Government action on unethical breeders: a step in the right direction, but more funding is needed

AWL NSW welcomes the state government’s commitment to review penalties and enforcement measures for breeders, and supports the creation of a new single database with breeder and owner information.

While this is a step in the right direction, until NSW gets a properly funded breeder licensing scheme up and running, unscrupulous breeders will continue to operate, animals will continue to suffer and our capacity to shut these operators down will be restricted.

We hope to see the review of penalties and funding finalised as soon as possible, so that unethical breeders can be shut down for good.
