Don’t Buy a Pet Online

Gillian Bird of the DSPCA talks to Noel McGuinness about the importance of not buying pets online. She says that following the recent upsurge of incidents of puppy trafficking, the DSPCA urges people to “Adopt Don’t Buy” a pet this Christmas. This appeal is part of their campaign to prevent trafficking and to provide a second chance to the many pets at the DSPCA rescue centre. She says that people should be aware of the conditions many of these animals are raised in. You can read tips on how to avoid a puppy farm dog on the DSPCA website – see
