ANIMAL RESCUE LIVE: SUPERVET SPECIAL TONIGHT AT 8 PM
The Supervet, Professor Noel Fitzpatrick, is moved to tears when he uncovers the dark truth about the hidden, desperate and often short lives of animals born and being used for breeding in farms here in the UK, with no regard for any aspect of their welfare.
In order to shine a light on the conditions in which puppies are farmed and transported across the country, Noel traps himself in a cage to replicate their long and frightening journey to numerous places of sale - which can include innocuous-looking locations such as private homes, stables, farms and pet shops.
Noel Fitzpatrick says: “There is a silent crisis happening right under our noses – a dark secret in the otherwise joyful world of dogs. Tens of thousands of puppies are farmed and transported across the UK to be sold to unknowing families. Too young, too weak, too sick. They are woefully neglected and afraid. No one should be brought into the world in this way, without love and without certainty, with more care for the profit and not the pup. I want to show everyone this terrible journey from their eyes, travelling and experiencing the conditions and fears a young puppy would face. The more people know about this reality the more we can work together to stop puppy farming forever.”
