You may have seen Say No To Animals In Pet Shops info, pamphlets, or the website before - a campaign against the proliferation of puppy farms/mills and generally seeing "pet" animals as commodities to be bought and sold with little regard for their welfare.
Here's a new one: Lead The Way: The Animals (Regulation Of Sale) Bill - for animal welfare, against puppy farms (Australia):
We are a nation of Animal lovers, but we need to do more to ensure their well-being and eliminate animal cruelty. Regulating the sale of animals means a better beginning in life, and helps reduce the 60,000+ unnecessary deaths in NSW alone every year. This website has more information on the Bill, and makes it easy for you to support it. 'The principle here is about our responsibility as humans to the animal world'. Lord Mayor Clover Moore MP
