LUCY'S LAW: IMMEDIATE BAN ON THE SALE OF PUPPIES BY PET SHOPS AND OTHER THIRD-PARTY COMMERCIAL DEALERS
EDM #695
Tabled 14 December 2017
2017-19 Session
That this House calls for the immediate ban on the sale of puppies by pet shops and other third­party commercial dealers; recognises that implementing Lucy's Law will be a major step forward in putting an end to unnecessary animal cruelty and helping to eradicate forms of irresponsible dog breeding and selling, such as puppy farming, smuggling and trafficking; notes that irresponsible breeding practices, such as puppy farms, are enabled and even encouraged by the third-party trade in puppies that are sold away from their mothers and place of birth in locations such as pet shops; and acknowledges that Lucy's Law will help to protect breeding dogs and puppies by making all breeders accountable and transparent, ensuring consistency with the Government's advice that purchasers should see puppies interacting with their mother in the place that they were born.
