A group of animal rights activists are threatening to launch a campaign of “animal genocide” against the UK if the government does not end the sale of the country’s beloved pet dogs and cats.
The Animal Liberation Front (ALF) on Wednesday announced its campaign on social media, calling for an “animal boycott” of Britain.
“We want to take the UK off the UK list of countries that sell dogs and pets, and that is why we have launched an Animal Liberation Campaign in the United Kingdom,” ALF co-founder Lucy Dickson told The Independent on Wednesday.
“We want Britain to end the dog and cat trade, and bring in animals that are raised in homes that are loving, socialized and healthy.”
Dickson, who has worked for a number of animal-related causes, said she had been following the British pet trade for years and had been “furious” when she was informed by the government last week that dogs and other pets could soon be on sale.
The Government has been scrambling to end a decades-long practice of selling the dogs and cat of ordinary people as pets and has said it will begin legal proceedings against the sellers in a bid to stop the illegal trade.
“The dogs and cuddly friends that we have raised for so many years are not animals.
They are the property of our people and our communities, and it is not fair to turn them into disposable products to be sold to other people in an attempt to turn a profit,” she said.
“There are so many animals in this country, so many lives that are lost every year, that are directly related to the sale and consumption of dogs and the cats that we love.”
This government is doing nothing to protect them.
“In recent years, Britain has witnessed a rise in the demand for animals in the pet industry, which has led to a boom in the number of animals in captivity.
Animal rights campaigners are calling on the Government to end its practice of allowing dogs and kittens to be bred in the first place, and for a ban on the sale or breeding of the animals.”
The campaign is currently running in the U.K., but it has been endorsed by more than 1,000 other activists and charities. “
This campaign will bring an end to the pet trade, end the puppy mill and end the abuse of animals.”

“I think it’s really a bit like a social media campaign,” Denton said.
“There are people who are really passionate about it.
There are people that have been through it, and there are people in the animal-protection industry who have been working in the industry for decades.”
Animal rights activist and former U.S. president Jimmy Carter, who famously opposed the importation of dog and pig products into the U., is also backing the campaign.
“For me, the main issue is not about dogs or cats.
It’s about the cruelty that’s taking place in the marketplace and the suffering that’s being inflicted on animals,” Carter said in a statement on Wednesday night.
“These dogs and their owners have sacrificed so much for our society, and we are a society that values human life, and animals should be protected.”
“This is a really important moment in our country’s history, and I think it will have an impact,” he added.
