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.
Selling puppies under the age of eight weeks will become illegal under the new plans.
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.
It is hard to believe over 4 years since I raised petition 41206 demanding Moran’s Market closes and the public torture of dogs and cats ends officials have ruled this is a possibility.
Our charity World Protection for Dogs and Cats in the Meat Trade has campaigned tirelessly outside the Korean Embassies and supported the incredible efforts of local protest group DASOM who spent the entire summer outside this market.This really is testament to how change comes from within.http://m.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20161213000847#cb
It has been a year since The Daily Mirrorran an article raising doubts about Mrs Yang, the Chinese Woman who defrauded the public and abuses animals she claims to have rescued.
Trolls including this man Daniel Allen who has stalked me online have tried to use this article to promote this animal abuser.Allen, went as far as to fabricate a complete lie that he was ‘hounded” for asking questions. He also stole my photo and placed it on his blog.Creepy behaviour from a man I have never met or spoken to.
I asked the Independent Press Complaints Commission to Investigate and they contacted the Mirror who confirmed in black and white DANIEL ALLEN LIED and they had never intended to cast doubt on the charity. Daniel Allen for some reason continues to promote his libel.
The Mirror intends to publish a statement to confirm the law on fundraising which will further discredit this man. In an email to me dated June 2nd 2016 Helen Odia confirmed.”we would be happy to publish a clarification to set out Ms de Cadenet’s position in relation to the legal point”
Odd behaviour from Daniel Allen . But a man who is neither a doctor nor vet who insists in calling himself a ‘Dr’ when it is purely an academic title gained from teaching 1st year Geography at a former polytechnic beyond odd.
Despite his irrational hatred towards me and our charity we have gone from strength to strength and have built a wonderful shelter in China where 420 dogs and 36 cats rescued from the Dog Meat Trade are safe and well.
