Puppy Farming Outlawed in Ireland

Barks of rejoice can now be heard throughout Ireland. After many, many years, puppy farms have been banned in the emerald isle.

The law went into effect on New Year’s Day, and what a happy day this was for puppies. The government hopes to clean up its country’s act by introducing two laws, the Welfare of Greyhounds Act and the Dogs Breeding Establishments Act.

These laws are set to control dog breeding and ensure breeders take care of their animals, in a suitable manner.

In addition to animals of all kinds rejoicing for their fellow “man,” “The Vampire Diaries” actor, heartthrob and animal activist Ian Somerhalder also showed his excitement for the ban on animal cruelty on Twitter.

Now, anyone who breaks the law will be punished with harsh penalties. Sadly, for years Ireland was known as the “Puppy Farm Capital of Europe,” but luckily now that won’t be.

Since puppy farming is outlawed, the production of hundreds of these cute creatures in harsh conditions is no longer possible.
