Puppy Factory Investigations 2010 ALV has filmed undercover in seven different puppy farms around Victoria this year. We always find the same thing, dogs who are either sick, blind, matted, malnourished, cold and shivering, exhausted from overbreeding, confined in tiny areas without exercise or socialisation - or all of these things. The common denominator is they are all treated as production units to make someone a lot of money.

KKK Puppy Farm Investigation - Dogs Trapped in Raised Cages, Footage from January 2009 This puppy farm keeps dogs in raised wire cages inside a tin shed. Dogs are forced to give birth straight onto the wire floor of the cage. ALV open rescue team gave video evidence to the authorities and pleaded to get the dogs out of the cages. This case ended up at VCAT where all parties argued about the size of the cages, not the dogs welfare. The court ruled that it was acceptable to keep dogs in raised wire cages as long as the cages were deemed the correct size. The dogs are still in the cages. Kelly Kesper owner of KKK puppy farm is still selling puppies online.
ACA/Banksia Park Puppy Farm - Shocking and killing dogs for a living. December 2009 SInce ALV first exposed ACA puppy farm in 2007 we have successfully been responsible for a 25% drop in their sales.

Now they have installed electric fences to stop the dogs who are desperate to escape.
