Domestic Animals Legislation

We are passionate about animal welfare. We do not believe the proposed changes will solve the problems they are intended to address; however, we do believe that these changes will negatively impact both animal welfare and the pet industry.

The petitioners therefore requests that the Legislative Assembly of Victoria not support the aforementioned changes to the Domestic Animals Act 1994 and instead call for the bill to be referred to a parliamentary inquiry or the relevant upper house committee to review so that an evidence-based approach to issues around animal welfare and the pet industry can be achieved.
