A dog's life in puppy farms here?

An investigative piece in the October issue of Australia Cleo magazine has described the conditions of puppy farms and pet shops here and in Australia as shocking.

The writer had made the allegations that Australian puppy farmers are making thousands of dollars selling dogs to pet shops in Singapore, where the animals are “forced to live in squalor and confinement”.

But she did not visit these places herself nor did she make the trip to Singapore. She based her story on the findings of Australian humane group Oscar’s Law.

When approached, Ms Debra Tranter, 47, founder of Oscar’s Law, told The New Paper that the group visited “all the puppy farms and pet shops located at Pasir Ris Farmway 2”.

But dog breeders here told TNP the story is inaccurate and industry standards are followed.
