NSW Animal Welfare Reform - Issues Paper

Consultation on the NSW Animal Welfare Reform: Issues Paper has now closed. We would like to thank all of those who responded to our survey or provided a written submission. We are now analysing feedback for consideration and developing policy proposals in response to the issues raised.

If you were unable to make a submission during this round of consultation, there will be further opportunities to have your say in future phases of the project.


Thank you for your interest in reforming animal welfare laws in NSW.
