Animal Welfare

Animal Welfare laws review

The current Animal Welfare Act is out-dated and inadequate for ensuring the humane treatment of animals in Western Australia – be they our domestic companions, farm animals or our precious native wildlife.

The Act is currently reactionary only and focuses narrowly on offences relating to animal cruelty and abuse. It does not set out minimum standards for the humane treatment of animals, nor does it allow for conditions that allow animals to express their instinctive behaviours.
