Animal Welfare (population controls) Bill

The Member for Sydney, Alex Greenwich MP, has today introduced a bill to NSW Parliament that seeks to remove the legal impediments to carefully managed “trap-neuter-return” (TNR) programs.

TNR has been widely implemented overseas as a mechanism to control population growth particularly among stray cats. This bill proposes that TNR programs be required to have a sponsoring agency that would keep a register of programs and report on them. Only the head of the Agency that administers the National Parks and Wildlife Act could sponsor a program in a reserve or national park.

These are proposed to include a provision to be able to help prevent feline homelessness by providing temporary care and accommodation for cats and kittens owned by people who find themselves in crisis situations.
