The absence of modern legislation in the area of Animal Welfare has resulted in a complete dereliction of our duty to animals in this country. Updated legislation on Animal Welfare is long-overdue and it is essential that government ensures it's implementation.
The Animal Health & Welfare Act
The main outstanding animal welfare piece of legislation is the long-overdue Animal Health and Welfare Act. The current Protection of Animals Act dates from 1911.
