Bodies of dead dogs were left to rot - don't approve this puppy farm!

Earlier this year, we exposed a horrific illegally operating puppy factory in Inverell, NSW. There were bodies of dead dogs scattered around the property, with one of them being placed inside a dog food bag and left to rot, and all of the other dogs were living in appalling conditions.

Just recently the owners of the facility, which has until now been illegally operating for years, have applied for a permit to have 300 dogs – 280 females and 20 males.
While we have been aware of this situation for the past few weeks, we have deliberately held off on posting due to an impending Council and RSPCA inspection – so as not to alert the puppy farmers. Unfortunately the local MP notified some members of the public and inadvertently the owners of the puppy factory were alerted, so they were aware of the inspection and had time to prepare.
However, despite all of this, nothing at the facility has changed from when we first raided it. There is no plumbing or easily accessible water, the dogs are living in dirt pens in filth, and they are not complying with the code of practice. When one of the councilors asked how many dogs were on the puppy factory, the owners didn’t even know.
On top of the application for a permit, the owners are appealing their $90,000 fine, which they incurred for breaches from our investigation and a subsequent RSPCA raid.
We cannot let them get away with this! Please sign our petition asking the Mayor of Gwydir Shire Council to turn down the application.
