Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, joined Dogs Trust, the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, to celebrate its 125th anniversary at a recent House of Commons reception.
Dogs Trust, was founded in 1891 and the charity has been instrumental in campaigning for dog welfare for the past 125 years.
“I am very pleased to support Dogs Trust in raising awareness of the current issues facing the nation’s dogs. With a family dog myself, their welfare is something I feel very strongly about and I commend the incredible efforts Dogs Trust has gone to in a bid to improve the lives dogs across the country over the past 125 years.
“Over the coming 12 months I know that one of the main focuses for Dogs Trust will be the issue of irresponsible breeding. There is currently little to no enforcement on the breeding and sale of dogs in the UK and this is something which needs to change.
“I pledge to help do my bit to drive change for dogs over the next 12 months and beyond.”
