Consultation description

We want to know what you think about plans to introduce a ban on the commercial third-party sales of puppies and kittens in England.

This will prevent pet shops, pet dealers, and other outlets from selling these animals in England unless they themselves have bred them.

We expect that this ban will improve welfare conditions for cats and dogs that are under six months old.
