The Boycott Dogs4Us campaign is committed to exposing Dogs4Us sale of sick and dying puppies sourced from cruel puppy farms. We will continue to campaign until Dogs4Us stop selling puppies. Learn more on our About Dogs4Us page.
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.
“By the time I got to this pup i was already crying , her innocence and imprisonment broke my heart , note the filth around her” – Investigator
“Please help us – these 2 didnt move , dont know how long I’ll grieve over this but I feel so hurt inside.” – Investigator
“Shakey photo because i was crying , this pup looks sick” – Investigator
“Runny infected eyes” – Investigator
“Note the lack of bedding a small amount of sawdust on the floor just like Harlan [Harlan is a breeder for animal experiments known for poor animal welfare]” – Investigator
Dogs4us needs closing down once and for all. Join the campaign!
After receiving a number of interesting communications from a number of individuals connected to Dogs4us and close to owner Ray McCadden we thought it was about time we publicly appealed for more whistle-blowers.
If you work for Dogs4us, or have done in the past, or know someone that does, we want to hear from you. We need information on the suppliers of the puppies, Dogs4us suppliers in general, staff members , management and more.
We will pay for good information. Why not earn some extra cash on the side? We protect your identity totally.
And to the rest of the Dogs4us staff, you cant trust anyone. Remember the staff member, the ‘friend’, the family member, the customer that is claiming to hate us protesters could be one of those already assisting us. Remember there are people you know providing information right now, possibly on you.
