Anti-Puppy Farm Rally Day

This Sunday, 19th September, at 12 noon there will be a Puppy Farm Awareness Rally at the steps of Paliament House in Spring St, Melbourne. Speakers include Derryn Hinch and Moira Rayner and animal welfare groups will be there in support of an accountable pet industry that doesn't include factory farming of puppies which leads to mistreatment of animals and a surplus of dogs. No doubt Hugh Wirth, the RSPCA Victoria President and veterinarian, will lend his vocal chords to the cause.
There will be food and stalls in the Treasury Gardens afterwards and people are encouraged to bring along their crowd-friendly dogs for a truly Dogs Day Out.
Check out for more details.
