The bad, bad thing that happened to Oscar and what we can do to stop it happening to others.

Who is Oscar?

Oscar was one of a number of dogs who were rescued from a puppy factory in central Victoria where they had been neglected to the point they required urgent veterinary care. The list of ailments the dogs suffered was extensive, including:

  • Severe matting — the dogs had to be sedated in order to shave their painful matted fur away from their skin;
  • ear infections;
  • gum disease; and
  • rotten teeth.

Once their matted fur was shaved it was evident that painful grass seed abscesses covered their bodies. The dogs were so severely malnourished their irritated skin was like paper and they were grossly underweight.

Days later and recovering from surgery, Oscar was returned by authorities to the very people who failed to provide veterinary care and neglected all their dogs including Oscar. They have never been charged with cruelty and Oscar remains on the puppy factory.

Oscar’s Law Campaign is in memory of all the ‘Oscars’ hidden away on factory farms treated as breeding machines to supply the pet industry.”

Time is running out for mass production breeders of dogs and cats.  Do your bit to help them on their way.

    I am forever trying to educate companion animal owners to desex their animals. i do a lot to stop animals from deathrow. the dogs that go in the pound i rehome 98% but cats i can’t. We are out in Rural area and having no vet and have to drive 120km to a vet and people have’nt the money for desexing. all desexing is over $100. Even once a year if we could raise monies for a vet to come and have a desexing day. A vet comes to Hillston sometimes and has his own building.

    It would be worth your while contacting the RSPCA in your State and requesting that they run some regular de-sexing days in your area.

    The National Desexing Network desexing week is coming up in August, so you might contact then for advice as well.

    Please post any reply that you get from the RSPCA.

    Thanks for writing.

    I understand Jill that in rural areas you have legitimate problems. It’s the same for humans without any doctors in rural areas as well. Thank you for all you are doing to help anyway.

    If governments did something about the overpopulation problem then our council rates would be cheaper. Don’t forget it is us who are paying for the pounds to operate and kill innocent animals.
