EDM number 467 in 2007-08, proposed by Andrew Rosindell on 04/12/2007.

That this House notes the Dogs Trust's famous slogan, A Dog is For Life, Not Just for Christmas, which was created in 1978 by the charity's Chief Executive, Clarissa Baldwin, at a time when thousands of people were buying puppies to give to family and friends as Christmas presents, resulting in puppies being abandoned in the New Year; recognises that despite many years of campaigning by the Dogs Trust, there still exists a problem of dogs being given as Christmas presents; further recognises that the Dogs Trust has seen that the most popular time of year for pups to be abandoned is at the start of the Easter holidays, when pups who were given as Christmas presents have grown up to be big, boisterous dogs; further notes the problem of dogs being given as Christmas presents is still a major concern, in a country where there were at least 105,068 stray and abandoned dogs taken in by local authorities last year; and wholeheartedly supports the Dogs Trust in its determination to ensure that one day all dogs are cared for by responsible owners, and have a home for life.

This motion has been signed by a total of 59 MPs.
