Welcome to our website

Hi, the Heartstrings Website is back once again to attempt to throw some extra light on the ever-growing problem of PUPPY FARMING, DOG and CAT THEFT, IMPORTED PUPPIES from Eastern Europe and DOG FIGHTING.

Puppy farming is big business with dealers getting rich and leaving a trail of sick and dead puppies behind them. Puppies are taken away from their mothers too soon, when still too young, they are loaded into vans like cargo before travelling hundreds of miles to be sold on to unsuspecting owners. Pets coming in from Eastern Europe arrive in crates to Southern Ireland, then crosses over to Northern Ireland to Scotland and the ones still surviving to the UK at large.

You may get the breed of your choice cheaper that a recognised breeder’s price but it works out more in the long run. All these puppies were badly neglected since birth and if you have one, you will have to spend a lot of money on Vet’s fees to tackle various health problems including GENETIC DEFECTS. Even worse these poor animals struggle to make it passed 2 or 3 years leaving you to mourn a family pet that may have lived up to 11 – 15 years. Puppy Farmed Dogs and Imported dogs  is CRUEL, EXPENSIVE & HEARTBREAKING.

LUCY’S LAW is a law named after a King Charles spaniel called Lucy, who died in a puppy farm in 2016 due to mistreatment. In the wake of a campaign in England and Wales, Westminster and the Welsh government brought Lucy’s law into effect earlier this year. Now all eyes are on the SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT to follow suit. If not, Scotland could become a hub for puppy farming for all of the UK.

On our new page (Finding Missing Pets) we also deal with Pets Stolen for the purpose of baiting for dog-fighting. Many, “free to a good home” pets receive a similar fate. Dog Fighting makes its money in part from Stud Fees. We try to give you as many precautions as we can to keep your pets safe.

If you enjoy the music or find the articles enjoyable or useful, then a voluntary donation to your Local Animal Welfare FOOD BIN in your Supermarket(s), Pet Shop or Animal Charity Shop would be more than gratefully received!
