Roch PR worked with Chancepixies on its campaign to end council licensing of puppy farms in the UK. The charity campaigned for animal welfare legislation to be properly applied by licensing authorities to provide all dogs with a suitable environment, the right to exhibit natural behaviour and the right to be protected from pain, suffering and disease. The campaign aimed to end the use of domestic pets as breeding stock to help stop puppy farming and prevent vulnerable and emotionally unstable dogs being sold on to unsuspecting consumers. The Chancepixies team reached the High Court with their campaign and is part of a network that makes up the CARIAD campaign to #stoppuppyfarming.
