Registry and Regulation and a standard Code of Practise in all Boarding Kennels.
Currently in NSW and around other Australian States Boarding Kennels are not being properly overseen. We ask for Animal Welfare agencies like the RSPCA to get more involved in the Kennels and undertake inspections of these Kennels regularly. Kennels in NSW at the moment only have to adhere to local Council DA guidelines. The NSW DPI ( Dept of Primary Industries) have a NSW Animal Welfare Code of Practice No 5 - Dogs and cats in animal boarding establishments, although it covers a lot this Code doesn't appear to be being followed by all establishments. Call now for a Standard Code of Practise to ensure a Standard level of care for animals in all Animal Boarding Kennels. A Registry also needs to be established to record any animal deaths in the Boarding Kennels across NSW and other Australian States. This Registry will allow for some peace of mind for animal owners and ensure accountability of the Kennels.
