This puppy factory in Kerang, Victoria, had known generations of suffering. Litter after litter of puppies were born into the barren concrete cells inside its walls. But no more…
In June this year, footage provided to Animals Australia from inside this puppy factory made news headlines, sparking authorities to investigate. Now, at last, the owners have decided to shut down the operation.
No longer will the walls of this prolific puppy factory imprison dogs!
And now the fight to end puppy farming continues...
Puppies from this puppy factory were being sold in Melbourne pet shops and online via sites such as The Trading Post. Unwitting customers were buying puppies, with no hint that evidence showed the pup’s parents were living without bedding, without appropriate access to water, and seemingly with little exercise or social interaction inside a puppy factory.
While this puppy factory in Kerang has closed down, many more continue to sell dogs online and through pet stores to unsuspecting individuals. Until the day puppy factories are banned, our greatest hope of ending this cruelty is cutting the ties between puppy factories, pet stores and online sellers.
Already, thousands of caring people have called on the Trading Post to end the commercial sale of dogs and cats through their website. Click here to add your voice!
