1312. Marc Abraham
Marc Abraham, from Brighton, is the TV vet who successfully led the Lucy’s Law campaign to ban the commercial third-party trade in puppies and kittens, which are often supplied by breeders raising animals in appalling conditions.
Marc also founded the charity ‘PupAid’ in 2009, which campaigns against the cruelty of puppy farming, as well as working towards improving dog welfare and promoting rescue pet adoption, as well as establishing the All Party Parliamentary Dog Advisory Welfare Group in Westminster.
In a personal letter to Marc, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:
“I know you do this with no thought of praise or reward, but allow me to offer my own recognition of how you successfully led the Lucy’s Law campaign to ban the commercial third-party trade in puppies and kittens, and your continued work through ‘PupAid’ to campaign against the cruelty of puppy farming.”
