Raising awareness about Better Lives for Dogs at PupAid 2016

We were at PupAid 2016 in London to raise awareness about our Better Lives for Dogs campaign.

Now in its 6th year, PupAid is designed to raise awareness of Puppy Farming and encourages owners to adopt a rescue dog, or to buy from a responsible breeder, where you can see the pup with its' mum, healthy in their natural environment.

We had a lot of lovely conversations with our supporters and also with people that hadn’t heard of us. We talked about how we have given out one million vaccinations and our goal to protect 50 million dogs by 2020 as well as giving out another one million vaccinations.

Find out more about our Better Lives for Dogs campaign here and PupAid here and check out all the lovely pictures from the day below.
