Around 30 people in Leeds and 14 in Manchester protested Dogs4us sale of puppy farm puppies on the 16th of September as part of worldwide Anti-Puppy Farming Day.
In Leeds local children joined the protests bringing hand-made banners of their own.
Customers turned away and tons of public support was received by the campaign . Dogs4us is losing more and more business because of it’s choice to support the cruel battery farming of puppies.
Activists were once again back at Dogs4us Leeds for one of the smaller weekly demos. The store is always very empty but this time it was even emptier as 2 customers turned away after hearing the truth about Dogs4us!
Here is a report from the ground; “Today’s demo at Dogs4Us Leeds was the best yet! Two potential customers turned away, one of whom looked sick to her stomach upon learning of the horrors of the puppy farming industry. Upon chanting “One customer turned away”, the manager came out to keep her beady eye on us, but she didn’t say anything – after all what can she say to justify what she does?”
Next Sunday (22nd July) is the monthly demo which will see between 20-30 activists from around the country protesting against the Manchester store. Please make sure you are one of them! Full event details can be found here.
