Thread: Puppy Mills & Backyard Breeders - The Truth

  1. #1

    Exclamation Puppy Mills & Backyard Breeders - The Truth

    The following information is intended to educate new members, not so new members, our neighbours, our friends and families about the sad reality of 'Puppy Mills'/ Puppy farming.
    I believe that many of us just don't know about the horrible truth of puppy farming and the fact that it's happening right here in Australia. The fact that dogs are treated like battery hens, kept in cages, usually filthy and bred over and over for their entire lives - All for profit!. The fact that many of the 'Puppy Mills' pups will have health and/or temperament problems as there is little concern from the 'Millers' when it comes to that as it's all about the $, and the huge impact puppy farming has on Animal Welfare and Rescue groups.

    'This dog farmer claimed 'healthy pets, raised indoors'

    Please have a read about Where do puppies come from?and help spread the word about 'Puppy mills' especially if you have been considering getting your pup (or know someone who does) from a pet-shop, newspaper, or pet classifieds on the internet.


    'How do you know a dog will have puppies that have stable temperaments and make great house pets - when you're breeding from dogs that have never been one'..
    * The one thing we can all do is to NOT shop at stores that sell puppies or kittens *
    Shop at Pet-supplies stores only.


    'Grooming & bathing is non-existent in Puppy mill dogs. This dog has heavy, urine soaked greadlocks causing it enormous pain. It is also suffering from ear and eye infections'

    Thank you Paw-Sha
    Many people simply don't know about this horrible reality so hopefully we can all help by spreading the word. Also it's a 'supply-demand' issue. If people stop buying pups from shops; demand drops, supply drops and greedy backyard breeders loose profit. Lets all do our bit to help

    That is so cruel and heartbreaking to see. I'd like to see the people responsible put in the cages.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    Yep once again, ruthless people are breeding dogs like crazy, whilst thousands of dogs that would make great pets are abandoned to pounds and put to sleep. Shame on these so called "breeders".

    Thanks for that post. It's truely heart breaking to see those pics.

    Interesting fact - In some cultures is frowned upon to sell puppies as you are profiting from the separation of mother and child.

    I know this can't be taken literally but it's something to think about...

    *dogsrule - your quote rings so true

    I actually posted in another thread here that I will be posting a Puppy Mill Youtube video each day on my Facebook page for 1 week.

    I play a game on Facebook that requires you to add people to join your 'team'. I have atleast 1000 US 'friends' on my list that I know will see these videos. I just thought it would be great exposure to show people what a Puppy Mill/Farm is.
    My partner didn't know what one was until he came home from work yesterday and I was sitting at my computer all teary eyed from watching the videos. I made him watch all of the videos that I had saved to my favourites (the ones I will be posting on Facebook)


    I live in Airlie Beach, QLD, and the 2 pet shops here don't sell puppies or kittens, but they do sell lizards, snakes, spiders, fish etc...

    There was one video I saw, it wasn't a puppy farm one, it was an animal cruelty one in China. It showed all these dead puppies just laying in the street near a subway I think it was? Everybody was just walking past them like they weren't there

    I just wanted to go over there and bury their little bodies just so they weren't exposed and being gawked at
