A front page story in today’s Sunday Herald Sun newspaper features photographs taken by Uproar and ALV investigators. The story details how massive new fines, jail terms and unprecedented powers to shut down illegal puppy farms will be introduced in Victoria in a crackdown on animal cruelty.

Rogue puppy farms hit (Sunday Herald Sun)
Last week VCAT (Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal) made an outrageous decision giving the go ahead for Robert Attard’s proposed puppy factory in Ballan, ignoring objections from Moorabool Shire Council, Barwon Water, animal groups and over 1300 objectors!
A year ago the Moorabool Shire Council and Barwon Water rejected Robert Attard’s application to build a puppy factory in Ballan. Thank you to the many ALV supporters who objected to this cruel permit application.
We now need as many people as possible to help reverse this deplorable decision by VCAT. Please take action and write to the Victorian Premier Ted Baillieu and Planning Minister Matthew Guy.
Please help prevent the expansion of a puppy factory by submitting an objection to the Pyrenees Shire Council ASAP.
We have prepared a draft objection below, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to reword the letter and ensure you include your name and address. Thank you!
