Stop Ignoring Cruel Puppy Factories

Target: Mike Baird, Premier of New South Wales, Australia

Goal: Stop ignoring pet cruelty and start implementing appropriate measures to end puppy mills.

Animal rights groups accused the New South Wales government of ignoring pet cruelty, despite public outcry for change. A government report shows that the government ignored recommendations that would help prevent cruel puppy factories from developing, and improve practices surrounding commercial breeding of companion animals. Even after investigations found hundreds of dogs to be living in horrific, prison-like conditions, animal welfare groups say that the area is severely lacking compared to other states. The founder of Oscar’s Law accused the government of protecting commercial interests of puppy farms and she stated that the response of the government showed that officials are “a friend of the industry, not of animal welfare.”

One of the ignored strategies to prevent the problem of these sick factories included a requirement to notify animal protection bodies when an application to develop a breeding facility came in. This would be a small step in the right direction, but it seems the Baird government is would rather ignore the issue all together or else they would’ve allowed this idea to be implemented. Instead, Minister Baird showed that the breeders are more important to him than the animals, saying that “it’s important that we don’t punish the breeders who are doing the right thing.

It seems that the prime minister has his priorities mixed up. These innocent animals who can’t defend or speak for themselves should be the top priority, not the breeders who are using the poor animals for money. Please sign this petition to demand that the prime minister stop ignoring this crucial issue and start implementing appropriate measures to end the cruelty in puppy factories.


Dear Premier Baird,

It has come to our attention that the NSW government has basically ignored the many ideas recommended by animal groups to help stop the horrid conditions for dogs living in puppy factories. Investigations turned up hundreds of dogs living in deplorable conditions within these factories, yet many of the strategies recommended to help stop the cruelty were ignored. It even appeared by your statements that the breeders themselves were of most importance to you.

We urge you to make these innocent, defenseless animals your top priority and implement appropriate strategies to ensure their safety from cruel conditions in puppy factories.

  1. Stop the breeding!! Wake up folks there are too many unwanted pets, the shelters are full. There is no responsible breeding with animal overpopulation at record numbers. Please put a moritorium on ALL breeding until animals are not abandoned to b killed in shelters, left on the street to die sad slow deaths or abused by sick predators that should be in prison or mental facilities for the criminally insane!!

    Almost every Puppy sold in a pet store has a mother who will spend her entire life in a tiny cage, never being petted, never being walked, never being treated like a dog.
    Female dogs are usually bred 2x a year. At that rate, they usually burn out by age 5, at which time they are put to death.
