URGENT: Object to 300-dog Adelaide Plains Council puppy factory

URGENT: Adelaide Plains Council are currently considering two puppy farm applications.
The applications are for 114 dog kennels and up to 300 dogs. There is no question about it - this is an application for a puppy farm.
We only have until 11 November 2020 to get in as many objections as possible. We’ve made a form with some text about why this application should be rejected, but feel free to personalise it. Once you have sent your objection, please share with your friends and family online.
If this application is approved, hundreds of dogs and thousands of puppies may suffer. Puppy factory legislation in South Australia is woefully insufficient.
While a Code of Practice was introduced in 2017, it has many loopholes. It allows a puppy farmer to kill their breeding dogs by any means except drowning and as long as it "causes death or unconsciousness as rapidly as possible".
The code also allows breeding dogs to be confined for 23 hours 30 minutes daily and for the sale of animals in pet shops.
We should be ending puppy factories, not building more.
As states like Victoria and Western Australia take positive steps towards ending puppy farming, we must send a strong message to the states like South Australia that are lagging behind by ensuring this application is rejected.
