I'm feeling wrung out, because I've just watched all the video clips on the Oscar's Law site. It's a site devoted to the fight to abolish the cruel trade of puppy farming.
Today I attended the Oscar's Law rally on the steps of the Victorian Parliament.
After listening to the speakers, I gathered that there has been a law passed in Victoria, but there have not been any prosecutions. (I'm not entirely sure I've got that right, but I did understand from all speakers that the government has not followed up on their promises with either money or resources.)
When I forced myself to watch the videos, I was disappointed to realise that we haven't ended the conditions in which dogs are starving to death, dying of preventable cancers, going insane, suffering endlessly.
I thought the suggestion in the following clip sounded helpful - that puppies should have to come with certification that says the breeding facility has been inspected by the RSPCA and is suitable and humane.
WARNING: the video segment is very sad and disturbing.
Here are a few photos from the rally:
