While factories the world over have recently been forced to shut down due to the economic crisis, puppy factories continue to boom. Mass-producing puppies for profit, their operators are simply business people with little or no concern for the animals they force to breed in appalling facilities. It's not uncommon for female dogs as young as six months old to churn out litters constantly for their entire lives. When they're no longer able to breed, they're euthanised. But perhaps the most shocking truth about puppy factories is that they're operating right here, in towns all across Australia.

At this stage in the fight to close puppy factories, awareness is our greatest weapon. Please forward this site to friends and family and become a fan of closepuppyfactories.org on Facebook to be kept updated on the campaign.


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.
