Oscar's Law - Encourage people to adopt animals from shelters, pounds and rescue organisations Abolish the mass production of dogs - Make factory farming of dogs illegal
Oscar was rescued from appalling conditions at a puppy farm in Central Victoria, Australia.
Oscar suffered terribly and had infected ears, dental disease and inflamed infected gums, his fur was so matted it felt like concrete and his skin was barely visible. Once his matted fur was shaved under general anesthetic due to the pain he was in, his skin was covered in abscesses caused by grass seeds.
Oscars freedom was short lived. Days after his rescue police raided an animal activist's home and seized Oscar and returned him to the puppy farm.
We need your help to get justice for Oscar and other dogs like him who are factory farmed in Australia.
We need all of you to SPEND 5 MINUTES A DAY to lobby both the Liberal and Labour parties and call for an inquiry into the factory farming of dogs. We want Oscar’s Law. The current legislation is not working, it has never worked since it was introduced in 1994.
Abolish the mass production of dogs. Make factory farming of dogs illegal
Ban the sale of animals from pet shops, online and in print media
Encourage people to adopt animals from shelters, pounds and rescue organisations
Work on increasing the re-homing rate in pounds and shelters and introduce the no-kill philosophy
