It is only by spreading this story and making people aware that even if buying a breed registered dog that the responsibility is ours to inspect the breeders premises and do some in-depth research. Here is the story below and please, share and share - it is only by working together that we can spread the word.
In ending, a huge thank you to Deborah Blane of Schnauzer Friends ZA and her team and the new owners - you guys ae simply amazing..
A YEAR AGO TODAY,
in June 2015, a warrant was obtained to enter the Roodewal Kennels in Ermelo, Mpumalanga after reports from the Schnauzer Friends South Africa community of abuse and sick and dying puppies. A huge network of puppy farmers was uncovered with a kingpin at the top doing the marketing. Between Schnauzer Friends South Africa, SPCA, SAPS, Ermelo Animal Rescue and Woodrock Animal Rescue, 320 breeding schnauzer were eventually rescued, sterilized, medically treated and rehomed. The advertising was amazing, all dogs had fancy long pedigree names and were KUSA or Canineza registered. The reality a very different story. Together we need to be a voice for the voiceless and continue to speak out against animal abuse! See some pics and read all about this massive rescue project here: http://www.schnauzerfriendsza.com/roodewal-exposure.html. This amazing story of a good triumphing over evil, and a community of animal lovers coming together and making a difference, is being featured in the June issue of Canine Zone Magazine, so don’t miss it. #gettingthewagback
