P-05-915 Call for better enforcement of puppy farms in Wales



This petition was submitted by Laura Clays having collected a total of 112 signatures.


Text of Petition             

Following on from the disturbing footage of puppy farms in Wales we need to see greater enforcement of the licensing of puppy farms carried out by local councils in Wales.



Closing puppy farms that do not meet the required criteria

Prosecuting puppy farms that put animal welfare in danger

Greater transparency on regulated visits - there should be public records like those published by the Food Standards Agency on the hygiene ratings of restaurants. The public should be able to review the inspection records.




This petition was considered completed by the Petitions Committee at its meeting on 13/09/2021.


The Committee considered the correspondence received and noted that the Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (Wales) Regulations 2021 had been passed by the Senedd in March 2021. The Committee therefore congratulated campaigners, and agreed to close the petition.
