The Ugly Face of Backyard Breeding

The Ugly Face of Backyard Breeding

The Ugly Face of Backyard Breeding

The Tshwane Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) obtained a warrant from the Cullinan Magistrates court early yesterday, to enter a property of a dog breeder in Kameeldrift, after receiving complaints from members of the public regarding the conditions of the animals on the property.

The Tshwane SPCA, accompanied by the NSPCA, discovered over 300 dogs, mainly Yorkshire terriers, on the property of which most of these dogs were found to be kept in poor and dirty conditions, some had tumours, rotten teeth and other medical conditions that urgently needed veterinary treatment. There were also dogs kept in very small cages and continually used for breeding.

Chairperson of the Tshwane SPCA, Jaco Pieterse said “Many people are not aware that very often the cute puppy bought over the internet or from a pet shop was born to an animal that had to endure such suffering and pain as was seen today.”

The Tshwane SPCA confiscated over 30 dogs from the breeder who is registered with the Kennel Union of South Africa (KUSA). In our opinion, the breeder in concern operates a backyard breeding facility which is not compliant in terms of animal protection legislation. Sadly, 21 of the confiscated dogs had to be humanely euthanased due to their poor state of health. The remaining confiscated dogs are safely in the care of the Tshwane SPCA.

Criminal charges of animal cruelty will be opened in terms of the Animals Protection Act.

The SPCA is opposed to the uncontrolled backyard breeding of animals. We urge the public to rather adopt animals from reputable animal organisation’s like the SPCA, instead of buying animals from breeders.
