UPDATE 7 March: This inquiry has now closed.
New South Wales (NSW) has commenced an inquiry into puppy farming. This could be the first step on the path towards shutting down an industry that uses mother dogs as breeding machines until their bodies break down, confines them without socialisation or adequate veterinary care, and churns out hundreds of thousands of puppies every year into a world already bursting at the seams with homeless animals.

This is an important opportunity to make a lasting difference for dogs. The consultation closes on 6 March 2022, so please make sure your voice is heard before then.
