Dogs4Us owner Raymond McCadden has applied for planning permission to change Dogs4Us Salford branch into a builders merchant! Boycott Dogs4Us have held off making the announcement while facts were checked. It remains unknown if he plans to relocate the business and the planning process could take some time. However, we are now in a position to express conscious optimism.
Campaigning will continue until both Dogs4Us stores close down for good.
We would like to thank all those that have supported us in this campaign against Dogs4Us in particular C.A.R.I.A.D, Pup Aid, the Linton protesters (SayNoToPetShopPups) and the journalistic skills of the Salford Star.
Boycott Dogs4Us has submitted written evidence to The Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Sub-Committee’s Animal Welfare: Domestic Pets Inquiry.
Our submission highlights:
- Dogs4Us and their involvement with animal cruelty.
- The links between pet shops, such as Dogs4Us, and the puppy farm trade.
- The research that shows the poor health outcomes for pet shop puppies.
- The fact you cannot see puppies with their mothers in a pet shop and how this contradicts Government advice.
Our submission recommends:
- A total ban on the sale of puppies by third-party dealers such as pet shops.
- Until that happens, regulation via changes to pet shop licence conditions.
Our full submission can be found on the UK Parliament website here.
Staff from a practice used by Dogs4Us in Leeds has been convicted of animal cruelty. This is no surprise to us as Dogs4Us is known for selling puppies from cruel puppy farms and has been exposed by Sky News and Channel 5.
Shockingly Facebook has decided to block access to this information to all UK members, effectively censoring the truth about the link between puppy farm pet shop Dogs4Us and the convicted animal abusers at Armley Vets.
Here is the video from inside the vets that Dogs4Us and Facebook don’t want you to see:
Here is the censorship emails from Facebook:
Nicola Robinson who was the manager of Dogs4us Leeds for 4 years has come out against her former employer. Speaking to the Boycott Dogs4us campaign via Twitter, Robinson revealed that Dogs4us does indeed source its puppies from puppy farms, despite the company’s claims to the contrary.
Robinson also spoke of her heartbreak at seeing puppies die while at the store.
Additionally a vets where 30 dogs and cats were seized and two staff arrested as part of a RSPCA investigation in March this year is stated to be a Dogs4Us vet.
Thank you Nicola Robinson for speaking up for the dogs, your words will help close Dogs4Us once and for all.
Sad eyes and empty lives of puppies inside the Dogs4us puppy warehouse in Leeds shot in October 2012. Forced to live in small, sometimes dirty, pens with little environmental enrichment these so-called pedigree dogs (that are not registered with the Kennel Club or any respectable body but rather a private company with links to the owner of Dogs4us) are warehoused until they can be sold for a tidy profit.
While these conditions are hardly ideal they are of course nothing compared to the sickening conditions the mothers of these puppies are kept in at the puppy farms Dogs4us source their puppies from.
