Animals and Pets
In NSW, around 80 000 dogs and cats are lost, hurt or stolen each year. Most are impounded and are not able to be identified.
The Companion Animals Act was introduced by the NSW Government in 1998 to protect pets, their owners and the broader community. Animal micro-chipping now allows for your beloved pet to be returned to it’s home in the event it is hurt, lost or stolen.
For a guide on how to buy, sell, adopt or giveway a cat or dog please read through the below fact sheets.
