Cracking Down on Irresponsible Breeders

Victoria recently announced its revised mandatory code of practice for breeding and rearing businesses, claiming it to be strictest set of regulations in the world to protect the welfare of domestic animals.

It’s come about as part of that Government's commitment to crack down on rogue puppy farms. For those interested, the Victorian government has provided tools, templates and a breeder training course on their website - www.depi.vic.gov.au/pets

ACAN continues to lobby for national legislation to put an end to irresponsible breeding practices. At the moment, differing regulations between states provides an environment where unscrupulous operators can thrive.

A nationally consistent breeder permit system would include a strong focus on the enforcement of a strict code of practice for breeders and sellers and education of breeders, sellers and buyers.
