"Greeder" not breeder!

Adopt, don't buy. Put an end to this business!

"A breeding facility".

This is where pups you see in pet shops come from. Meanwhile their mothers are locked into cages, crammed into tiny unheated rooms, and force-bred litter after litter after litter, until they get old or ill, and then they get dumped in a forest or roadside, or killed.

It's beyond a disgrace.

No one was injured in the blaze at the single-story wooden facility with a floor space of roughly 200 square meters. 

Except for the 40 dogs, you mean, who were burnt alive. But they must not count as sentient beings.

I know several people who have rescue dogs. A Rottweiler, shibas and a some mix dogs. All are happy. But the breed for home center dogs are too cute and inbreed to be thrown away in the mountain and survive. Usually a young couple gets a puppy, but when the first baby comes, they are out the door.

How can people escape alive and let 40 dogs die? Not enough care for the animals they profess to take care of. Something is fishy here.

How can people escape alive 

There is nothing to suggest that there were any people on the premises.

This type of horrible event happened n South Korea few weeks ago and now in Japan. Whoever responsible for it should be jailed for long term.

Agreeing with Maria here. There were no injuries, but 40 souls went to heaven.
