Quotes

Lord Black said: "I am delighted to be introducing into parliament the first piece of legislation specifically designed to protect the welfare of cats."
"The effects of neutering during the first year of a dog's life, especially in larger breeds, undoubtedly reflects the vulnerability of their joints to the delayed closure of long bone growth plates, when neutering removes the gonadal, or sex hormones" Prof Hart said
...However, resolving these issues is normally a "lengthy and costly process", they said, due to the " inadequacy " of existing legislation and "irresponsible owners [who] do not comply with equine identification laws, meaning they are not held to account"
"We strongly believe a better understanding of these links would help to protect victims, both human and animal. As part of the Links Group, Dogs Trust is working to raise awareness among all professionals in the hope agencies will work together to help prevent related cases from going undetected."
