Waterside Action Group WAG introduce Victoria Stillwell as new patron
LEADING ANTI-PUPPY farm group, WAG, is honoured and privileged that Victoria Stillwell, presenter of ‘It’s Me Or The Dog’ has agreed to become its Patron.
Ken McKie on behalf of WAG said: ‘"This is an exciting announcement for us. To have someone of the standing of Victoria Stillwell, who also has the experience of dealing with the behavioural problems of dogs, bought from puppy farms, as our Patron is wonderful news. Victoria can add a new dimension to the campaign and we can express our delight that she has agreed to be our Patron.’
Victoria Stillwell commented: "I am honoured to become a patron of the Waterside Action Group and join in the fight against puppy dealers and puppy farming. It appals me that this despicable practice still exists and it needs to stop. People must be made aware that these dealers and farms exist and that puppies suffer needlessly because of human greed. These puppy farmers must be stopped and the public needs to know the truth.
‘As a trainer and behaviour advisor I have encountered many dogs that have come from such places. Apart from the medical problems from which many of these dogs suffer, the isolation, lack of crucial socialisation and in many cases removal from the mother before weaning causes physical and mental scars that can affect the dog for the rest of its life.
‘Peaceful protest and education is the way to go and that is why the Waterside Action Group is so vital. I support this group because puppy farming needs to stop now!’
