And puppy farming, like chicken farming is bad, how?

Isn't it that they are well fed and looked after because no one wants to buy a puppy with broken leg or something. So doesn't the puppy farm look after them? Or is it a video about free range puppy farming? I don't get it.

Let's make a few questions to stimulate the morality and your thinking.

-Why is dog farming wrong? Is it because of the raising conditions? Then if the raising conditions were the best, is dog farming still wrong?
-Is it because you are breaking puppies apart from their parents? Then how different is that from giving away your dog's puppies to a friend?

@ #3 Yes, the around 50% (I'm guessing) or so, of the puppies, who don't get broken limbs or infections from poor living conditions look like they've been well kept, that doesn't mean the living conditions are good for them. If you need to mass produce something with a profit, then forget about living conditions as any kind of a priority..

@ #5 Dog farming is wrong because it's gaining monetary profit at the expense of other animals (effective in all types of farming), who directly suffer as a result. Dogs, like cats, are not necessarily pack animals and as separating a child from its mother is a tragedy, it's not so bad for domestic dogs and cats. This is so because the mother-care period doesn't last very long for these animals anyway, plus most pets are kept as "children" anyway, so their caretakers are just being replaced, in a sense..

The real moral here is that the stray dog/cat problem is growing ever larger and it is a direct result (in part) of puppy farming - the bigger the circulation of a certain good (in this case, the animals), the bigger the "leftover."

Why would anyone buy a dog or a cat for money in a pet shop if across the street, the kennel is bursting at the seems of dogs and cats who actually need a home?

What kind of F*CKING ANIMALS keep these poor creatures on these conditions?

Absolutely revolting! I hope those animals die afraid and alone in a dark place.

I highly doubt that made-up statistic.

I know for a fact that Pets Mart and other shops get their puppies, and kittens, from local shelters, not 'puppy farms'. In fact most of the animals they have are adults, not puppies or kittens.

But let's take a look at the real reason why 'puppy farms' exist in the first place. Greedy purebred breeders, that charge $500 to $2000 for a puppy, which is a ridiculous amount to pay.

The best way to get a puppy is through a shelter, most times they may not have the breed of dog you would like, but they can either put you on a list. Should that breed of puppy come in they will call you, or you can contact breed specific rescue organizations.

Either way, spay or neuter the puppy you get, there are too many strays euthanized already.

#11 I don't understand people like you because there are BILLIONS of people that live in comparable oppression and no one seems to do nothing, in fact, I think humans like to dominate others to the limits before they break.

#8 that has nothing to do with usa.. in europe it´s the same...

Another sad part is that 50% of these puppies will be returned when they are grown old. and of course no one wants an old, big dog when there are so sweet puppies... oO
So please, before you buy your dog (wherever), realize that it´s not a toy!

Yes it's bad, we all agree.

So now we all go back to diner and have our steak and bacon and chicken. All from animals who certainly have had no better lives than these dogs.

I agree with all of you, but just like #3 said: how is this any different ?

#8 Well how does it feel to make an ass out of yourself? This vid is from Australia...didn't you catch the accent of the people in the pet store?
OscarsLaw.org is an Aussie organization trying to put an end to puppy mills just like other groups in Great Britan and the US are trying to do.
WW3 ? You are a sick puppy yourself , from a puppy farm?
Now if we can just get China to join in the movement.....

It's all "our" fault. All of us. Our constant demand for cheaper prices is the root of all our problems. Whether its food, pets, electronics, oil. We all want to have everything we see others having. "why not me" attitude is our new religion. We all gravitate to the cheaper price, its just "human nature" it seems.

And when we realize how/where it came from, we whine and complain about it... A few moments later its forgotten. Just like passing a traffic accident, you slow down for a mile or two, and then you're back to your old habits. Even if individuals took a stand about how and where things they covet are made and comes from, Companies/corporations will always take the cheaper option to maximize profit margins in fear of being out done by the competition.

Our societies, governments, hopes and dreams are all based on Greed and Gluttony.

So we are all f@cked anyways. Might as well just go with the flow. Pets are made by fairies and delivered by stalks. Electronics are made pixies in far, far away magical land using fairy dust incantations.

Out of sight...out of mind :D

If you're crying for some dog pups I am crying for you... REALLY... there's so much more worse treatment to animals and it doesn't make me half cry as much as there is poverty and lack of care as to humans in 3th world country's....

humans can't take care of their own species...
me I'm lucky to be born in an allright part of the world (belgium) (europe)

AND: even here I still see beggars and people who can't manage their own...

SOOOOOO PLEEEEEEAAAAAAASE!!!!!! all you people in your Ivory tower... WAKE UP!!!

by the way, even I, who has a daughter and wife, has to work 6/7 to have nothing left in the end of the month.... the story of many households... but i care about people (though i think i can't help them enough)

AND YOU CAN HELP PEOPLE WITH SMALL THINGS... (animals to btw...)

before you guys are wingeing that this is off-topic: I love animals as well and certainly believe this is wrong, here in belgium I don't see dogs in pet shops anymore... people go get them at breeders who care about their animals...

100 years ago all farmers loved their animals but oh yes, MONEY MONEY MONEY,
MAKES THE WORLD GO FUNNY... by the way, i'm a chef, i cook loads of meat >:) , i have 2 biological butchers that i take my meat from... small scale farmers... their cows have names and live as much as possible in the open field grazing grass...

anyway, that's off topic again...:)

You can rate the following comment however low you like, but here is what I have to say about all this.

I am strongly against applying consumerism standards to living things (dogs, cats, people, whatever). However, it is those brainwashed and brainwashing vegan-animal-loving bastards I despise and hate the most. And here is why:

You all know PETA with its $30-something million annual budget to protect animals, right? Now think about the following: PETA has killed more than 95 percent of the pets in its shelters in 2011 (1,911 cats and dogs). The total number of pets it has killed since 1998 is inconceivable - more than 27,000!!! 84 percent of pets arriving at their shelters are exterminated in the first 24 hours! And when asked if it is all true, they didn't even bother to deny it! Just read it:

http://dailycaller.com/2012/02/24/documents-peta-kills-more-than-95-percent-of-pets-in-its-care/

Now, I don't know about you, but I have a problem with that, because knowing these things, how can I be sure that this, or any other video like that, really does have animals' interests in mind? The bigger problem is not that animals are abused, but that thousands of bastards from either side brainwash people to get money. And I strongly believe we should start with solving this larger problem.

@ #17 and #18 ... I'm sorry, but where in my post did I imply anything about the US specifically? I really don't get it.. This is a global albeit mainly a first-second world issue and I don't understand how do you guys assume I was talking about the US?

$30 million to kill 2000 cats and dogs is $15,000 an animal. Like many charities today, their mission does not represent what they do and PETA's operating expenses are typical of many charities.

#27 That 1st world see them as toys and 3rd world as future dinner? (ok..that was a really bad joke..sorry) But the vid is right..if you plan to get an animal (esp. dogs) ..get them from a responsable breeder or inform yourself and rescue one of the many abadoned ones.

And about "How is this different from cow/pig/chicken farming" ..those are breeded for the purpose of food and every farmer trys to keep their cows healthy. So they can give good milk, have healthy "kids" to keep the quality high and secure the future of the farm. Sure there are exceptions..but at least where i come from a farmer with those conditions couldnt even sell the dump of a cow.

So comparing a puppy farm to a "food" farm is a different level.

Lets see how many vegans thumb me down for this comment..but remember..humans are omnivores..better farm your food (animals included) than hunt all the wild. ;)
