Puppy Farm Awareness Day

G'day Dog Lovers,

Did you know that tomorrow (Saturday September 19) is Puppy Farm Awareness Day.

Puppy Farm Awareness Day is designed to raise awareness of puppy farming in Australia.
Many people are unaware that this cruel industry is alive and well in this country and each year hundreds are duped into paying, sometimes thousands of dollars for an unhealthy farmed pup.

A puppy farm is a large dog breeding facility created to mass produce puppies for profit. Likened to battery hens, the breeding dogs are kept in cages or pens for their entire life with the sole purpose of producing puppies for the pet shop, internet and overseas markets.

* Puppy farms contribute to hundreds of thousands of unwanted dogs who are killed each year in Australia
* Puppy farm puppies are more likely to have severe health problems, genetic defects and behavioural issues
* Documented puppy farm conditions include over-breeding, inbreeding, minimal veterinary care, poor food and shelter, crowded cages and lack of socialisation
* Dogs kept for breeding in puppy farms suffer for years and are bred as often as possible before they are killed, or are abandoned to rescue

spread the word to your friends about puppy farms. I've seen first-hand the horrible conditions these poor dogs are forced to live in, being forced to produce litter after litter after litter.

Puppies should not be sold in pet shops!
