In Australia, it is against the law for dogs to be bred in kennels. Unfortunately, one dog was still forced to give birth to puppies under such circumstances. However, this brave mother decided to hide her young ones in a wall cavity so that they wouldn’t have to go through the same suffering as she did.
The dogs residing in a kennel in South Australia were in poor shape – they were malnourished, mistreated, and compelled to bear countless litters. Several animal welfare organizations, including ‘Oscar’s Law,’ became aware of this situation and decided to expose the appalling living conditions of these dogs. They carried out various tests and presented their findings to the RSPCA (Animal Protection Society).
The officials made the decision to step in and save the animals from the factory and the terrible conditions they were being kept in. However, it was later revealed that there was more to this gruesome tale than what initially met the eye.
The visitors were captivated by a female beagle standing watch in a corner. Upon further investigation, they discovered that the dog had concealed her four puppies in a crevice within a wall, hoping to protect them from being stolen or meeting the same fate as she did.
Although the operation has since been shut down, the fate of the animals is uncertain due to the legality of these types of factories in New South Wales and other parts of the world.
Consequently, concerned individuals have begun a petition to gather signatures with the aim of quickly modifying this regulation and ending the proliferation of these puppy mills.
