puppy farms in Ireland

Did you know Ireland is considered the Puppy Farm Capital of Europe?

What is a puppy farm? 

A puppy farm is a commercial dog breeding facility that is operated with an emphasis upon profits above animal welfare and is often in substandard conditions regarding the well-being of dogs in their care. Due to the frequently poor breeding conditions in puppy farms, puppies bred there often suffer from health and/or social problems. Puppies raised in a cramped environment shared by many other dogs become poorly socialized to other dogs and to humans.

Rabbits are one of my favourite animals and I have had several of them over the years. They are a great pet provided you can give them the required space and care they need.

The rabbits I had as a child were bought from pet shops. Now that I have more experience with animal rescues and see the damage breeding pets for profit does, I would not purchase a rabbit again.

My puppy farm dog - Seymour

 

My reason for setting up the page and for getting involved in animal rescue is simple. I love animals and want to help them as much as I can. So knowing that I bought a puppy farmed dog is a bit depressing. Here is Seymour’s story:

Not everyone has the animals best intentions at heart. Some may have started out this way but have developed into an animal hoarding situation, or take donations but do not put the money towards the animals in their care. They may also be more interested in the praise they get.

Everyone involved in rescue needs to ask questions because the animals are counting on you to make sure they are safe.

Here are some warning signs to watch for before you work with or donate to a rescue:
