Target: RSPCA- DPI – PIAA,
We the undersigned people want to see changes made across the board in all NSW Boarding Kennels, and through this we would like to see the RSPCA in other Australian States follow their NSW colleagues lead.
Kennels at the moment only have to adhere to local Council DA guidelines and this is not adequate enough.
We call now for a Standard Code of Practise to ensure a decent Standard level of care for animals in these Animal Boarding Kennels.
We note that the NSW DPI ( Dept of Primary Industries) have the following NSW Animal Welfare Code of Practice No 5 – Dogs and cats in animal boarding establishments, although it covers a lot this Code doesn’t appear to be being followed by all establishments, otherwise Baron, a Beagle, Annie and Hans and Costa would not have died.
A Registry also needs to be established to record any animal deaths in the Boarding Kennels across NSW.
This Registry will allow for some peace of mind for animal owners and ensure accountability of the Kennels.
