Thank you to all Dogs West Members who provided feedback to the State Government on the Stop Puppy Farming initiative.
Earlier this week the Local Government Minister David Templeman released the outcome of the consultation.
The 4,754 responses received by the Government showed broad support for the initiatives put forward, but no detail is available at this time on what may be put forward in any proposed Legislation.
Exemptions for Dogs West Members was the very strong message in the 457 Dogs West Member submissions put forward during the consultation phase, and work will continue to ensure a fair outcome for our Members.
We also await the consultation phase of the proposed changes to the Animal Welfare Act for the keeping, breeding and transport of dogs, and will update Members on the progess of both matters as they unfold.
