Change the Laws to Protect Animals

Currently the WA Law does not require dogs under the age of three months to be registered. It does not require people that wish to breed or sell puppies or kittens be registered with any governing agency. The protection for the care and welfare of the animals needs to be strengthened and doing so, close up some of the loopholes currently existing. We the petitioners noted below request: 1) A ban on the sale of animals through newspapers, the internet and trade markets and fairs except where the seller is an accredited breeder, or is a duly accredited rescue organisation. 2) That the sale of domestic animals to the public be restricted to registered breeders and duly accredited rescue organisations. 3) That a comprehensive and on-going education curriculum be introduced into primary and secondary schools focusing on animals, animal welfare, cruelty to animals and the responsibilities of caring for a companion animal. 4) That no commercial sale, gift or bequest of a domestic animal can be completed before a cooling off period of 48 hours has elapsed, allowing the potential purchaser time to understand the animal
