    Britain has now banned third-party sales of puppies and kittens in order to protect the animals from exploitation. 

    According to the Huffington Post, Animal Welfare Minister David Rutley said the ban "is part of our commitment to make sure the nation's much-loved pets get the right start in life."

    The government says the new law will help crack down on "puppy farms" and make it harder for dealers who have little regard for animal welfare.

    This is a wonderful step in the right direction. Marc Abraham, a veterinarian who appears on television and is the founder of Pup Aid, called it "a real victory for grassroots campaigners as well as the U.K.'s dogs and cats." 

    Way to go, UK!
