Puppy Farms

G'day Dog Lovers,

In the latest issue of Dogs Life (on-sale today) there is an interesting story on puppy farming. Personally, I thought it pretty scary to find out just how big a problem puppy mills are in Australia, with dogs abused, mistreated and seen as little more than production units.

Just last week, Dogs Life heard from the RSPCA about a new campaign they are launching. They are planning to work with individuals, groups and governments to stamp out puppy farming in Australia.

To start things off, they want your feedback on the issues outlined in their discussion paper (to find this, go to http://www.rspca.org.au/how-you-can-help/campaigns/puppy-farms.html).

The RSPCA will then compile all the responses and prepare a summary of all the ideas put forward to try to end the suffering of thousands of dogs across Australia. It's a great idea and one I urge you all to support.
