sold in London. Our Charity is working to engage them with our WHO/OIE contacts, as well as inviting them to attend the UN under the umbrella of our Charity who have Special Status as Consultants the UN Eco Soc Council.

It is hard to believe it has been six years since we founded the global NoToDogMeat campaign and a charity called World Protection for Dogs and Cats in the Meat Trade. Totally unique a charity with Objects not just to end suffering to dogs and cats but stop them being skinned and blowtorched alive.
When we first campaigned against Yulin and even when I went there to face the horror hardly everyone knew about it. The biggest response we got in London was
“Well we don’t eat dogs here do we? ” What people did not realise was there was actually no law to prevent people from doing that.
Now finally following the example set in the USA the UK is finally debating a bill to Lead By Example and send a message #CrueltyIsNotCool
We have come a long way since my e-petition in 2012 Urging the UK Government to ACT when they responded to say there was little they can do.
Mr Zhao rescued 11 Samoyeds from a BREEDER! The breeder could not find buyers, so was about to sell them to the MEAT TRADE!
Mr Zhao negotiated their release, but now has 11 extra mouths to feed! Please help us feed them! http://www.notodogmeat.com/donate.php
If you would like to adopt one of these, its about £800 to bring one back from China! Please get in touch!
The accusation on google by hate bloggers that I “stole a film” is FALSE
- There is no such blog post on Google.
- As you will see below the person who they allege made the claim confirms this information is inaccurate and defamatory.
- Ms Provatas also confirms that continuous republication of the lie with her phone number and email forced her to change her numbers and has caused her professional embarrassment and distress.
New rules to crack down on backstreet breeders
Defra unveils plans to reform dog breeding licensing rules
Tougher dog breeding licensing rules will be introduced as part of a suite of reforms to crack down on ‘backstreet breeders’, the government has confirmed today (2 February).
Selling puppies under the age of eight weeks will become illegal under the new plans, and anyone breeding and selling three or more litters of puppies a year will require a formal licence. ‘Backstreet breeders’ and larger commercial breeders will therefore be required to meet strict welfare criteria in order to get a licence, Defra says.
Breeders who do not adhere to the rules will face an unlimited fine or up to six months in prison.
To update current legislation, anyone trading commercially in pets online will need to be properly licensed. The government’s plans also cover the licensing of pet shops, boarding houses and riding stables, and a single ‘animal activities licence’ will be introduced to improve the process and make enforcement easier.
Pet shops will be required to give buyers written information about the species they buy, including exotic pets, which will provide details of the five welfare needs owners must meet under the Animal Welfare Act.
Defra also urged pet owners to make sure their pet’s microchip is up to date. According to the latest figures, 94 per cent of dogs have been fitted with microchips, nine months after compulsory microchipping of dogs became law.
