Lucy's Law comes into force


After years of campaigning Lucy's Law was passed in the summer of 2019, and became enforceable from April 6th this year. It ensures that puppies and kittens can only be sold in the place in which they were born, and in the presence of their mother.

 The new law is a result of years of tireless campaigning from Pup Aid, spearheaded by Marc Abraham who stopped at nothing to make this a reality.
