Oh boy, this is going to be an emotional one. 

Dogs Trust Ireland have released a new video for their #StopKeepingMum campaign.

The campaign aims to stop the suffering associated mothers of dogs on puppy farms.

Their website states: 

The painful-to-watch video shines a light on the treatment of mother dogs used for breeding on puppy farms.

The first thing that will hit you is the stench. And once your eyes adjust to the darkness you’ll see them. They’re kept in cages, covered in their own faeces and soaked in urine.

They have no bedding and limited access to fresh water. They are nameless mothers who have never known daylight.

Dogs Trust Ireland advises people to “make sure you see mum and puppy interacting, and be concerned if excuses are made as to why you cannot. Seeing mum with her puppy ensures their breeding environment is open for public inspection. If you suspect a puppy has come from a puppy farm don’t buy it.”

Dogs Trust would also urge all of those seeking to buy a puppy/dog online to ensure the website has been approved by the Irish Pet Advertising Advisory Group (IPAAG) of which Dogs Trust are founding members. 

Further information about IPAAG and Minimum Welfare Standards is available on
