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.

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.

NSW: Animal Care Australia to appear at Inquiry into the operation of the approved charitable organisationsApril 2024: Animal Care Australia has been requested to give evidence at the Inquiry. Our submission to the Inquiry included: * Significant funding has been provided to the RSPCA for the sole purpose of enhancing enforcement capabilities, HOWEVER the continued lack of detail provided within the (public) Annual and Financial reports indicates the RSPCA has consciously opted to disregard recommendations from previous Inquiries.* The operational model followed by Animal Welfare League is in complete contrast to that followed by RSPCA NSW. ACA supports the AWL.* ACA STRONGLY recommends this Inquiry Committee and the NSW Government develop and recommend a standardised criteria of reporting for the purpose of all future Inquiries into the Approved Charitable Organisations.* ACA outlined a number of additional concerns with the RSPCA no longer accepting surrenders, their involvement in the brumby cull assessment, no longer assisting local councils, and more.The Inquiry can viewed via webcast on Friday 26th April 2024.
