Why ACA?

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.

Thanks so much for the update. Has there been any stakeholder consultation on a draft?

Support education & responsible breeding — NOT restrictions!

The McGowan Labor Governments new laws SHOULD NOT be supported! These WILL NOT put an end to puppy farming in WA — it will increase puppy farms.
These laws will massively increase the numbers of dogs and cats suffering and needing re-homing as seen in Victoria where these laws already exist.
