New guidelines for pet web ads

New guidelines have been suggested by animal groups in the UK, aimed at preventing unfair online ads for pets.

The Pet Advertising Advisory Group (PAAG) has put together a list of minimum standards for websites.

It's hoped the new advice will protect the welfare of pets being sold on the internet and help people to make safer choices when buying animals online.

Underage animals, banned breeds and illegally imported species are some of the adverts that are causing concerns.
