A Dogs Life on a Puppy Farm
The smell of a puppy farm is unforgettable, an overwhelming stench of urine and faeces. The simultaneous barking of hundreds of dogs creates a wall of sound that makes it hard to think, let alone converse.
Puppy farm dogs get no veterinary intervention when they need respite from their pain and suffering. They live in filth, sometimes without food or water. Their coats are often matted with faeces. Ear infections and ear mite infestations are common as is painful dental and gum disease.
Many dogs slowly go insane. They spin in circles or pace back and forth in their cells, some never see daylight, and the outside world is a foreign place to them. Should any dogs be lucky enough to be rescued once outside in the open they still circle and pace as if they are still incarcerated. They shy away from human hands as they have never known kindness.
This is cruelty on a very large scale that takes place day after miserable day in the name of commerce. Puppy farmers, pet shops, advertisers and even the Government all take their blood money from this horrendous cruelty.
The puppy buying public are misled at every turn thinking when they purchase a pup in a pet shop or over the internet that all is well and good at the source – when nothing could be further from the truth.
THE SOLUTION – Oscar’s Law
- Abolish the mass production of dogs. Make factory farming of dogs illegal
- Ban the sale of factory farmed companion animals from pet shops, online and in print media
- Encourage people to adopt animals from shelters, pounds and rescue organisations
- Work on increasing the re-homing rate in pounds and shelters
- Ask the Government to commence running a REAL campaign about true and responsible companion animal care.
