MP joins Dogs Trust campaign to stop puppy smuggling

Henry recently attended a drop-in session hosted by the Dogs Trust in Parliament where the charity was asking MPs to join its campaign to end the cruel practice of puppy smuggling.

The Dogs Trust has been investigating this problem since 2014 with its reports revealing truly shocking evidence of the Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) being exploited by illegal puppy importers.

Commenting Henry said: “The Dogs Trust has unveiled a horrendous trade that has been growing over the past few years and we now have the opportunity to make a positive change to stop this practice. I was completely shocked by the findings of all four of the reports and I am incredibly proud to support the case to bring an end to puppy smuggling with the introduction of tighter controls and the need for much stronger penalties to deter this horrific crime.”
