Petition to Sevenoaks Council to revoke/NOT renew licence for Select Puppies Pet Shop to sell puppies
Puppy farms are like factory farms where dogs are bred purely for profit. The dogs are normally bred too often, many are unhealthy, and often live in unbearably poor conditions. The puppies are generally removed from their mothers far too early and sent by rail or van to ‘dealers’ or pet shops in the big cities to satisfy the public’s demands. Many are severely traumatised by the transition, and some do not make it alive. Do not buy a puppy or a dog from these sources, as they will have had the worst possible start in life, and are far more likely to have health and temperament problems. Many ‘puppy farm’ puppies come with complete pedigrees, however, a pedigree in itself, is not necessarily an indication of quality. ‘Dealers’ are agents for puppy farms. They buy puppies and sell them on, advertising them in newspapers and magazines, often masquerading as breeders. If an advert lists more than one breed of puppy for sale, then the person placing it is probably a dealer (but not always). Ask if you can see the mother with the puppies, and if they make an excuse about why the mother cannot be seen, do not buy a puppy from them. Select Puppies in Sundridge do not disclose where their puppies come from only saying that they are from 'licenced breeders'. No REPUTABLE Breeder would EVER sell thier puppies via a third party and Puppy Farms are in fact licenced by local councils. Some puppies from this shop have been sold only for thier new owners to find they have bought a sick animal, two have died. Please sign this petition and help us stop the trading of dogs in this way.
