Thursday, 16 May 2019 8:00 am

We congratulate the Australian Capital Territory on being the first jurisdiction in Australia to recognise animal sentience in law, and we wholeheartedly support thier initiative because we agree that “people have a duty to care for the mental and the physical welfare of the animals in their care, and this legislation will strengthen protections for the welfare of animals".

And here is the ACT Government’s press release should you want to know more :-)
