Lucy's Law came into force this week but as a result of this brilliant new legislation, dogs and cats used for breeding are being abandoned.

This week, we wrote about Lucy’s Law, the new regulations that signal the end to unscrupulous pet breeding in England. Thanks to these laws, puppies and kittens will now be born, raised and sold in safe, sanitary conditions.

Abandoned breeding dogs

Unfortunately, the breeders are showing their colours yet again by abandoning these animals to rescues. Many of the cats and dogs that are dumped after being forced to breed have a host of health problems and countless rescue centres don't have the resources to help them.

Thankfully, the charity Friends of Animals Wales are a little different and are working to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome these animals.

Charities are struggling

The charity has previously reached its funding targets thanks to charity shops and fundraising events but due to the current closures and restrictions because of Covid-19, these funding sources have all but dried up.

Marc Abraham wants to help again and has set up a GoFundMe page for the charity in the hopes of allowing them to continue the wonderful work they do until the crisis is over and life returns to normal.

How you can help

If you're not able to donate, then a simple share with friends or family members you think may be interested is more than enough.

In the meantime, we wish Marc and his team all the best and thank them for taking on the mission.
