Who is ACA?

ACA is a national incorporated association representing the interests of all animal hobbyists. Led by a strong committee composed of representatives for each major animal group – as pictured and outlined above. To find out more about how ACA is representing your favourite animals simply follow the links above.

You can have a voice – ACA has established Animal Advisory Groups for each main species. Individual members and member organisations can request to be included in these groups, so join ACA today and help by having your say!

ACA was established as an independant animal welfare organisation, by uniting experienced animal keepers, carers and breeders. Extreme animal rights and animal liberationist ideologies have been influencing government legislation, regulation and policy development & implementation, without proper consultation, at the expense of you and your animals. We are here to provide a trustworthy, balanced voice – protecting you and your animals.

Pets and Fireworks - Horses* Check locally to see if there are going to be firework displays in your area.* Where possible - tell the organisers of firework displays that horses are nearby and ask them to set off their fireworks in the opposite direction.* Keep to your horse’s normal routine as much as possible. * Check for anything they could hurt themselves on if panicked, making sure fences and gates are all secure.* Stay with your horse if possible—but remember your own safety—a panicked horse can be dangerous.* After the event keep an eye on your horse for stress related issues or injuries.Join ACA today: #EducateNotRegulate #AnimalWelfareIsAnimalCare #WelfareIsNotAboutNumbers #AnimalRightsIsNotAnimalWelfare #AnimalsMatter #PuttingAnimalsFirst #HumanAnimalBond #PetsAreFamily #CareForAnimals #ResponsiblePetOwnership #ResponsiblePetBuyer ...
