Campaign to stop Gumtree selling Dogs

I don’t intend to use this blog for anything political, but sometimes I read something that I feel I have to share with others, on the assumption that you’ll be as horrified as me that this kind of unneccesary suffering is being created.

While I was aware of the problem of dogs being sold to irresponsible owners and then being dumped and put down, I was not aware that sites like Gumtree were helping this sick trade by advertising dogs for sale for as little as £1.

Here is a link to the original article in the Guardian today..

and a link to a Facebook campaign to put an end to this practice…
