On Sunday 26h August 2012, 30 people (over the course of the day) including local children and young people protested against Dogs4us Leeds. It is great to see young people taking action for animals – special thanks to them.
The store had hardly any customers all day, people turned away after receiving leaflets and even more turned away at the gates after merely seeing the protest. Staff were standing about with nothing to do and ordering themselves a pizza and drinking cups of tea all day.
Customers came up to campaigners to tell us the puppies were clearly too young to be responsibly sold, had no fresh water and there were lots of stories of sick puppies bought from Dogs4us.
Local children told us how the puppies always looked sad in Dogs4Us and were keen to join the protest themselves.
