Opening
I really cannot believe that we need to be here today,having a puppy farm rally; puppy farms should not bein existence; Puppy Farms need to be abolished,increasing penalties for puppy farmers is not theanswer, abolishing the cruelty these farmers inflict isthe answer.I hope and pray that our Government understands thatthey are accountable for the mass cruelty and sufferingthat these animals endue. Our Government is the onlyone who has the power to abolish Puppy Farms.As the saying goes if there is a will there is a way;serious discussions need to occur within ourGovernment [Federal and State] addressing that theAustralian public loves our domestic dogs, we do notaccept or want these barbaric farms in operationPlease hear our voice
What is a dog?
What is a dog to you and I, its a an extension of ourfamily, we love her, we play ball, we go to the park, wego for walk, she our Childs best friend, she is your bestfriend, she loves you unconditionally, when you’ve hadthe worst day and come home to those lovingunderstanding eyes she is your life saver without youeven knowing itFor me the first time I understood the meaning of lovewas due to my first dog, Sally, she taught me themeaning of such a powerful emotion – Love
 
When our dog leaves this earth, we cry we are heartbroken; we have lost a cherished friend.
What is a dog to a puppy farmer?
It’s an industrial breeding machine, it has no feelings,its life is not cherished, the dog is only seen as income,the lack of veterinary care these dogs receive isappalling, the physical suffering they go through isunspeakable and the psychological scars are the worst.As there fertility weans, breeding dogs male andfemale are killed, abandoned or sold off to anotherpuppy farmer for a cheap price in the hope they ‘canget one more litter’. These dogs live and die a life of being a prisoner, aprisoner for profit.How do these farmers sleep at night, knowing of thepoor conditions they have these dogs in, having bigbrown eyes looking up at you, searching soulsdesperate for the hell that they are living in to end? Yet the cruelty which is inflicted upon them is forgiven –a dog is a master of forgiveness, if you did this to methere would be no forgiveness.
What is Dog to our Government?
I really don’t know ..Only time will tellPlease hear our voice.I just want to briefly talk about 4 ex puppy farm dogs. Three days ago a ten month old Maltese female dogwas rescued from a puppy farmer, she is so badlymatted, she looks just like Oscar if not worse.She gave birth to three puppies; two of those puppiesdied at birth.
 
On collection of this dog I immediately took her to a vet,we had to clip in rear end as she could not stand upproperly; we also had to clip her stomach so the puppycould reach for food.Here is a piece of her matted body. We cannot fully clipher for another two weeks as she will need to besedated. We have made this dog as comfortable aspossible.Her emotional scars are seen through her eyes, I onlyhope in time we can her give eyes back the life shedeserves. There is another female dog also rescued, we had tosedate this dog to clip her, as the Matts were so badlyembedded into her body, that we had to cut into herskin, she has several stitches all over her tiny body.Hope is 8 years old; she is a Caviller x Tibetan spanielshe has a grade 4 heart murmur, mammary lumps,rotten teeth and cyst all over her body. We triedconducting surgery on her, but due to her poorcondition her breathing was declining whilst she wassedated.
Hope is 8 years old in a 16 years old body.
Hopes daughter is 7 years old. She was born and breedin a puppy farm, apart from having mammary cancer,which we have since removed and rotten teeth, heremotional scars are so daunting, Faith hardly looks atyou, she is so scared.In an ironic twist Pregnant dogs and puppies are killedin pounds and shelters every day, so we have PuppyFarms over servicing for greed and we have laws inplace for healthy animals in pounds and shelters whichstate that these animals are to be killed. Something isterribly wrong here. The current legislation for our higheuthanasia rates for pounds and shelters is anotherissue and no doubt will be addressed in another forum.
