The Queensland Government is reviewing the Animal Care and Protection Act 2001 (the ACPA). The review marks 20 years since the ACPA commenced.
Animals are an important part of life for most Queenslanders and their welfare is held in high regard by the community. The review will examine all aspects of the ACPA to ensure it continues to meet evolving community expectations and modern animal welfare practices.
Consultation is integral to improving legislation. Queenslanders have wide experience and diverse knowledge about the welfare of animals. You are encouraged to share your ideas and feedback as part of the review. All feedback will be considered.
