ANIMAL welfare activists staged a peaceful protest against puppy farms outside a Melbourne pet shop yesterday.
The group, led by Debra Trantor, has pledged to single out different pet shops this year in their bid to abolish mass-breeding facilities.
“We’re targeting all pet shops, not singling out any pet shop in particular. All pet shops that sell animals are providing a retail outlet for puppy farms and backyard breeders,” Ms Trantor, who formed lobby group Oscar’s Law. said.
