Changes to Companion Animals Legislation

On Wednesday, 23 February 2022, a private members bill to standardise the rehoming process for seized or surrendered companion animals passed Parliament. Under key changes to the Companion Animals Act 1998, Councils now must:

  • give written notice to at least 2 rehoming organisations that an animal is available for rehoming

  • take reasonable steps to advertise that an animal is available for rehoming on a webpage or a social media platform

  • follow new record-keeping requirements.

For further information about the Amendment, visit the NSW Parliament website.


Could you look after Mack for a week, while his carers are away? Mack needs a foster home from the 8th to the 15th March. He's a sweet, affectionate 7 year old desexed English Staffy who is waiting for his forever home. If you love strong yet sookie staffies, Mack will fit right in to your life. He needs a secure yard, indoor/outdoor access, and no other pets. Mack is not interested in other dogs and wants to be the only pet in the household, so he can soak up all the affection and attention. Mack is perfectly house trained and adores human company. There are no costs involved. Mack walks well on a lead and enjoys his daily outings, which are important for his mental and physical wellbeing. As a typical English Staffy, Mack is stocky and strong. He loves travelling in the car and is perfectly house trained. This lovely boy is ready to bring lots of joy into the life of some lucky person or family. Mack is staying at Moruya and is available for adoption in NSW and the ACT. In the meantime please consider whether you or anyone you know might be able to help us out by giving Mack a bed for a few nights. Phone 0424 228 425
