Perth protesters are preparing to gather outside Parliament House over a bill to stop puppy farming, after a
WA pet shop advertised pups from a dog that “rotted from the inside out” at a farm in NSW.
Last week, the RSPCA raided puppy farms in Inverell and Wagga following
“allegations of animal cruelty and noncompliance of state breeding Codes of Practice”.
A 10-month-old boxer named Strawberry had allegedly died at the Inverell farm over a matter
of days after becoming ill during a pregnancy, while her remaining litter rotted inside her.
Three surviving puppies were shipped off to
pet stores, the Animal Justice Party said.
Two of those pups were being advertised by Perth pet
shop Claremont Puppies and Pets by April, according to WAToday.
“She was basically rotting from the inside out and that would be why she smelt of death,” the former worker said.
“And not once did (the owner) show any enthusiasm of taking Strawberry to the vet to have a caesarean or to get the medical treatment she needed,” they alleged.
