Companion Animals – have your say!
The NSW Government has released the Companion Animals Taskforce discussion paper and submissions will be accepted until 1 July 2012.
The paper and on-line submission form are available here
We urge everyone who cares about animal welfare to consider this report and take the time to give feedback – our animal friends need you to speak up for them.
Cat Protection congratulates the Minister for Local Government, the Hon Don Page, and the Minister for Primary Industries, the Hon Katrina Hodgkinson, for establishing the Taskforce, and also the Member for Charlestown, Andrew Cornwell for his work as Chairman.
Wouldn’t it be fantastic if we had more pet-friendly accommodation? How many unplanned litters of kittens would be prevented if there was an incentive for early-age desexing? Think of the benefits of broader education and information on socially responsible pet ownership, and what could be achieved with greater collaboration between councils and animal welfare organisations. Do you want to support steps to curb puppy farming?
Don’t just wish, act. Please participate in this important initiative to bring about better outcomes for cats and dogs in NSW.
