Coalition Government’s puppy farm protections commence

Congratulations to Peter Walsh, Minister for Agriculture in the Napthine Coalition government, on the ground-breaking reforms that came into force last week to protect puppies and crack down on illegal puppy farms.

Peter Walsh committed to make those reforms, and thanks to his drive and dedication, those reforms are now a reality.

The laws also protect kittens and other animals by requiring pet shops to keep better records and giving greater inspection powers to the RSPCA.
