Sale Of Puppies In Pet Shops

EDM number 35 in 2014-15, proposed by Naomi Long on 04/06/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Animal welfare and Animals.

That this House recognises that dogs are not a commodity and should be bought only from licensed breeders; notes that puppies sold in pet shops or by other third parties are almost exclusively bred on puppy farms; and, given the fact the Pet Animals Act 1951 is out of date, calls on the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to ensure that secondary legislation to the Animal Welfare Act 2006 prohibits the sale of puppies in pet shops.

This motion has been signed by a total of 35 MPs.
