LIV welcomes moves to improve pets welfare

LIV welcomes moves to improve pets welfare

By LIV Media


The Law Institute of Victoria welcomes recent moves by the State Government to improve the welfare of pets in Victoria.

These moves include the launch of the “Better for Pets” campaign, which aims to provide stronger welfare protections for Victorian pets and owners, and the establishment of the public-sector group “Animal Welfare Victoria”.

The LIV recognises that although details on the make-up of the proposed group have not yet been provided, its introduction is a positive step towards implementing the Victorian Government’s Animal Action Plan review of animal welfare legislation which was launched in 2016.

The LIV’s Animal Welfare Working Group looks forward to further consultation with the government around these projects and the anticipated introduction of a new animal welfare focused legislative framework.

The Working Group will continue to advocate for a legislative framework that rather than purely focusing on the prevention of cruelty, recognises that animals are sentient beings and should be afforded better protection than the current legislation provides.
