Puppy Farm Awareness Day has been conceived to raise and promote awareness against the cruel practice of puppy farming in many countries. Not many people are aware that this practice is still in vogue resulting in the breeding of thousands of unhealthy pups. Many people are duped to buy unhealthy farmed pups in lieu of a hefty sum of money! The pups that are torn away from the mother at a very delicate age are prone to behavioral and physical problems which often lead them to death at a very young age.
Puppy farm Awareness Day, which is celebrated on the 19th of September, aims at raising awareness against the poor living conditions of dogs, especially bitches, in puppy farms where they are used as mere machines to produce pups for profit. Animal welfare charities come together where they ask the public to remember the miserable conditions of the four-legged friends of mankind and advocate shutting down of these ‘farms’ where profit is the sole concern with no regard for healthy living conditions of the animals. The dogs are kept in tiny cages to optimize space for more animals. They suffer from malnutrition and hardly see the daylight. Often with little or no veterinary help, the animals die a painful death.
The Puppy Farm Awareness Day is a special day for the dog-loving people to help raise awareness for the cause and stop the cruel trend of puppy farming. It is a golden opportunity to go out of the way and make sure that the pawed friends get a good and healthy life.
