Last weekend it was time for the much awaited Pup Aid 2016! Back for another year at Primrose Hill, the event organised by Marc The TV Vet aims to raise awareness about the cruel practice of Puppy Farming and the horrific trade associated with it.
Pup Aid has become one of the highlights of the London Canine Calendar with a clear message…to not buy puppies from pet shops, always ask #wheresmum if getting a puppy from a breeder or better still to #adoptdontshop and adopt one of Britain’s thousands of rescue dogs looking for a new home.
Many of the dogs who come along to support Pup Aid are ex-puppy farm dogs themselves, previously exploited to make a profit for breeders. Listening to their stories was simply heartbreaking and although these dogs are now safe and loved, thousands more still endure lives of neglect and abuse on puppy farms.
The good news is that if turnout at this year’s event is anything to go by, the anti-puppy farming message is definitely gaining more and more support which is great news. In fact Pup Aid 2016 was quite the star-studded affair both for two-legged and four-legged celebrities…
Pup Aid is definitely different from the X-Factor Judges Houses! Sinitta, accompanied by the very cute Scarlett O’Hara (left) was at Pup Aid as a celebrity judge.
