End puppy farming in Western Australia
Home > Act Now > End puppy farming in Western Australia
Last year Victoria made history by passing legislation to ban puppy factories and the sale of puppies and kittens in pet shops. We pledged not to stop there, and now Western Australia could be next to be known for kindness over cruelty.
The new Labor Government in the state is right now shaping legislation that is similar in nature to Victoria, and they are calling on the public to have their say. This is your unique chance to influence the outcome of historic animal welfare legislation.
Legislation of this kind can be far reaching, and go beyond just the state it is implemented. You only need to read the article below to see that right now, there are New South Wales puppy factories supplying pet stores in Western Australia. This means a ban on the sale of animals in pet shops in Western Australia can also attack the cruel puppy factory business model elsewhere.
Oscar's Law will be making a submission asking for:
- A total ban on the sale of puppies and kittens in pet shops;
- A breeding dog cap (this makes puppy farming financially unviable) and;
- The introduction of an online register, which makes online sellers identifiable and traceable.
