Dog-lovers have publicly protested against a Welsh Assembly Government
grant which can be used to set up dog breeding facilities on farms.

A 15,000-name petition objecting to the so-called 'puppy farm' grant was
handed in at the assembly's headquarters in Cardiff on Tuesday.

The grant was introduced to help farmers to diversify and the money would
help to pay for kennels and exercise yards, but not to buy the dogs.

But a number of animal welfare workers want the grant scrapped, claiming
there were already too many unwanted dogs.
