Rejected petition Pass Lucy's Law and bring it info force. Lucy's Law will ban puppy farms in Wales.
Lucy's Law was introduced several years ago after a dog (Lucy) from a puppy farm had suffered a horrific life. Lucy's Law will ban puppy farms. This law has been discussed by ministers for the environment and rural affairs for years, but it keeps getting pushed to the back burner. It's time to stop further delays and get on with passing Lucys Law so existing puppy farms in Wales will be shut down, and no new puppy farms will be allowed to operate.
