1 July 2015: Victorian pet shop owners face stricter regulation. It's going to be even harder for the puppy factory trade to operate in Victoria! In a bid to crack down on illegal breeding operators, pet shop owners are now required to keep detailed records on every individual dog and cat sold or offered for sale, including where they were sourced from. This follows media reports in May 2015 of the death of a puppy in Perth after it was allegedly transported 4,000 km from an illegal puppy factory in New South Wales before being sold from a Perth pet shop. These new regulations are intended to make it easier for authorised officers including RSPCA Victoria to determine the source of animals in pet shops and to identify illegal breeders.
