  • Support delivery of routine mobile animal care services to companion animals and livestock through regional community outreach;
  • Promote positive animal welfare outcomes.

The MACS 2022 program is delivered by the NSW Department of Primary Industries and is funded as part of the 2022-2023 State Budget.
