Stop pupp farming: adopt don't shop
  • Western Australians urged to 'Adopt Don't Shop' and give rescued dogs a second chance through adoption this Christmas
  • It is estimated that rescue and shelter organisations rehome 3,200 dogs a year in WA, while local government pounds rehome 1200 dogs a year
  • The State Government is committed to and working on initiatives to help Stop Puppy Farming in WA and to ensure the welfare of all animals

Pounds and shelter and rescue organisations currently rehome and care for unwanted dogs in WA (dogs that are stray or have been abandoned or surrendered). 

It is estimated that rescue and shelter organisations rehome 3200 dogs a year in WA, while local government pounds rehome 1200 dogs a year. Unfortunately, not all dogs are rehomed.

The State Government is committed to stop puppy farming and reducing the number of unwanted dogs. This is aimed at ensuring a better life for our companion animals and improving the welfare of all animals.
