The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development will soon be carrying out public consultations in a number of key areas related to animal welfare.

Consultations on the Standards and Guidelines for the Health and Welfare of Dogs in WA and the implementing regulations for the national standards for Transport of Livestock and Livestock at Saleyards and Depots are expected to begin soon. The implementation of national Standards and Guidelines has been made possible by amendments to the Animal Welfare Act 2002, which were passed in November 2018.

Updates on the progress of these consultations will be made available as they occur.


Further information on reporting animal cruelty is available.
