We are so excited about the launch of The Evil Secret of Chestnut Farm by author, Marie Stubbs. Why? Firstly, because it’s not only a great story for dog lovers of all ages, but a really important story for children to learn about the sad reality behind the adorable puppy that is for sale but in the most sensitive and acceptable way. And secondly because Marie has generously offered the proceeds of her book to help four organisations close to her heart.

As well as helping C.A.R.I.A.D in their relentless fight against puppy farming, the book will also help The League Against Cruel Sports in their work to stop dog fighting, Vets Get Scanning with their campaign for mandatory scanning of microchips to reunite lost and stolen pets, and Muffinpug Rescue who rescue, rehabilitate and rehome pugs – so many of whom have been purchased on a whim and are then sadly discarded because of their health issues.

We are also incredibly grateful to wonderful animal champion, Peter Egan, for writing the foreword for this book.
