We want to know what you think about dog and cat reforms in South Australia.

The Government is proposing a range of reforms to improve the management and welfare of dogs and cats in the community, including: 

  • changes to the Dog and Cat Management Act 
  • a new breeding code of practice

Two of the most significant proposed changes are the introduction of mandatory microchipping for all dogs and cats, and the requirement for anyone who breeds dogs and cats for sale to register with the Dog and Cat Management Board. A number of other changes are also being proposed.

We want to hear your views on what is proposed.
