RSPCA WA Inspectors have removed 66 animals from a property in Gingin.
The animals appear to be in good condition and RSPCA WA would like to make it clear that this was a surrender of animals – there is no welfare issue with this case at this stage, and there is no evidence to suggest any contravention of the Animal Welfare Act.
This is simply a case of dog breeders with too many animals who have contravened local council by-laws. This case has highlighted just why dog breeding legislation is needed in WA.
