The date: Saturday, 17th December 2011
The venue: Pets At Home Carpark Carmarthen (Lovely Pets At Home have given us the use of a trolley for our event and they have our leaflets on their counter!)
The time: 10.30am – that’s the time we’ll set off for our Cage Push. If you can’t make it at 10.30 just come and find us later and join the procession.
The event: A “Cage Roll” through Carmarthen to highlight the plight of puppy farmed dogs and puppies in Wales.
Not so much a trolley dash as a leisurely walk. We’ll be pushing a trolley/cage through Carmarthen. In the cage will be a large toy dog surrounded by lots of little toy puppies. We will distribute our leaflets along the way. These are designed to help educate people about puppy farming and how easy it is to be fooled into buying a puppy that has actually started life in the most terrible conditions. And how the mother of the puppies remains behind to have yet more puppies. How puppies sold in pet shops come from puppy farms – mostly in Wales. It’s a serious message but done with a light touch that won’t make Christmas shoppers turn away, but instead want to engage with us and learn more. In fact many of us will be wearing dog hats – possibly even a full dog costume? We’ve even got revised lyrics to jingle bells to sing along the way…
