Laws in the review process have long been failing farmed animals in Australia. And we just received news that this will continue for over another decade.
Twelve years ago, the Federal and State Governments were meant to review the standards farmed poultry are living in. In what was anticipated to be a step forward, governments have decided that hens can continue to be confined in batter cages for at least 10-15 more years.
If you want some statistics, it means that up to 55 million more hens will live miserable lives in cages.
At Dog Breeders Brisbane Club, we are passionate about helping Dog breeders in Brisbane and puppy breeders in Brisbane. But, our care for animal welfare doesn’t extend to just this. We are concerned about the welfare of all animals.
For this reason, we aren’t giving up. We want to explore every avenue so we can help these hens and have them freed earlier. We believe that if enough of us rise and take action, their lives and conditions can improve sooner rather than later.

With all these petitions in the world, how will this make a difference?
When the review on poultry treatment began, there wasn’t even thought about removing battery cages. But, 167,000 people stood up during the public consultation period, 99% standing up against battery cages. It was the largest response ever when animal welfare conditions were considered.
Though there has been little progress during this time, we have seen substantial strides in the fact that there is at least an end date for the future of these battery cages. Now, we want to rise as a community again to alert the government and bring this date closer.
If you are interested in lending a hand, you can do so by clicking the link above and writing a message to your MP. Just like you would support the welfare of dogs by calling out unethical Brisbane dog breeders, we want you to do the same for this industry.
This drawn-out review has exposed deep flaws within Australia’s animal welfare regulation system. These are problems the Albanese government has promised to fix. We are passionate about holding this government to this promise by shifting their thinking and showing them where the problems lay.
In the past, we have accepted that it is okay to treat animals this way. Now, we know it was never okay to treat sentient beings like this. So many people are now taking the opportunity to stand against the poor treatment of animals. We hope that you wish to stand out against this injustice.
Thank you for your support of DBBC and the animals of the world.
