No Puppy and kitten sales

Sales of puppies and kittens in the UK will soon be forbidden in a bid to crack down on animal exploitation and abuse. The ban will include third party sales and pet shops.

When the law is implemented next year, Britons will have to deal directly with a breeder or with an animal rehoming center if they want to buy a kitten or a puppy younger than 6-months-old.

The move was announced by the Department of Environment Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) following overwhelming public support for the legislation during consultations.

It is hoped the procedure may make animal lovers think twice when deciding if they should acquire a new fluffy family member. Holidays are a popular time for pet purchases, however, many are either eventually abandoned or given to rehoming centers.
