In January 2017, RSPCA Inspectors and detectives from the Goondiwindi Criminal Investigation Branch raided an alleged puppy farm in Glenarbon. You can read more about the seizures here and what happened at the farm here. Initially 27 of these pets were signed over by their owner to the RSPCA for rehoming.
As of the 22nd March 2017, the owner of a Glenarbon property was charged with a record 215 animal welfare related offences and has been summonsed to appear at Goondiwindi Magistrates Court in May.
The animals from the alleged puppy farm were recently forfeited to the RSPCA and over fifty have now been rehomed. However, as you can imagine, costs have reached well over $100,000 to care for and rehabilitate these pets.
