More good news! Do you remember this?
This proves how what you do makes a real difference to the lives of animals, if you signed BUAV's petition back in October you were one of the 28,000 people who encouraged the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Eric Pickles, to reject plans by Bantin & Kingman Ltd to build a breeding facility in Grimston, Yorkshire with the aim of supplying beagles for experiments in the UK and overseas.
BUAV's petition contained over 28,000 signatures which were collected in just over two weeks, they submitted this along with a document explaining why there was no justification for another dog breeding facility and although Bantin & Kingman appealed the decision Eric Pickles has declined the planning application thus saving the lives of thousands of beagles.
