The National Dog Warden Association and buying and selling website are working together to prevent puppy farmers or other irresponsible breeders attempting to use the website to sell their dogs or other animals inappropriately. 

Preloved has agreed a reporting mechanism that should any NDWA members have any concerns regarding an advert on its website relating to the sale of animals then it will investigate fully, and work with the NDWA members in dealing with the concerns raised. 

Ian Buzer, Managing Director of Preloved, said, We already have a range of stringent processes and some of the industry's tightest checks in place to ensure that the welfare of animals on Preloved is given the highest priority. This partnership with the NDWA is a great opportunity to extend this even further.

The move by Preloved is welcomed by NDWA as a positive wider step towards promoting improved animal welfare standards in the UK and breaking the cycle of unscrupulous individuals who profit from the exploitation of animals.
