Help shut down puppy factories

No sky. No walkies. No belly rubs. No bed. This was life for the dogs at Pyramid Hill puppy factory — day in and day out. Until they were freed with the help of Animals Australia and RSPCA Victoria.

Without laws to stop puppy factories, other facilities just like this one continue to abuse dogs across Australia. Their puppies are sold to pet stores or online. These dogs need rescuing too.

You can be their saviour by pledging to adopt your next furry family member from a shelter rather than buying from a pet store. Not only will you make a stand against the cruelty of puppy factories, you will save a life too!

Pledge to help dogs!

Thousands of people have already pledged to help end puppy factories. Are you in?

“When I decide to bring a furry best friend into my home I pledge to save a life by adopting a needy animal from a shelter, rather than supporting puppy factories or the overbreeding crisis by buying from a pet store or breeder.” Sign the pledge

Help shut downpuppy factories

Imagine if you could gain a new best friend, save a life — AND help shut down puppy factories...

The great news is: you can.

By choosing to adopt rather than buy, you can save animals like ‘Joan’, ‘Celine’, ‘Ella’ and ‘Prudence’ from a life of misery in a puppy factory by helping to eliminate the market for these cruel facilities. Adopting also means rescuing a dog or cat from becoming a sad statistic: one of the hundreds of thousands of healthy but unwanted companion animals needlessly euthanised each year in Australia.

Be a hero to your next four-legged best friend by heading to Pet Rescue, or contacting your local animal shelter or rescue group (the list of Animals Australia member societies is a great place to start).
