Animal rescue continues fight to change UK dog laws
Television presenter and Animal Rights campaigner Wendy Turner-Webster visited the Chancepixies Animal Rescue in West Hougham last weekto learn more about their fight to change Britain’s dog laws. The rescue is campaigning to unite breeders and rescue centres in bid to overhaul current legislation and put an end to Britain’s staggering stray dog problem.
With 70% of European countries enforcing compulsory dog licensing, Britain falls within the small minority of countries who have absolutely no controls in place. The charity has drafted a ‘Fit for Breeding’ legislation proposal which would see all breeders regulated and enforce a long-term level of care and responsibility.
Chancepixies already operates according to these principles and offers long-term support for people who rescue a dog from their centre. They provide bespoke training and behaviour programmes for all of the dogs in their care and offer ongoing guidance and support to new owners whenever required. ‘We’re champions of responsible dog ownership and breeding’ said Heidi, ‘we’re making a positive change to educate, rescue and act, it starts right here’.
