The Animal Welfare Act 1985 aims to promote the welfare of animals in South Australia. The Act was last updated in 2008. The South Australian Government is reviewing the Animal Welfare Act to ensure the laws governing animal treatment stay up-to-date with community expectations.

The Department for Environment and Water are currently seeking feedback on how the current laws are working and how they might be improved.

To get involved or learn more, visit YourSAy and complete the online survey. A consultation paper is available that provides background on the review and information about what is being asked in the survey. Consultation will close on Sunday 26 March 2023.

Please note that feedback should be provided through the YourSAy survey. Submissions via email or by any other means are not being accepted.
