    I have been asked to post this by the new organisers of the protests against the sale of puppies at Petworld so that they can remain safely anonymous. The next peaceful protest is on Saturday 16th April at 1 o’clock. The address is Orpington Bypass, Badgers Mount, Sevenoaks, Kent, TN14 7AP. This is 5 mins from Jct 5 of the M25. Please join them or support them anyway you can.

    Yesterday I heard the very good news that Petsville in Kingston is closed. We are hoping that this is permanent rather than temporary. This proves that these protests and campaigns can and do make a difference. Very well done to johnderondon on here for all his hard work and effort to bring this about.

    I hope that there will be a big turnout at Petworld.

    Just looking at this again as it is this coming Saturday and it should be Jct 4 of the M25. I hope the weather stays as good as it is now and that they get a good turnout.

    Unfortunately I am too far away, is there any online petition that can be signed?

    The organisers had a petition before to Sevenoaks council and they tightened up their conditions for the license to sell puppies. There is no specific petition now but Puppy Love Campaigns are asking people to write to their MPs against the sale of puppies in pet shops and also to sign an EDM against it.

    I am shocked at the idea of going to a shop and picking up a puppy.

    Me being very niave but have never seen a shop where you could walk in and buy a puppy.

    The way the are listed on there website just like any other product in the store is quite shocking.
