Vets and celebrities campaign against ‘petfishing’

Vets, charities and celebrities have come together with a newly-launched government campaign to warn prospective pet owners  against unknowingly buying pets from “unscrupulous” sellers following a rise in pet demand. 

An open letter signed by celebrities including  Kirsty Gallacher, Paul O’Grady and Amanda Holden, and  supported by charities including Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, the Blue Cross, Cats Protection, Dogs Trust and the RSPCA, is calling on the public to research sellers thoroughly prior to their purchase.
