The Pet Advertising Advisory Group (PAAG) is calling on the public to join the fight against bad pet adverts, reporting anything suspicious they find while browsing online classified pages directly to the sites.
Cats Protection is a longstanding member of PAAG comprising leading animal welfare and specialist agencies across the UK. PAAG has been working on a pilot scheme with online sites to develop and agree a voluntary set of minimum standards to improve the welfare standards of online pet adverts.
Now that the pilot is over, PAAG would like responsible consumers to assist with its efforts – keeping an eye out when browsing the pet sections of classified websites for any adverts they spot that are misleading or illegal. To find out more and how to report adverts, watch this video.
