URGENT: Help Stop Gippsland Puppy Farm Expanding!
Your help is urgently needed to help stop the expansion of a puppy farm in Heyfield, Victoria. Gary Jones has applied for a Planning Permit to increase the capacity of his existing puppy farm from 100 to 300 dogs. The description he gives in his application paints a grim picture for the dogs. He claims the expansion will create jobs within the community – but at what cost to the animals trapped in small enclosures pumping out puppies? Through years of investigating puppy farms ALV has documented how dogs are used as breeding machines, producing puppies in back to back cycles before being killed when they are no longer economically profitable.

As at the date of sending this update out, we have heard that this application has now been rejected due to the very large number of messages already sent out to Wellington Council. This is fantastic news and shows the power of the internet in canvassing public help to take action.
